THE FIRST ROUND ANNOUNCEMENT
At this special movement when the city of Wuhan has lifted its lockdown, the people of Wuhan open new chapter in their lives, and China is reaching the last stretch in the hard fought campaign against COVID-19, it is with great pleasure and confidence, that the Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Genomics (ICG) is proud to announce that the 15th Annual ICG (ICG-15) will be held from October 25 to 31, 2020 in Wuhan, China.
We cordially invite you, our colleagues in the international bioscientific community and biotech industry, to participate in this unique event and to share the opportunity to explore the initial efforts that contains, attacks and defeats the COVID-19.
Since 2006, with the participation and support of the world’s most prominent and creative genomic professionals, the ICG has matured into a powerful gathering, a solid platform to explore the leading edge of the biosciences while stimulating collaborations that take no heed of borders or silos and fostering partnerships that lead to significant breakthroughs. Under the theme: "Omics for All", ICG-15 will continue to contribute to the goal of building a community of shared future for humankind.
In the late fall, the city of Wuhan, having shed the vestiges of COVID-19 attack, will offer a splendid and meaningful environment, a wonderful climate and a warm reception. We are looking forward to sharing this with you as well as the unprecedented opportunity to explore COVID-19 and the future of genomics.
