The Next NGS Challenge Conference, a joint event of the EU COST Action SeqAhead, the EMBnet, the International Society of Computational Biology (ISCB) and the 7FP Project STATegra, is dedicated to the presentation of innovative computational approaches to the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data.

The conference will be held in Valencia, Spain, on May 14-16, 2013.

The Conference will consist of keynote lectures, oral presentations and lively poster sessions.  The  organizers invite submissions that describe novel applications of NGS, as well as bioinformatic algorithms for data processing and analysis.  Submissions dealing with efficient solutions to the management and storage of these large datasets are also welcomed.

The Conference will be preceded by an EMBnet Workshop on data analysis.

We are proud to announce the participation of the following keynote speakers:
