1ST COMPUTATIONAL LIFE SCIENCES DAY
October 21, 2015, Messe Congress Graz
In January 2014 the department of “Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering” at TU Graz was born: Four biomedical institutes joined forces with the Faculty of Computer Science in order to push science within the Computational Life Sciences forward and to evolve “CONVERGENCE” as THE new research model across disciplines.
We now invite researchers and practitioners interested in Computational Life Sciences with diverse backgrounds (such as biology and other natural sciences, computer science, medicine, and engineering) to join us at our 1st Computational Life Sciences Day in Graz. We will present inspiring talks by renowned international Computational Life Sciences researchers, show highlights of award-winning faculty members, and provide an opportunity to discuss, reflect, and enjoy.
Be part of the nation-wide community of Computational Life Sciences and help us to develop convergence at a scale that will be truly transformative.
