MatBio - Mathematical Foundations in Bioinformatics

The students of the Algorithms and Bioinformatics research group at King’s College London invite post-graduate and post-doctoral students to the second Student Conference on Mathematical Foundations in Bioinformatics, sponsored by the Department of Informatics at King’s College London and the London Mathematical Society.

The aim of this Conference is to enable communication between early stage pioneers in the field and showcase applications of combinatorics, statistics and general mathematical principles to solving problems in Bioinformatics. It is expected this will inspire professional networking, collaboration and future advancements in the careers of the postgraduates involved; and it will also promote the sharing and development of methods and approaches to problem solving. Each session of this one-day conference will feature an invited talk followed by oral presentations by students. Breaks will provide the opportunity to network; lunch will be hosted in a local restaurant.

We invite students to submit abstracts to be considered for oral presentation by 25 July 2017, using this form. Selected abstracts will be invited to submit full papers to a special issue of Fundamenta Informaticae.

Registration is free, please sign up here by 15 August 2017. Travel support can be provided upon acceptance of a successful application, please apply here by 25 July 2017.
