The 16th Annual International Biocuration Conference provides a forum for curators, developers, and users of clinical and life sciences data, knowledge, and models to discuss their work, promote collaboration, and foster the community around this active and growing area of research. Participants from academia, government, and industry interested in the tools, methodology, and philosophy of curation in the clinical and life sciences are encouraged to attend and submit an abstract for consideration for an oral or poster presentation. This conference is organized in part with the International Society of Biocuration (ISB).
Following the virtual installments of the Annual International Biocuration Conference in 2021 and 2022 due to the pandemic, we are pleased to announce that in 2023 we will return to a fully in-person (i.e., no remote options) meeting in Padua, Italy from Monday, April 24th lunchtime to Wednesday, April 26th, 2023 (📅 ics). Conference workshops will be held on the afternoon of Sunday, April 23rd and the morning of Monday, April 24th.
Registration can be completed here. You don’t need to register in order to submit an abstract.
Travel fellowships are available from the International Society of Biocuration (ISB). More information on eligibility and application can be found here.
Abstracts can be submitted to be considered for oral presentations or poster presentations through EasyChair. You don’t need to register ahead of time in order to submit an abstract.
Please see here for additional information and guidelines on submission.
Workshop proposals can be submitted for consideration through this form until December 23rd, 2022.
