About the Conference
The BCATS organizing committee is proud to announce the 18th year of the symposium: Biomedical Computation at Stanford (BCATS). This year BCATS will be held on Thursday, April 19th 2018 at Li Ka Shing Center, Stanford University . BCATS is a one-day scientific symposium highlights current interdisciplinary research by students and postdoctoral fellows at universities in the San Francisco Bay Area and is organized exclusively by Stanford graduate students on behalf of the Stanford biomedical research community. Last year, BCATS presented work of over 30 different research projects to over 200 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.
We look forward to your participation!read more >

"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."
