VPH2020 call for bid

The Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) international conference 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 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 silico medicine.

The issues organised so far are:

  • VPH2010 – Brussels
  • VPH2012 – London
  • VPH2014 – Trondheim (Norway)
  • VPH2016 – Amsterdam

The forthcoming VPH2018 will take place in Zaragoza (Spain) on 5-7 Sept 2018.

Each conference is independently organised by a local organising institution selected through a public bid by the Board of Directors of the VPH Institute.
