International Symposium of Variants in the Genome (ISV) 2024


13 - 15 May 2024

HUGO 15th International Symposium on Variants in the Genome

Porto, Portugal 


We’re excited to announce that registration and abstract submission is open for the 15th International Symposium on Variants in the Genome: detection, sequencing, interpretation (isv24) to be held 13th to 15th May 2024 in Porto, Portugal! 


The symposium focuses on cutting-edge developments for scanning, sequencing, databasing, and bioinformatics analysis of variants in DNA, RNA, and protein. With technology setting the pace, understanding how variants effect the health of an individual has become crucial and is quickly changing the way genomic data is interpreted. This symposium will also give special emphasis to the capabilities and methods for functional testing and classification of genomic variants related to disease.


A stellar line-up of keynote speakers and leading researchers from around the world together with speakers invited from submitted abstracts after peer review will present their research. The meeting will also include interactive workshops on topics related to clinical interpretation of variants and data collection. The Symposium provides an excellent platform, motivating participants to share knowledge and network with international experts in all areas of human genetics.  The event will feature a series of keynote lectures, oral presentations, and poster sessions, covering a wide range of topics.


As a participant, you will have the opportunity to network with other professionals in the field, share your research findings, and learn about the latest tools and techniques for analysing genomic data. This symposium is also an excellent opportunity for students and early-career researchers to showcase their work and receive feedback from experts in the field.


We invite you to submit your abstracts and encourage you to travel to the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage city of Porto, Portugal to learn and participate at this dynamic meeting.


Please visit our symposium website for more information and to register for the event. We look forward to welcoming you to Porto in May 2024 and sharing in the exchange of ideas and research in genomics.
