Call for workshop and tutorial proposals now open

The [BC]2 Basel Computational Biology Conference 2015 will feature a one-afternoon workshop / tutorial session on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 as part of the official conference program.

The purpose of workshops is to provide participants with an informal setting to discuss the cutting edge of a research field. A workshop could e.g. provide an interesting perspective on technical issues, exchange research ideas, and share practical experiences on some focused or emerging topics in bioinformatics.

The purpose of the tutorial program is to provide participants with lectures or practical training covering topics relevant to the bioinformatics field. Tutorials should offer an opportunity to learn about new areas of bioinformatics research, to get an introduction to important established concepts, or to develop advanced technical skills.

This call is an invitation for scientists and professionals working in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology to submit proposals for high-quality workshops and tutorials for the [BC]2 conference. For more information, please see:

We are looking forward to receiving your proposals before 4 January 2015.
