Probabilistic modeling in Genomics

18 - 20 September 2017, Aarhus University

Welcome to ProbGen17

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 3rd Probabilistic Modeling in Genomics Conference (ProbGen17), to be held at Aarhus University, Denmark, from 18-20 Sept 2017.

The conference will cover probabilistic models, algorithms, and statistical methods across a broad range of applications in genetics and genomics. We invite abstract submissions on a range of topics including Population Genetics, Functional Genomics, Systems and Structural Biology, Methods for Genome-wide Association Studies, Causal inference in genetic studies, Assembly and Variant Identification, Phylogenetics, Natural Selection and Quantitative Genetics.

Alongside invited speakers, oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts. We particularly encourage abstract submissions from junior investigators, including postdoctoral fellows and graduate students.

Probgen was held previously in Cold Spring Harbor (2015), and Oxford (2016). It evolved from the success of previous similarly-themed workshops held at the HHMI Janelia Farm Research Campus (2013) and Merton College, Oxford (2014).

The conference talks and poster sessions will be held at the new Moesgaard Museum for archaeology and ethnography (MOMU), situated just 5 km out of Aarhus. Aarhus is most easily accessible from either Aarhus (AAR) or Billund (BLL) Airport that serves most major European cities.

The meeting will begin with an informal mixer on the evening of Sunday 17 September 2017 at Hotel Comwell in central Aarhus. Talks will take place from Monday 18 September until lunchtime on Wednesday 20 September.

The early bird registration and abstract submission deadline is June 23rd, 2017.
