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 and introductions to bioinformatics workflow systems.

The de.NBI Cloud User Meeting supports the interaction with our growing community. Thus, we would like to hear from you the needs of the scientific life sciences community allowing us to shape the future of the de.NBI Cloud according to specific use cases.

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

Participation is free of charge, but participants will need to arrange for their own travel and accomodation.

The scope of this meeting includes:

  • Talks of experienced users in different research areas
  • Workshops for new and already experienced users
  • Opportunities to talk to experts on various cloud computing topics
  • Possibility to present your own project or project idea and receive feedback from other users and cloud experts
  • Social events to bring the community together

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.
