VIZBI 2017, the 8th international meeting on Visualizing Biological Data, will be held 14–16 June 2017 at the Charles Perkins Centre in Sydney, Australia, sponsored by The University of Sydney, The Garvan Institute of Medical Research, and Destination New South Wales.
VIZBI 2017 features keynotes from Daniel Keim, Tamara Munzner, and Drew Berry, in addition to 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 conference brings together a diverse community, including bioinformaticians, data scientists, computer scientists, and experimentalists, as well as medical illustrators, graphic designers, and graphic artists. VIZBI 2017 will be part of Vivid Sydney - a spectacular festival of light, music, and ideas - strong synergies between these events give extra incentive to make the trip to Sydney.
All participants will have the opportunity to present a poster and lightning talk describing their work. Registration is now open. If you cannot join us in Sydney, you have the option of virtual registration, which allows participation via streaming video and chat.
Prior to the meeting (June 13), there will also be half-day tutorials on specific visualization tools & methods for life scientists. If you are interested in running a tutorial, you are invited to submit a tutorial proposal. On the same day, there will also be a Data Visualization Masterclass covering general principles, methods, and tools for gaining insightful from complex data.
If you are interested in promoting your organization or professional society, a range of sponsorship options are also available.
As with previous meetings, VIZBI 2017 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!
