History of GIW
Genome Informatics Workshop (GIW) is the longest running international bioinformatics conference, which has provided unique opportunities that bridge theory and experiments, academia and industry, and East and West. The scope includes all work that is ultimately devoted to the computational understanding of biological systems on a molecular basis and the aims are to present recent results of both theoretical and practical research, to show new applications, to demonstrate systems, and to indicate directions of future research.
The First GIW was held at Kikai Shinko Kaikan, Tokyo during December 3-4, 1990 as an open workshop just before the Japanese Human Genome Project started in 1991. Thus it has a history of 24 years. Since 1993, GIW changed to an international conference. GIW 2000 had more than 500 participants and it was no longer a “workshop”. From 2001, the first year of 21st Century, the name of this annual meeting was changed to “International Conference on Genome Informatics” while keeping GIW as its acronym because the name GIW was established in the community.
GIW was traditionally held in Japan. In 2007, it was the first time that GIW was held outside of Japan. The National University of Singapore was honoured to host GIW 2007. We are again delighted to give you a warm welcome to Singapore in GIW2013!
