International Conference on Genome Informatics (GIW)

International Conference on Genome Informatics (GIW)

International Conference on Genome Informatics (GIW, former Genome Informatics Workshop) is the longest running international bioinformatics conference, which originated in Japan. GIW 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. GIW was traditionally held in Japan, while GIW changed to an international conference in 1993. 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 became an official meeting of Association of Asian Societies for Bioinformatics (AASBi) from 2007.
