Due to the evolving situation with Covid-19, this event has been turned into a virtual conference.
We are pleased to announce the 9th Epigenomics of Common Diseases conference and invite scientists working on experimental and computational epigenomics and epigenetics to showcase the latest developments in the field and discuss epigenomic approaches in common human diseases.
Epigenetic variation plays an important role in disease processes and provides a promising focus for disease prediction, prevention and treatment. Technological advancements in the past few years have fuelled a dramatic increase in the scale, breadth and availability of epigenomic reference maps, including populational and environmental epigenomic datasets.
The conference will cover a broad spectrum of epigenomic discoveries, opportunities and challenges in human normal biology and in disease. This year’s topics include epigenetic classifiers, chromatin regulation in disease, population studies and multi ’omics’ epigenomics. We will highlight methodologies such as single cell sequencing and new bioinformatics approaches and also discuss reference annotation of epigenomes.
The conference will start at 12.30 on Wednesday, 18 November and close at 14.00 on Friday, 20 November 2020.
Topics will include:
- Single cell & technology
- Epigenetic classifiers
- Chromatin regulation in disease
- Population studies
- Multi ‘omics’ and integrative epigenomics
- Reference annotation

We welcome abstracts from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting, for both oral and poster presentations. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted.
Abstracts will only be considered from registered delegates. Please use our online abstract submission system and follow the instructions given to ensure your abstract is submitted correctly. All abstracts must be submitted by the deadline. If you are intending to submit more than one abstract, please contact the conference organiser prior to registration.
The scientific programme committee will assess your abstract after the deadline has passed and you will be notified whether you have been selected for an oral or poster presentation.
Poster boards onsite will accommodate 118 cm high by 84 cm wide (A0- portrait) of printed material. Accepted abstracts will appear in the conference programme book and poster boards will be allocated at the conference.
Abstract deadline: 22 September 2020
