10 - 12 April 2024

Vienna BioCenter, Austria

The 9th Probabilistic Modeling in Genomics Conference (ProbGen24), will be held in Vienna, Austria, April 10-12 2024, at the Vienna BioCenter, close to the center of Vienna, 20 minutes from the airport by public transport, and with excellent train connections.


The conference will cover models, algorithms and  methods across a broad range of applications in genetics and genomics. We invite abstract submissions on topics ranging from phylogeny and population genetics to single cell -omics and machine learning in cancer biology. For an idea of the topics covered, please see the programs of previous meetings, which have been alternating between CSHL (2023, 2021, 2018, 2015), and locations in Europe (Oxford 2022, 2016, Aussois 2019, and Aarhus 2017).

As usual the format will encourage plenty of interaction. In addition to invited speakers, talks will be selected from submitted abstracts, and there will also be two poster sessions.


• Andrew Clark, Cornell University
• Mercedes Pascual, New York University
• Shamil Sunyaev, Harvard Medical School


• Anne-Florence Bitbol, EPFL, Lausanne - Microbiome
• Jasmine Foo, University of Minnesota - Cancer biology
• Mikkel Heide Schierup, Aarhus University - Molecular evolution
• Sebastian Höhna, Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich - Phylogenetics
• Denise Kühnert, Max Planck Institute of Geoanthropology, Jena - Epidemiology
• M. Elise Lauterbur, University of Arizona - Population genetics I (selection)
• Pier Palamara, Oxford University - Population genetics II (demography, Ancestral Recombination Graphs)
• Molly Przeworski, Columbia University - Mutation and recombination
• Yun S. Song, University of California, Berkeley - Systems biology, AI and Machine Learning
• Oliver Stegle, Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, Heidelberg - Genomics


Please register here.  Deadline for abstract submission is 15 February, 2024, and presentation space is limited so please register as soon as possible if you want to be assured of having a slot (oral presentations will be selected from abstracts, but poster space will be first-come, first-served). We particularly encourage abstract submissions from junior investigators, including postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. We are applying for funds to partially support the travel expenses of selected speakers who would otherwise not be able to attend. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
