  • Visualization


The JOBIM organization is led by the Société Française de Bio-Informatique (SFBI), with a partnership involving the Institut Français de Bioinformatique (IFB) and the Groupement de Recherche Bioinformatique Moléculaire (GDR BIM).


The event in 2021 is coordinated by research organizations and institutes from Ile-de-France.


Given the current health situation, the organizing committee and the program committee have decided to schedule the JOBIM 2021 conference virtually. More information will be communicated shortly.




Six thematic sessions will take place in the form of mini-symposia (details).




The annual workshop of the Jeunes Bioinformaticiens de France (JeBIF) will take place just before JOBIM (July 5).




The three previous editions were held in:

+ Montpellier (JOBIM 2020)

+ Nantes (JOBIM 2019)

+ Marseille (JOBIM 2018)
