Event hubs

Event Hubs

AMSI BioInfoSummer 2021 will be held online and across five state-based event hubs from 29 November – 2 December (COVID-19 restrictions dependent).

Registrants are strongly encouraged to join with others by participating from their state-based hub, however, full virtual participation is also available. Should lockdown restrictions prevent any of our event hubs from going ahead all registrants from that location will revert to online participation.
