Call for bid for the organisation of VPH2016

The VPH Institute has opened the call for bids to host the VPH2016 conference. Interested organisations should submit their bid by January 15th, 2014.

The International Conference on the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) is a conference series held biennially on even years, whose objective is to provide a forum for the discussion and the dissemination of the broad field of in silico medicine. The first issue was in 2010 in Brussels, followed by a second in 2012 in London and the forthcoming 2014 in Trondheim (Norway). 

The conference is intended also as an opportunity for researchers from all over the world to establish collaborations regardless of geopolitical barriers, identifying areas of cooperation, and promoting the development of partnerships for new research and educational initiatives in the area of in silicomedicine. 

Each conference is independently organised by a local organising institution selected through a public bid by the Board of Directors of the VPH Institute. The organising institution takes full responsibility of all the overall management of the event, while the VPH Institute ensures that the scientific and organisation standards of the conference are respected.
