6th de.NBI Cloud User Meeting 2023 - Registration Open

02.10.2023 - 18:00


For more than 5 years the de.NBI Cloud has provided free of charge computing resources to the life sciences community in Germany. Scientists involved in various research topics, such as metagenomics, medical imaging, epigenetics, and plant biology benefit from the opportunities provided by the de.NBI Cloud.

With our annual user meeting we would like to highlight topics of interest for our growing community.

We provide the opportunity for our current users to learn more about best practices in cloud computing and present newcomers and possible future users the capabilities provided by the de.NBI Cloud that could help accelerate their research in future projects. Talks and workshops will be given covering topics in cloud computing, such as container orchestration using Kubernetes, the application of infrastructure as code technologies but also bioinformatics related workshops such as an introduction to Bioconda and BioContainers.

The de.NBI Cloud User Meeting fosters the interaction with our growing community. We value your input on the specific needs of the scientific life sciences community, which helps us to shape the future of the de.NBI Cloud according to specific use cases.

This year, we are again organizing the de.NBI Cloud user meeting as an in-person event at the DJH Youth Hostel in Bielefeld, Germany from November 27th - 29th, 2023.

Participation is free of charge, but attendees are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements.

The scope of this meeting includes:

  • Talks of experienced users in different research areas
  • Workshops for both new and experienced users
  • Opportunities to engage with experts on various cloud computing topics
  • The possibility to present your own project or project idea and receive feedback from other users and cloud experts
  • Social events designed to foster a sense of community

We are looking forward to welcoming interested researchers from many different bioinformatics and life-science research areas to learn more about cloud computing and the de.NBI Cloud.
