SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES



Hosted by the International Society for Computational Biology and the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), the Next Generation Sequencing Conference 2018 (NGS 2018) is a dedicated meeting on cutting-­-edge approaches to the processing and analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data, with a focus on structural variation and population genomics.

Topics to include:

  • State of the art technologies, and technologies under development
  • Novel software and algorithms
  • Novel applications of NGS technologies in genomics and biology
  • Post genome sequencing analysis, including RNA analysis, transcription factor binding sites profiling, histone modifications, nucleosome positioning, copy number variation, genotyping, RNA structure, dynamics of transcription and translation, etc.
  • Research breakthroughs based on exhaustive applications of NGS.
  • Clinical and translational applications
  • Applications to agriculture and biotechnology
  • Societal implications: forensic law, sociology research, history, etc.
  • Economical impacts


The conference will also aim to encompass the associated computational challenges:

  • Novel algorithms, methods and pipelines
  • Comparative benchmarks of methods
  • Hardware developments specific to NGS
  • High performance computing in NGS
  • Computation in portable NGS devices, micro- and nano-NGS devices
  • Computation during data acquisition


The meeting will draw together researchers from diverse backgrounds who develop and apply novel tools to sequencing data.  Topics covered will include, but are not limited to, genome assembly, variant characterization and analysis, gene expression, population history, disease, and more!

The conference program will be a combination of keynote talks from renown scientists with research focusing on structural variation and population genomics, a selection of thought-provoking submitted abstract talks, technology and applications talks, as well as posters.

On average, most of attendees are from Europe with remaining attendees from the United States, Canada, Asia, Africa, & Australia. Total attendees expected in 2018: 200
