Due to the developing COVID-19 situation, the organisers of the Brisbane-based Winter School in Mathematical and Computational Biology 2020 have made the difficult decision to cancel the event this year.
The health of attendees, who would have arrived from around Australia, and that of the national and international speakers, was considered to be far more important than the event going ahead.
This year’s Winter School was due to be held at The University of Queensland from 6–10 July.
The Winter School is designed to introduce bioinformatics, mathematical and computational biology to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and others working in the fields of biology, mathematics, statistics, computer science, information technology, complex systems analysis, and chemical and medical sciences and engineering.
The Winter School will return next year to UQ with an exciting program.
“We had already put together a fantastic set of speakers for the 2020 Winter School, and we’re planning to carry this lineup over to the 2021 Winter School to be held 5–9 July 2021. Save the date!” said Winter School organiser Dr Nick Hamilton, who is also a QCIF eResearch Analyst based at UQ.
