iEvoBio: Informatics for Phyogenetics, Evolution, and Biodiversity Conference

Informatics for Phylogenetics, Evolution and Biodiversity


About iEvoBio

iEvoBio is a forum bringing together biologists working in evolution, systematics, and biodiversity, with software developers, and mathematicians. The goal of iEvoBio is both to catalyse the development of new tools, and to increase awareness of the possibilities offered by existing technologies (ranging from standards and reusable toolkits to mega-scale data analysis to rich visualization).

Current and past conferences

The 2017 conference is being held in Portland, OR. The meeting will occur on Friday, June 23, the day before contributed talks to Evolution begin, with the Software Bazaar concurrent with the first poster session. See the link below for more information.


iEvoBio is inspired by a similarly scoped conference for the domain of genome informatics, the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC). BOSC has been running annually since 2000 in association with the premier annual computational biology conference (ISMB), and continues to be highly successful in its mission.
