BioExcel is proud to support this event, which will take place from October 22-24. We will being giving a talk at the event.

The Eighteenth NETTAB Workshop is organised in collaboration with ELIXIR Nodes of the UK and Italy. The main focus will be on FAIR principles in bioinformatics, a challenging topic that we hope will attract many researchers from all over the world, including but not limited to, Bioinformaticians, Biologists, Computer Scientists, and others working or interested in the above research scope.

The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship, published in 2016, has sparked worldwide interest across the biology community: from grassroots to policymakers, and from data providers to publishers.

Now is the perfect time to discuss on these topics and related actions, and to move on from FAIR principles to FAIR practice. All interested actors, with different levels of involvement and expertise, are invited to join forces and promote a common effort towards the implementation of a FAIR environment. The workshop will provide an excellent environment and a range of opportunities to present and discuss methods, theoretical approaches, algorithms, tools, platforms, practical applications and experiences of FAIR in Bioinformatics.
