ECCB 2018 will take place in the historic city of Athens in Greece. It is the main computational biology event in Europe and will welcome scientists working in a variety of disciplines, including bioinformatics, computational biology, biology, medicine, and systems biology. Participating in ECCB 2018 will be the perfect opportunity to keep pace with cutting edge research, and to network with members of ECCB community.

ELIXIR will be the main organising sponsor of the 17th ECCB. 

As part of the ELIXIR-ECCB 2018 partnership, the programme of the conference will feature a dedicated ELIXIR Application Track to showcase ELIXIR activities and services and ELIXIR Poster session.
