Welcome to HUPO 2021 ReCONNECT - Fully Virtual Congress!
In 2020, HUPO responded to the needs of an unprecedented public health environment and delivered a comprehensive and very successful virtual HUPO Connect Congress. After careful consideration and considerations of the pandemic status, travel restrictions and a survey among the HUPO Council, we have decided that the HUPO 2021 ReCONNECT Congress will again be presented as a virtual meeting from November 15 – 19, 2021 with an exciting Pre-Congress program from November 8 – 12, 2021.
With an engaging scientific program which includes pre-congress sessions from November 8 – 12 (Pre-congress Training Course, Bioinformatics Hub, HPP Day) and 12 Plenary & Keynote Sessions as well as Hot Topic Discussion Groups and Industry Seminars in the main program from November 15 – 19, 2021, strong Early Career Researcher (ECR) involvement through the manuscript and poster competition, and innovative virtual networking opportunities, you don’t want to miss HUPO 2021 ReCONNECT! The registration fee not includes access to the live sessions, but also access to the recordings for 3 months after the Congress.
Our new highly interactive virtual platform Gather.Town provides delegates with the opportunity to talk directly to presenters and other delegates via video chat. They will be able to ‘wander’ around, meet other delegates and join hallway conversations and mingle between groups. We cannot wait to see you soon.
In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.

on behalf of the HUPO Executive Committee
