Registration for workshops and tutorials

The GCB 2018 will host 5 workshops and tutorials in parallel sessions on Sep 25, the day before we start the main conference. The attendance of these workshops and tutorials is already included in the GCB conference fee. However, we will share the costs for food and drinks during September 25, and will therefore collect 15 EUR from each participant at the conference desk during registration.

In order to help us with the logistics for workshops and tutorials on September 25, please update your registration (individual mails were sent to each registered participant). If you are not yet registered for GCB, please use the registration page to register.

Poster submissions are still open (until Aug 15)

Poster submissions are managed through the online conference management system "EasyChair". This system gives you, the author, complete control over your submission. You upload your abstract and check on the review status of your submission. After logging in to the EasyChair website for GCB 2018, click on the “New Submission” link located in the top-left corner of the menu bar to submit a new abstract.
