Nordic CompBio Talks

We aim to highlight latest research happening across the Nordics. We believe it is important and rewarding for all, students and junior as well as senior computational biologists, to discuss and understand suitability of novel and old computational methods. In addition to research talks, we welcome submissions for workshop/training on multiple tools, as well as general talks on computer science.

Nordic Computational Biology (NordicCompBio) Talks aims to include seminars and workshops that are especially designed with a focus on method development. We encourage speakers to narrow down a content emphasizing on experimental setup of their research/work. 

Speakers and workshop organisers are researchers, doctoral researchers, and students based in Nordic countries. The intended audience is people with a passion for computational biology that in large have a relevant education** for understanding biology, informatics, or related areas. This includes people who aim to be or work as a bioinformatician, data scientist, software developer, and so on as well as people in life sciences and medical fields such as research engineer and biomedical analyst.

Nordic Computational Biology Talks is a collaboration between Nordic RSGs. We follow Nordic CompBio code of conduct for our events.

**No prerequisite knowledge is formally required to attend Nordic CompBio events.
