Next Generation Sequencing: What’s Next?

1 June 2012, Uppsala, Sweden

In conjunction with the COST Action Training School SeqAhead is organizing a one-day workshop on “Next Generation Sequencing: What´s Next?”. The workshop will focus on future developments in NGS and point out the success the technology has in modern biology research.

The programme include 2 keynote lectures, selected oral presentations and presentations from industry and 
technology specialists such as SciLife, BGI, Pacific Biosciences, Ion Torrent, Illumina and Applied Biosystems/SOLiD.

An extensive poster session will stimulate interaction and discussions. The submitters of the five best abstracts will be reimbursed for travel and accommodation (according to COST rules) and the two best abstracts will be selected for oral presentation.

  • Abstracts submission starts: 9 March 2012
  • Abstracts submission deadline: 2 April 2012
  • Abstract acceptance/rejection notification: 16 April 2012
  • Registration for Workshop participation deadline: 30 April 2012
