Women in Computational Biology
Janelia’s first “Women in Computational Biology” conference will showcase extraordinary research being done by women in this traditionally male-dominated field. Although small in size (~60 people), the conference will be thematically broad, with presentations and discussions on the application of computer science, mathematics and physics to cellular and molecular biology, evolutionary biology, genomics, neuroscience and image analysis. A Program Committee of six field leaders have hand-selected the invited speakers for their particular sessions and will help the organizers shape the program. A full list of program chairs and invitees is included below.
The intimate nature of Janelia conferences offers an ideal forum for attendees to network and build collaborations. Participants in this unique and exciting meeting will include women working in computational biology, as well as those of any gender who are committed to advancing or promoting the accomplishments of women in computational biology.
While presenters will identify primarily as female, all genders and those who are non-binary are welcome to apply.
