Welcome to AYRCOB 2015

Dear friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are honored to welcome you to the 8th Asian Young Researchers Conference on Computational and Omics Biology (AYRCOB2015). We are pleased to host our conference at National Chiao Tung University, HsinChu, Taiwan with talented young researchers from all over the world.

AYRCOB began as a joint conference between young researchers from Japan and Taiwan in 2007. Since the first conference, AYRCOB has invited more young researchers across Asia. With this outstanding effort, AYRCOB has expanded to 5 organizing countries (China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan) that have come together to host out meaningful conference here at National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan.

This year, we are proud to collaborate with Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Conference 2015 (APBC2015), a leading conference in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology. With this collaboration, we were able to receive many excellent abstract submissions. We have received 24 submissions from 10 countries for oral submission, of which we selected and provided full travel support to 10 presenters. In addition, 30 researchers will share their fascinating research in poster presentations. Moreover, 7 keynote speakers will share their outstanding research and experience for all participants.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to thank our major sponsors, “National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan”, “Ministry of Science and Technology Research Promotion Center for Life Sciences, Taiwan”,  “Ministry of Science and Technology, Taiwan”, “Bureau of Foreign Trade, Taiwan”, “Ministry of Education, Taiwan”, “Center for Quantitative Biology, Peking University, China”, “Genomics, Proteomics & Bioinformatics, Beijing Institute of Genomics, China”, “iServer Co., Ltd, Taiwan”, “Joinet Technology Corporation, Taiwan” for their support.

We look forward to welcoming you to Taiwan, Formosa – the beautiful island. We hope that our conference will be beneficial, enjoyable and inspiring to all participants. Moreover, we hope this conference to be a good opportunity for those who seek for new friends and collaborations.
