BOSC 2023 logoThe SSI is delighted to announce that we are silver sponsors of BOSC 2023, the 24th annual Bioinformatics Open Source Conference. This year's edition will take place July 24-25 as part of ISMB/ECCB 2023 in Lyon, France and online. It will include keynote talks delivered by Sara El-Gebali (SciLifeLab-DataCentre-Sweden) and Joseph M. Yracheta (Native BioData Consortium) and a panel discussion about Open and Ethical Data Sharing.

Those interested in contributing have until Thursday 18 May to submit abstracts for consideration as a poster.

BOSC is usually preceded or followed by what is now called CollaborationFest (CoFest for short), a free two-day community development session. This is an opportunity for anyone interested in open science, biology and programming to meet, talk and work collaboratively. The 2023 CoFest, which will precede ISMB/ECCB 2023, will take place July 22-23 and will be hybrid (online + in person at ENS Lyon, France). Please add yourself to this spreadsheet if you would like to participate, and join the #cofest channel in the BOSC Slack.

The Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) has been held annually since 2000. It is organized by the Open Bioinformatics Foundation (OBF), a non-profit group dedicated to promoting the practice and philosophy of open source software development and open science within the biological research community.

Since its inception in 2000, BOSC has provided a forum for developers and users to interact and share research results and ideas in open source bioinformatics. BOSC’s broad spectrum of topics includes practical techniques for solving bioinformatics problems; software development practices; standards and ontologies; approaches that promote open science and sharing of data, results and software; and ways to grow open source communities while promoting diversity within them.
