The “Computational Modeling in Biology” Network (COMBINE) is an initiative to coordinate the development of the various community standards and formats in systems biology and related fields. COMBINE 2022 will be a workshop-style event with oral presentations, breakout sessions and tutorials. The three meeting days will include talks about the COMBINE standards and associated or related standardization efforts, presentations of tools using these standards, breakout sessions for detailed discussions as well as tutorials.

COMBINE 2022 will be an in-person meeting organised as a satellite to the ICSB 2022 meeting in Berlin.

Agenda

COMBINE Community meet-up

Two days of breakout sessions and tutorials related to COMBINE standards

Thus 6th & Fri 7th Oct, 9am-6pm at Humboldt University of Berlin, Philippstraße 13, Haus 20

All attendees can suggest breakout sessions for detailed discussions of certain aspects of one or several of the COMBINE standard(s), discussions on metadata and semantic annotations (format-specific or overarching), discussions on the application and implementations of the COMBINE standards, or any other topic relevant for the COMBINE community.

We also solicit applications to host tutorials on tools, standards or resources (or any other topic) which would be relevant for the COMBINE community (see Topics of Interest below). The link to submit suggestions for breakout sessions or tutorials is here, and the deadline is on the left.

COMBINE Forum

Single track session with invited and submitted talks

Sat 8th Oct, 8am-1pm at Humboldt University of Berlin, Philippstraße 13, Haus 20

To submit an abstract for the COMBINE Forum on Saturday October 8, please use the official ICSB abstract submission portal on EasyChair:
