2021 Bioinformatics Open Source Conference

2021 Bioinformatics Open Source Conference

Tuesday, May 4, 2021
The 2021 Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) is a forum for developers and users to interact and share research results and ideas in open source bioinformatics and open science.

Topics include software development practices that promote open science standards and sharing of biological data and code, as well as approaches for building diverse communities. BOSC is a track of the conference on Intelligent Systems in Molecular Biology / European Conference on Computational Biology 2021 (ISMB/ECCB), and it will be held online on July 29-30. 
The main abstract deadline is May 6th. Please see our announcement on the BOSC website for complete details at https://www.open-bio.org/2021/03/24/join-us-at-bosc-2021

Requesting registration fee assistance: We realize that the cost of ISMB/ECCB may be prohibitive for some. If you are submitting an abstract to BOSC and would have difficulty covering the cost of registration, you can request registration fee assistance during abstract submission.
Increasing diversity in participation: Please share this announcement with other people and groups who might be interested. We are particularly interested in reaching out to communities who may not yet be aware of BOSC!
