Annual national conference


The 8th and last Annual NORBIS Conference will be arranged at Rosendal Fjordhotel located in Hardanger, the 24-28 October 2022! We plan for a conference with keynote speakers, student talks, poster sessions and lots of socializing with good discussions. Boat transport from Bergen to Rosendal will be arranged by us. 


Hope to see you there!




Student talks and posters

We invite master students, PhD students and post-docs to present their research project during the annual meeting. This is a great opportunity to get feedback from fellow students and group leaders within bioinformatics, biostatistics and systems biology. The talks will be of a duration of 12minutes with additional 3 minutes time for questions and discussion. We will arrange a feedback committee for each session. As we have a limited number of sessions available for student talks during the meeting, we will select those who are invited to give a talk and expect that the rest will bring a poster instead. We will have one poster presentation and we like all poster presenters to give a short 1 min flash talk presenting your poster. How you like to present it, is up to you.


The conference is open for everyone. The conference is planned to be on site and NORBIS covers travel and accommodation for the members joining the conference.


About the conference

The NORBIS school organizes an annual conference for all members. The conference aims at bringing together students and researchers, fostering collaboration between groups. The participants will learn about each others’ research, discuss science, be inspired by keynotes from leading researchers, and improve their scientific network. In particular the meeting gives an opportunity for the students to work on their presentation skills as each student gets feedback on the presentation from an appointed feedback committee.
