We are delighted to welcome you to the 19th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB2020) under the motto Planetary Health and Biodiversity will take place from August 31st until September 8th, 2020. Due to the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the ECCB will offer a reduced and virtual event full of scientifically attractive talks for nine days. The ECCB2020 main conference on September 7th and 8th will offer a two-day programme with a significant number of top keynote speakers and insightful themed talks selected from delegates submissions as well as exciting sessions from different bioinformatics communities including ELIXIR as European representative. The week prior to the main event, delegates will be invited to join the New Trends in Bioinformatics by ECCB, a newly designed format to virtually hosting a selection of ECCB2020 workshops and tutorials.
ECCB2020 welcomes scientists working in a variety of disciplines, including bioinformatics, computational biology, systems biology, artificial intelligence, biology, medicine, environmental sciences, and many more. Participating in ECCB2020 will be the perfect opportunity to keep pace with cutting edge research while interacting with a diverse and broad representation of the research community across many domains in Life Sciences and beyond. We are sure that the conference will facilitate knowledge dissemination of great interest and benefit, vivid scientific debates and collaborations, enjoyable interactions through virtual platforms and will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas.
We would also like to express our warm thanks to official and institutional sponsors for their generous support on the ECCB2020.
For sure it will be a unique event, so we invite you to join us at the ECCB2020!
With best regards,
Alfonso Valencia & Salvador Capella-Gutierrez on behalf of the ECCB2020.
