ECCB’14 is the key European computational biology event in 2014 gathering scientists working at the intersection of a broad range of disciplines including computer science, mathematics, biology, and medicine. New challenges are emerging today in these fields with the recent advances in low-cost ultra-fast sequencing, bio-imaging and big-data approaches. Databases and software are evolving especially rapidly. Nonetheless, new algorithms are still required to improve computing with massive biological or biomedical data. Indeed, multi-scale integrative analyses are struggling to deal with the enormous complexity of biological systems modeling and the “data deluge” that results from next-generation sequencing technologies.
Participation at ECCB’14 will be the prime opportunity to keep pace with cutting-edge research in such exciting topics, and to network with other members of our community. We cordially invite you to submit your work as a paper, a poster, or as workshop or tutorial topic.
ECCB’14 is the 13th edition of the ECCB conference series, which in 2014 will take place in the historic city of Strasbourg in the north-east of France. ECCB’14 will incorporate JOBIM, the annual French bioinformatics conference. An inter-regional and cross-border Organizing Committee has been formed, joining the Champagne-Ardennes (Reims), Lorraine (Nancy), and Alsace (Strasbourg) regions in France together with Belgium (Leuven), Germany (Saarbrücken), Luxembourg, and Switzerland (Basel). We are all looking forward to welcoming you in Strasbourg for ECCB’14 !
