COMBINE 2019, the 10th Computational Modeling in Biology Network Forum

15 - 19 July 2019, Heidelberg (Germany)
hosted by the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS)

The "Computational Modeling in Biology" Network (COMBINE) is an initiative to coordinate the development of the various community standards and formats in the life sciences, with special focus on systems biology, systems medicine, synthetic biology and related fields. COMBINE 2019 will be a workshop-style event with contributed and invited talks in the morning sessions and interactive parallel breakout sessions on specific topics in the afternoons, as well as poster sessions. The first day (July 15th) will be a scientific colloquium day with keynote lectures and invited talks from renowned speakers, as well as lightning talks selected from the submitted poster abstracts. Contributed talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts and some authors will be invited to submit a full paper manuscript for a special issue of the Journal of Integrative Bioinformatics (JIB) on specifications of standards in systems and synthetic biology.
