The Eleventh International Workshop on Bio-Design Automation (IWBDA) will bring together researchers from the synthetic biology, systems biology, and design automation communities to discuss concepts, methodologies and software tools for the computational analysis and synthesis of biological systems.
The field of synthetic biology, still in its early stages, has largely been driven by experimental expertise, and much of its success can be attributed to the skill of the researchers in specific domains of biology. There has been a concerted effort to assemble repositories of standardized components; however, creating and integrating synthetic components remains an ad hoc process. Inspired by these challenges, the field has seen a proliferation of efforts to create computer-aided design tools addressing synthetic biology's specific design needs, many drawing on prior expertise from the electronic design automation (EDA) community.
The IWBDA offers a forum for cross-disciplinary discussion, with the aim of seeding and fostering collaboration between the biological and the design automation research communities.
IWBDA is organized by the non-profit Bio-Design Automation Consortium (BDAC). BDAC is an officially recognized 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.
Topics of interest include:
IWBDA will take place in Cambridge, England.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Those that are selected for oral and poster presentations will distributed to workshop participants and posted on the workshop website.
Date: Monday, July 8th 2019
Time: 09:00 - 18:30
Prior to IWBDA, there will be a one-day SBOL workshop on July 8th, 2019 at Cambridge University, UK. The workshop is aimed for both for software developers and SBOL users, and will include demos and tutorials. Although there is no registration fee for the SBOL workshop, participants should still register. More details and registration link to follow shortly.

The International Workshop on Bio-Design Automation will not tolerate harassment of workshop participants. Examples of such prohibited practices would include gossiping, slurs, offensive or derogatory comments, or other verbal or physical conduct. This includes sexual harassment as defined as "unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature" not only when the conduct is made as a condition of workshop participation ("quid pro quo" harassment), but when the conduct creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive workshop environment. IWBDA participants who feel they are being harassed by participants, organizers, or support staff should make it clear to the individual(s) that such behavior is offensive and unwelcome. Any participant who believes he or she has been subjected to harassing conduct can report the matter to the IWBDA organizing committee or the Bio-Design Automation Consortium (BDAC) executive committee.
