BREW 2017

NORBIS is excited to host the next Bioinformatics Research and Education Workshop, which will take place in Bergen June 1-2, 2017!

About BREW

Brew is a workshop for PhD students in bioinformatics, and aims to give its students an introduction to scientific conferences, including submission, peer review and presentation of scientific papers. All participants must submit a paper and take part in reviewing papers from other participants in order to attend the workshop. After the review deadline, students have a chance to make alterations to their paper and deliver a final version. All participants will present their paper at the conference-style meeting.

BREW is held in a round-robin fashion each year at the participating PhD programs (Bergen, Berlin, Bielefeld, Hinxton, Helsinki, Tartu). The format is described in the following article:
