Forthcoming Events

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

Post-Covid we aim to hold the International Biocuration Conferences in North/South America, Australia/Asia or Europe on a rotating basis.

25-28 April, 2023

This will be held in Padova, Italy. More information here.

16-18 May, 2023
Practical Biocuration – EMBL-EBI, Cambridge, UK

  • This three-day course, onsite at EMBL-EBI, will introduce concepts vital to biocuration, including metadata and ontologies, the role of identifiers, and extracting data from literature. Participants will have the opportunity to use skills learnt in a real-life practical biocuration exercise during a short group project.
  • Registration is first come, first served. More information here.

HUPO 2023

The HUPO 2023 Congress will take place in Busan, South Korea. We are thrilled to invite you to join one of the largest international gatherings in the field of proteomics.

The Congress program will offer both exciting education and engaging networking opportunities that we all have missed so much over the last couple of years. In addition to abstract presentations and lectures by world renowned speakers, we will be offering a variety of interactive sessions and networking options. The HUPO World Congress is an excellent opportunity for initiating or strengthening ongoing co-operations and knowledge.
