ELIXIR partners with DTL and BioSB in organising ECCB2016

ELIXIR becomes the co-organising sponsor of the 15th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB), to take place on 3-7 September 2016 in The Hague. As part of the ECCB2016-ELIXIR partnership, the programme of the conference will feature a dedicated track to showcase ELIXIR activities and services. “We are delighted to have ELIXIR as a strong partner”, says Jaap Heringa, chair of the ECCB2016 Organising Committee. “As one of the major initiatives in Europe and globally, we are happy to give ELIXIR a venue to present their work to the international and multidisciplinary audience at ECCB.”

The ELIXIR sessions will be part of the Application Track, a new initiative to promote applications of computational biology beyond academia. The talks in the ELIXIR track will present the full range of ELIXIR activities taking place within the ELIXIR nodes network; they will be selected through an open call, launched today. Niklas Blomberg, ELIXIR Director: “Since the ECCB conferences are must-attend events for all involved in computational life sciences and an ideal platform to showcase new technologies, applications, tools and services, ECCB2016 will be the perfect opportunity to present the full spectrum of our work, and our vision for the future. I look forward to working closely with our colleagues in the Netherlands to co-organising ECCB2016 and contributing to its success.”
