The AEBC2 has been established in 2016. Its workshop is intended as a yearly meeting of European bioinformatics core facilities, covering all aspects scientific and operative.

Next AEBC2 Event

This year our workshop will be happening at Personalized Health Technologies 2024 on 26th of August in Zurich, Switzerland.

Call for Abstracts

Submit your abstract for a contributed talk by sending e-mail to by 30th of June 2024.

Abstract towards contributed talks within the scope of the workshop goals are welcome. Selection will be done by the AEBC2 organization committee.


Registration for PHT 2024 has opened!

AEBC2 will be available as a workshop for all participants of PHT 2024 at an additional fee of CHF 40, including coffee breaks and lunch.


The keynote presentation will be given by Martin Fergie, PhD of the University of Manchester. He is a machine learning and computer vision researcher in the Division of Informatics, Imaging and Data Sciences. His research interests are focussed on using machine learning models to predict disease outcomes from medical imaging data. Key projects include: predicting breast cancer risk from screening mammograms; predicting clinical outcomes for cancer using multiplex immunofluorescence tissue imaging.

Martin Fergie

The program will be extended continously.
