The International Conference on Genome Informatics (formerly known as Genome Informatics Workshop or GIW) is the longest running international bioinformatics conference.
The ABACBS Annual Conference is the national bioinformatics conference in Australia and now in its fifth year.
This year these two conferences will join forces to bring together members from all over Australia, the Asia-Pacific region and the world to enjoy the opportunity to interact and hear fantastic stories about genomics, bioinformatics and computational biology research with an emphasis on how advances in computational and statistical techniques are applied to solve important biological and biomedical problems.
The joint conference will feature international and national keynote speakers, oral presentations selected from full-length paper submissions and abstract, and posters selected from abstract.
We look forward to seeing you at GIW/ABACBS-2019!
