Invited seminars

The Computational Biology Institute (IBC) regularly hosts talks by distinguished researchers from all over the world.

In these meetings, the invited scientists present their work, following the standard format of scientific seminars, but more in depth than plenary sessions (intended for a very broad audience). They are in French or English, as appropriate, and are held on a monthly basis at the IBC (see map).

Feel free to advertise widely the announcement of these plenary sessions.
