5th AEBC2 Workshop


The fifth edition of the AEBC2 workshop will take place as a stand-alone workshop on October 15, 2021. It will be an in-person event. Sessions will be recorded and made available after the workshop on this website.

This year the event is supporting the development of women in science and, in consequence, we have only invited female speakers.

Registration & call for abstracts has started!


The 2021 workshop is focussing on three topics:

We have the pleasure to announce formidable keynote speakers:

Jessica M. Lindvall
Joint head for Short and Medium Support
National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden, SciLifeLab, Sweden
Keynote: The three pillars of NBIS (National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden): Support, Infrastructure and Training
Elisabetta Mereu
Group Leader Cellular Systems Genomics
Josep Carreras Research Institute, Spain
Keynote: Single-cell multi-omics integration: computational challenges at atlas-level data
Francesca Maria Bosisio
Founding Member of the Institute of Single Cell Omics
KU Leuven, Belgium
Keynote: Single cell multiplexed immunohistochemistry to dissect the immune landscape and cell sociology of melanoma

Registration & Agenda

Registration & abstract submission will be done through the event website at IRB Barcelona Website, where you can also find the agenda.

Register today and submit your abstract for a contributed talk in one of the three sessions.


The number of bioinformatics core units in industrial and academic research environments is growing rapidly. The AEBC2 workshop provides an exchange opportunity for scientific and service aspects of bioinformatics core facilities in Europe.

The increasing need for bioinformatics translated to clinical application as a service marks one of the challenges core facilities face today. Examples include omics-informed precision oncology, rare genetic diseases, infectious diseases, and preventive medicine. Due to embarking into new fields and the topic fast evolving, there is much uncertainty about standards, best practices, and continuous tool development, which leads to much duplication happening. This workshop aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners in these areas to exchange latest approaches, experiences, benchmark results, protocols and best practice guidelines. The workshop format will include invited and contributed talks selected from an open call for contributions, panel discussion on national bioinformatics initiatives and time for networking. See also the programme.

We address publicly used analysis infrastructures, bioinformatics service and research, as well as translational bioinformatics issues like integration of bio-banking, medical records, and the corresponding genomic information.
