ALPHY 2016: French-Belgian meeting on Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Genomics

Important date: Deadline for abstract submission, travel grant application and registration: January 15 2016

ALPHY is an annual meeting, organized in France since 1995, dedicated to the field of Bioinformatics and Comparative Genomics (ALPHY = ALignments and PHYlogeny). The main goal of this meeting is to promote informal communication in this highly multidisciplinary field, and to encourage young scientists to present their work.

This year, ALPHY is co-organized by Belgian and French scientists in Lille, with the hope of enhancing scientific exchanges between research groups of these two countries. There will be two invited speakers (Karine Van Doninck and Christian Parisod), and the program will be open for around 20 contributions of 20' talks. ALPHY is funded by the GdR BiM (working group in Molecular Bioinformatics).

Registration to the meeting is free, but mandatory. Please use the link below to register. If you wish to present your work, please submit an abstract in the registration form.

Some budget will be available for supporting the travel expenses of young speakers. Please indicate whether you are asking for such a travel grant when registering.
