Workshops and Tutorials

This years German Conference on Bioinformatics will host 5 workshops and tutorials in parallel sessions on September 25, the day before we start the main conference. Please find more information about these events in the list below on this page.
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 are sent to each registered participant). If you are not yet registered for GCB, please use the registration page to register. The registration form includes the selection of workshop or tutorial. The registration process is handled by the event management team of the university of Vienna. For further information or if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us: gcb2018.registration@univie.ac.at.

Mixed Integer Linear Programming and its applications in bioinformatics

Time: 
25 September 2018 09:00-18:00
Location: 
HS03
Summary: 
Mixed Integer Linear Programming is a versatile tool from Discrete Optimization. It is all about solving so-called Mixed Linear Integer Programs (MILP). Vast numbers of algorithmic problems from all kinds of application areas can be modeled as MILPs.

ÄBC2: 3rd Annual European Bioinformatics Core Community Workshop

Time: 
25 September 2018 09:00-18:00
Location: 
HS04
Summary: 
The number of bioinformatics core units in industrial and academic research environments is growing rapidly. This workshop provides a communication and exchange platform for scientific and service aspects of bioinformatics core units in Europe.

Getting Started with the de.NBI-Cloud

Time: 
25 September 2018 09:00-18:00
Location: 
W92
Summary: 
The need for high-throughput data analysis has grown tremendously since the introduction of next- generation sequencing (NGS) platforms. The massive amount of data produced creates a new class of resource barriers to be overcome including limited bandwidth, storage volume and compute power.

Label-free quantification with OpenMS

Time: 
25 September 2018 09:00-18:00
Location: 
HS06
Summary: 
Computational mass spectrometry provides important tools and bioinformatic solutions for the analysis of proteomics and metabolomics data. Non-targeted methods are ideal for unbiased discovery studies and scale well for large-scale studies (e.g., clinical proteomics/metabolomics).

SeqAn3 – a modern C++ library for efficient sequence analysis.

Time: 
25 September 2018 09:00-18:00
Location: 
HS07
Summary: 
Technological advances in sequencing and computer science have made it possible to generate enormous volumes of data in continuously decreasing time intervals, demanding highly efficient and fast algorithms as well as supporting data structures for their analysis.
