ABiC 2014 - Australian Bioinformatics Conference

ABiC 2014 is the inaugural Australian Bioinformatics Conference, and will precede the AGTA 2014 conference. ABiC is a meeting by bioinformaticians, for bioinformaticians. The focus is on methods, tools and community rather than biological outcomes.

There will be top notch international and national invited speakers. We encourage you to attend even if you don't plan to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation, but if you do, we have student and ECR prizes and travel bursaries for students. Conference registration is a steal at $99 including 7 opportunities to eat and a drinks poster session.

See you in October in Melbourne!
