Events and Conferences

The International Biocuration Conference is a unique event for curators and developers of biological databases to discuss their work, promote collaborations, and foster a sense of community in this very active and growing area of research.

We aim to hold the International Biocuration conference in North/South America, Australia/Asia or Europe on a rotating basis. The call for bids for the 2026 conference in Europe is now open. This call will remain open until July 31, 2024. Click for proposal details. For further inquires about hosting the International Biocuration conference, please email us.

Since 2012 DATABASE, the Journal of Biological Databases and Curation, has been publishing a yearly Biocuration Virtual Issue with peer-reviewed works from our members attending the Biocuration conference. An example of a DATABASE Biocuration conference report. Read previous articles from past Biocuration conferences here. To find out more about submitting conference articles to DATABASE visit the forthcoming events page.

The ISB would also like to promote conferences relevant to biocuration, please please email us any events you would like us to include on our forthcoming events page.
