2024 Conference

Launched in 2022, BioInference aims to bring together researchers from across statistics and mathematical modelling who work with biological systems, and from all career stages, to foster discussions between the two communities and to prompt collaborations. We are pleased to announce that the next BioInference conference will take place at the University of Warwick on 5th-7th June 2024.

The two-day conference will combine contributed talks and poster sessions. We now invite abstracts for oral/poster presentations on work either relating to statistical methods development (so long as those methods are applicable to biological systems) or on the application of statistical methods to solve biological problems. All presentations will be in-person. Abstracts can be submitted via a Google form (forms.gle/SBawnWD3k8iSS1Vt6) and the deadline is on the 31st January 2024.

The conference will combine a main two-day programme on the 6th and 7th June 2024 (registration fee: £70) and a data-driven meeting preceding it on the 5th June (free of charge, but limited places are available and you must be registered for the main conference). The following are confirmed as invited speakers for this conference:

Data-driven meeting: problems and methodologies

This year, we are also running an optional event on the 5th June at Warwick before the main conference starts. This aims to bring together mathematicians, statisticians and those who possess or generate datasets and would like to analyse them/answer some open questions. These may include biologists, clinicians etc in academia and industry. The idea of this meeting is to think about potential solutions to these data-based problems, gathering interest for possible collaborations between individuals across disciplines, institutions and career stages. The day would consist of a range of presentations by the experimental/business partners in the morning, and focus/discussion groups in the afternoon, aiming to start formulating an action plan to tackle the open challenges. The cost of attending day one is £30 in addition to the registration fee for the main conference.


The conference organisation committee for 2024 is: Enrico Bibbona (Politecnico di Torino); Ioana Bouros (Oxford); Julia Brettschneider (Warwick); Raiha Browning (Warwick); Fergus Cooper (Oxford); Marina Evangelou (Imperial College London); Aden Forrow (Maine); Constandina Koki (Warwick); Ben Lambert (Oxford); Chon Lok Lei (Macau); Massimiliano Tamborrino (Warwick); Tom Thorne (Surrey); Yongchao Huang (Aberdeen).
