Student Conference on Mathematical Foundations in Bioinformatics 2021 (MatBio 2021) - 15 September 2021

Please note that this event has passed.

The students of the Algorithms and Data Analysis research group at King's College London, invite postgraduate and postdoctoral students to the Student Conference on Mathematical Foundations in Bioinformatics (MatBio).

The aim of MatBio 2021 is to further enable communication between early-stage pioneers in the field and established academics.

We are now inviting students to submit abstracts to be considered for 20-minute oral presentations. Abstracts consist of a short summary of the work which is intended to be presented, and must be submitted by using the abstract submission form in the registration link. Suitable topics for presentation include:

  • Sequence Analysis
  • Genomic Variation and Disease
  • Haplotypes and Population Genomics
  • Protein and RNA Analysis, Structure, and Dynamics
  • Metagenomics
  • Cancer Genomics
  • Systems Biology
  • Phylogenetics
  • Biological Networks and Integrative Analysis
  • Computational Drug Discovery
  • Biological Modelling
  • Text Mining and Classification
  • Advancing Algorithms and Methods
  • Big Data in Bioinformatics

Invited Speakers

Professor Srinivas Aluru
Georgia Institute of Technology

Dr Katharina Huber
University of East Anglia (UEA)

Professor Sofia Kossida
Université de Montpellier

Dr Leena Salmela
University of Helsinki


Registration to attend the conference is free. We strongly encourage students to attend, to benefit from the excellent networking opportunities and potential for driving further research. The previous years of MatBio have been huge successes, and we intend to carry this success forward to 2021.

MatBio 2021 will take place online this year, with talks and networking events being conducted remotely via Microsoft Teams.
