The ISCB Rocky Mountain Bioinformatics Conference series began twenty years ago as a regional conference and has grown into an international program with a spotlight on regional development in the computational biosciences. The presenters of the Rocky conference are students, and early and late career scientists representing a broad spectrum of universities, industrial enterprises, government laboratories, and medical libraries from around the world.

The Conference has much to offer and is a great place for early career researchers and students to present their work and for senior researchers to bring their lab teams and grant teams for an affordable retreat at a luxury resort!

The conference includes short "flash" presentations (10 minute talks), poster presentations and keynote presentations on current projects including significant works-in-progress involving the application of advanced computational methods to significant problems in biology or medicine.
