The Women in Science Conference is a satellite meeting of the International Conference on Genomics (ICG). Initiated by Laurie Goodman, Editor-in-Chief of the international journal GigaScience, the Women in Science Conferences have been held for 5 consecutive years during the ICG.
The Women in Science Conference provides an international forum that brings together top female researchers in big-data sciences. It is a scientific conference with topics spanning a broad range of fields in life sciences, including evolution, omics, cancer, complex diseases, reproductive health, technology and bioinformatics. In addition to the exploration and sharing of scientific advances, it also provides an opportunity for young women researchers to interact with senior women in science, gain mentors, discuss issues that women may face when working in the sciences, and learn about how senior researchers have dealt with these problems.
Following the tradition of the last 5 years, this year’s conference will be held on October 25th,2020, the first day of the ICG-15 in Wuhan City, China, under the broad theme of “OMICS and Global Health”. We extend our warmest welcome to female scientists worldwide to join us for the Women in Science Conference either in-person or online and share with us your achievements and delights in the various fields of “Omics and Global Health”.
