The Bosc Pear

The Bioinformatics Open Source Conference is held annually as a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the ISCB's annual ISMB conference). BOSC promotes and facilitates the open source development of bioinformatics tools and open science. The aims of the conferences are to:

  1. Provide developers with a forum for displaying the results of their development efforts to the wider research community;
  2. Provide a focused environment for developers and users to interact and share ideas about software development, open science, and practical techniques in bioinformatics;
  3. Promote Open Science, with its focus on sharing data and tools, transparency, reproducibility, and data provenance
  4. Inform the research community of important developments occurring within the Open Source Bioinformatics Developer community.

BOSC meetings to date:

In recent years the BOSC meetings have been preceded by a two day Codefest, an informal developer meeting.
