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 2016 conference is being held in Austin, TX. Rather than two full days in a separate room, the format iEvoBio presentations are being more closely integrated with Evolution. The lightning talks will be a concurrent session, and the software bazaar will be held in the same room as the final Evolution poster session. The second day of iEvoBio will be unconference style - dicussions and workshops, driven by participants. 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.
