Sunday, January 7th, 2018

VIZBI 2018, the 9th international meeting on ‘Visualizing Biological Data’, will take place March 28-30 at the Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard in Cambridge MA.

VIZBI 2018 features keynotes from Kim GoodwinDrew Berry, and Anders Ynnerman, as well as talks from 18 world-leading researchers showcasing visualizations transforming how life scientists view data, and driving key advances in molecular biology, systems biology, biomedical science, and ecology.

The meeting aims to advance data visualization in the life sciences and brings together a diverse community, including bioinformaticians, data scientists, computer scientists, and experimentalists, as well as medical illustrators, graphic designers, and graphic artists.

All participants have the opportunity to present a poster and a lightning talk describing their work. Note that this year we are not able to offer a virtual participation option.

Data Visualization Masterclass. One day prior to the meeting (March 27), there will also be full-day training event teaching general principles and practices for turning data into insightful visualisations. Further details will be announced shortly.

Sponsorship. If you are interested in promoting your organization or professional society, a range of sponsorship options are also available.

As with previous meetings, VIZBI 2018 promises to be an exciting event that will again help raise the standard of data visualization in the life sciences. We hope very much you can join us!
