Outline of the Program

Each day will be subdivided into two sessions: a morning and an afternoon session. The morning session will begin by a keynote talk (45 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions), followed by 5 short talks (15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions).
The afternoon session will begin by a keynote talk, followed by up to 4 talks, followed by a poster session. We will leave enough time for discussions, collaborations and special talks dedicated to David Sankoff contribution to the field. There will also be opportunities for junior participants the to present posters. The expected the number of participants is around 50: the the organizing committee, 6 keynote speakers, 16-20 regular speakers and around 15 graduate students, postdocs and early career researchers.

This conference gathering researchers with various backgrounds working on complementary fields of comparative genomics, will be a perfect opportunity to publish a book on the most recent advances in the field, from the fundamental and empirical point of view.
