CSHA has reached the difficult decision to postpone all upcoming events planned at least through the end of June because of the coronavirus outbreak. We hope to reschedule these meetings and courses in the coming months. Please enquire about cancellation reimbursement, and bear with us as our offices are currently closed.

Thank you for bearing with us, 
The Cold Spring Harbor Asia Team

The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session covering the latest findings across many topics in Computational Biology. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions. 

Major Topics:

1. Foundations and algorithms

2. Genome organization

3. Transcr1ptional and epigenetic regulation

4. RNA and translational regulation

5. Cell kinetics and developmental dynamics

6. Cancer and computational immunology

7. Genomic variation, disease and evolution

8. Single cell analysis

Invited Speakers:

We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. The abstracts must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers. Status (fellow's talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers. 

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. A certain number of presentations by graduate students and postdocs in this conference will be selected as fellowship (USD $100-$500) awards. For more details, please visit  

We look forward to seeing you at Suzhou in June, 2020.
