Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing (3rd edition)


A VIB Tools & Technologies Conference

After two successful editions (Jan 2015, Leuven and March 2017, Antwerp), VIB is proud to present the third edition of this Tools & Technologies conference.

VIB believes that the revolutionary discoveries enabled by NGS are not yet at its zenith and that the technology can go much further. During this 3rd edition VIB will bring together over 30 top scientists and technology developers form both industry and academia. They will discuss emerging tools and approaches in several sessions such as:

  • Long reads, Genome Structure and Mapping
  • Epigenomics
  • Metagenomics
  • Spatial transcriptomics
  • Population Scale and Clinical Sequencing
  • Single Cell Sequencing
  • Emerging technologies

In addition to a great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions and the conference dinner.

Also young scientists are encouraged to showcase their own work to the international research community by oral or poster presentation!

Information for poster submissions:
The format for your poster should be: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation

Registrations will open on 15 August 2018.
