About the Conference
The BCATS organizing committee is proud to announce the 17th year of the symposium: Biomedical Computation at Stanford (BCATS). This year BCATS will be held on Monday, April 10th 2017 at Stanford. BCATS is a one-day scientific conference organized entirely by students highlighting current research by students and post-docs in the San Francisco bay area including Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco, UC Santa Cruz and UC Davis. Last year, BCATS presented work of over 60 different research projects to over 250 attendees from the scientific community.
Over the years, BCATS has consistently offered the biomedical computation community a place to connect and learn about state-of-the-art science. This open exchange is critical for the growth of biomedical computation research. Attendees of previous BCATS have gone on to become leading faculty in prestigious institutions and drivers of biotechnological innovation in the private sector.

BCATS 2016 Keynote Speakers
"As BCATS is a small student-run conference, it provides a unique opportunity to Bay Area students to closely interact with other researchers (academic and industry) in bio-medical informatics. Moreover the diverse student talks and posters give an indication of the ongoing research, opening doors for future collaboration. This is not possible for other large conferences like AMIA or ISMB, where a starting graduate student just ends up being overwhelmed."
– Maulik Kamdar - Former Director of BCATS
