The Next NGS Challenge Conference is a joint event of the EU COST Action SeqAhead, the EMBnet, the International Society of Computational Biology ISCB and the 7FP Project STATegra that aims to become a dedicated meeting on cutting-edge Next Generation Sequencing applications, presenting the most innovative bioinformatics approaches in NGS data analysis.

The Conference will consist of keynote lectures, contributed oral presentations and lively afternoon Poster sessions. The organizers are now accepting submissions on novel NGS applications, algorithms for NGS date processing and integration, and effective solutions for the management of massive sequence data.

Deadline for registration is the 15th of April. Abstract submission deadline is the 15th of February. 

We are proud to announce the participation of the following Keynote speakers:
