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.

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. Find out more about submissions here.

We aim to hold the ISB conference in North/South America, Australia/Asia or Europe on a rotating basis. A call for bids for the 2022 conference in Europe will be announced in 2020. For further inquires about hosting the ISB conference, please email us.

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