The Women in Science Conference is a satellite meeting of the International Conference on Genomics (ICG-13). The Women in Science Conference is hosted by BGI and takes place the day before ICG-13. This conference is organized by Laurie Goodman, Editor-in-Chief of the international journal GigaScience.
The Women in Science Conference provides an international forum that brings together top female researchers in big-data science. This is a scientific conference with topics spanning a broad range of fields in the life sciences, including evolution, 'omics', cancer, complex diseases, reproductive health, technology, and informatics. In addition to the exploration and sharing of scientific advances, this venue also provides an opportunity for young women researchers to interact with senior women in science, gain mentors, discuss issues that women may face when working in the sciences, and learn about ways the senior researchers dealt with these problems.
This conference is open to women researchers only.
