Plenary sessions

The Computational Biology Institute (IBC) organizes scientific conferences open to the entire scientific community of Montpellier.

These conferences are conceived as a meeting point for the multidisciplinary exchange of ideas at the interface between biology, health, agriculture, environment, computer science, mathematics and physics. They aim to regularly cover themes encountered in the five axes of the Institute through presentation of a particular question or research subject.

The talks are intended for a broad and multidisciplinary audience.They are in French or English, as appropriate, and are held on a monthly basis at the IBC (see map) on Friday afternoons from 14h to 15h30, including time for discussion, which may extend over a coffee in a friendly atmosphere.

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