Visualizing Biological Data (VIZBI 2017)

VIZBI is the premier international meeting on Visualizing Biological Data - and in 2017 the conference comes to Australia for the first time. In this 3-day tour de force, 21 world-leading researchers present visualizations transforming how life scientists understand data, and driving key advances in molecular biology, systems biology, biomedical science, and ecology. 

Hear keynotes from Daniel KeimTamara Munzner, and Drew Berry. Meet the diverse community driving creative, visual approaches to daunting, complex challenges in life science research. The VIZBI community includes bioinformaticians, data scientists, computer scientists, and experimentalists, as well as medical illustrators, graphic designers, and graphic artists.

All participants will have the opportunity to present a poster and lightning talk describing their own work. 

Prior to the meeting (June 13), there will be half-day tutorials on specific visualisation tools and methods for life scientists. On the same day, there will also be a Data Visualization Masterclass covering general principles, methods, and tools for gaining insight from complex data.

The event is organized by the VIZBI lab from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and CSIRO's Data61.
