A collaboration between Cell Press, UCSF, and MIT, this conference brings together leading thinkers in technology, biology, and data science for an innovative two and a half day meeting dedicated to the burgeoning research areas where these three fields are intersecting.

The meeting will be held from October 9–11, 2016 at The Claremont Hotel Club and Spa in Berkeley, California. Fostering collaboration and cross-disciplinary discussions will be a key theme, so in addition to short scientific talks, attendees will be treated to on-stage interviews, panel discussions, and plenty of in-person social and networking opportunities with each other and the invited speakers.

Sessions will focus on technologies for multifaceted measurement of biological systems, computational data analysis and integration, understanding molecular mechanisms, perturbing and engineering biology, applications to disease and medicine, and commercial applications. Topics ranging from systems and synthetic biology, digital healthcare, cancer, genomics, immunology, biological engineering, microbiology, and cell biology will be covered, but anyone interested in interdisciplinary life sciences research and its applications should attend.
