ALPHY 2012: French-Spanish meeting on Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Genomics (March 19 -21, Banyuls-sur-Mer)

 I am glad to announce ALPHY 2012, which for the first time is jointly co-organized by French and Spanish researchers. I was very glad to be invited by my French colleagues to sit at the organizing committe. I think it is a great opportunity to join two communities with ample experience in phylogenetics-related research.

ALPHY is an annual meeting, organized in France since 1995, dedicated to the field of Bioinformatics and Comparative Genomics (ALPHY = ALignments and PHYlogeny). The main goal of this meeting is to promote informal exchanges in this highly multidisciplinary field, and to encourage young scientists to present their work. The official invitation follows, plus a very tempting picture of the location.

This year, ALPHY is co-organized by Spanish and French scientists, in the nice city of Banyuls. There will be two invited speakers (Henrik Kaessmann and Jose Castresana), and the program will be open to contributions for 20’ talks.
The registration to the meeting is free, but mandatory. Please use the link (top left of this page) to register. If you wish to present your work, submit your abstract in the registration form.
Important dates:
  • Deadline for abstract submission: January 10 2012
  • Deadline for registration : February 1st 2012
Hasta pronto – A bientôt – fins aviat - see you in Banyuls!
