About the ConferenceiEvoBio aims to be a forum bringing together biologists working in evolution, systematics, and biodiversity, with software developers, and mathematicians, both to catalyse the development of new tools, and to increase awareness of the possibilities offered by existing technologies (ranging from standards and reusable toolkits to mega-scale data analysis to rich visualization). The meeting extends over two full days and will feature traditional elements, including a keynote presentation at the beginning of each day and contributed talks, as well as more dynamic and interactive elements, including a challenge, lightning talk-style sessions, a software bazaar, and Birds-of-a-Feather gatherings.
iEvoBio is being held jointly with the Evolution Meetings as a satellite conference, for the first time in 2010 in Portland, OR. In 2010, iEvoBio overlaps with the last day of the Evolution Meetings and extends one day longer. The satellite conference is expected to become a self-sustained annual event that remains affiliated with the Evolution Meetings.
