The Basel Computational Biology Conference (stylized as [BC]2) is a scientific meeting on the subjects of bioinformatics and computational biology. It covers a wide spectrum of disciplines, including bioinformatics, computational biology, genomics, computational structural biology, and systems biology. The conference is organized biannually by the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics in Basel, Switzerland. The next edition will take place 12–15 September 2017 at the Congress Center Basel.
