Dear friends,

Please see email below from Patricia Carvajal about next week's 
Bioinformatics Education Summit. We hope you will register.

Best wishes





For those who I have not met before, allow me to introduce myself. My 
name is Patricia Carvajal-López and I’m a Scientific Training Officer at 
the EMBL-EBI; with some of you I’ve been in contact with in the past, 
nice to contact you once more!!

We are getting in touch with you to invite you to the *2022 
Bioinformatics Education Summit*, which is an online working meeting to 
develop guides, papers and documents for promoting and improving 
Education and Training in Bioinformatics worldwide. The participation is 
free and open to all people working in the area of Bioinformatics 
teaching and education or who have a clear interest in contributing to it.

APBioNET <https://www.apbionet.org/>would be main-organising the 2022 
Education Summit. Education experts from all over the world, mainly 
focusing on bioinformatics, would gather virtually for 3 days to work on 
issues pertaining to bioinformatics education/training. If you are keen 
to join this working group, please register for this 3-days summit. Do 
note that this is NOT A CONFERENCE, BUT A WORKING GROUP, where you are 
expected to actively participate in discussion and writing.

The EDUCATION SUMMITwill be held from the 9h-11thMay, 2022(3 days), and 
we are strongly encouraging you to register for this event. Once again, 
this is not a Research or Scientific Conference or Congress, but rather 
a Working Meeting where we expect the participants to contributewith 
their experience and their active participation. The participation is 
freeand opento all people working in the area of Bioinformatics teaching 
and education or who have a clear interest in contributing to it.

Therefore, we are writing on behalf of the Organising Committee(Main 
organiser APBioNet with contributions from CABANA 
<https://cabana.network/>, ELIXIR <https://elixir-europe.org/>, GOBLET 
<https://www.mygoblet.org/>, H3ABioNet <https://www.h3abionet.org/>and 
ISCB <https://www.iscb.org/>) to invite you to REGISTERfor this event 
via this Google 

In the REGISTRATION FORM <https://forms.gle/6N7j61YdhjeBhyPQ7>you can 
indicate the topicsyou would like to contribute to or participate in. 
Two topics will be run in parallel each day. The themes for the three 
days are as follows:

Day 1 (May 9): Trainer guidance and resources/portal

Day 1 (May 9): Competencies and related docs/guidelines

Day 2 (May 10): Training in Low to Middle Income Countries

Day 2 (May 10): ISCB endorsement

Day 3 (May 11): Virtual to Hybrid model - the new normal

Day 3 (May 11): Train the Trainer

Colleagues from all over the world are joining the event. Thus, the 
event will take place following two different time zones. We will 
kickstart on 9 May, starting with participants in the 
Australia/Asia/Europe/Africa timezone, as the day progresses delegates 
from the Americas will be joining. This same dynamic will be followed on 
Day 2 and Day 3 of the summit. This is the link to our current schedule: 

We also need to know which is your TIME ZONE so we can accommodate the 
activities for the participation of people from many different 
countries. There will be a joint session for both Time Zones on each 
day. In all Time Zones the meeting will take 4 hours each day with a 
30min break:

Time Zone 1- ASIA/AUSTRALIA/EUROPE/AFRICA = Time zone 1 (UTC+8) - Kuala 
Lumpur, Singapore, Beijing

Time Zone 2- AMERICAS = Time zone 2 (UTC-4) - New York

We look forward to you joining us in this working meeting. If you know 
of someone who is actively working in Bioinformatics teaching and 
education or who has a clear interest in contributing to it, please 
forward this invitation to them.

If you have previously received this email and you have filled out this 
form, please dismiss this communication. Do not hesitate to contact us 
if you have any questions.

Please note that this year the Latinamerican Forum on Bioinformatics 
Educationwill not be held within the Bioinformatics Education Summit, 
instead it will take place in November at the ISCB-Latin America SoIBio 
BioNetMX Conference on Bioinformatics 2022
