The International Conference on Genome informatics GIW/ISCB-Asia 2020 (aka Genome Informatics Workshop) is the longest running international bioinformatics conference. Providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and the results in computational and statistical aspects of life sciences in general and genomics in particular. GIW/ISCB-Asia will be held at National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan for the second time, eight years after the very well received GIW 2012. This site will be updated as more details become available. As an interdisciplinary conference GIW is about joining communities.
