SCOG event

SCOG Workshop ‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Epigenomics 2022’

We are excited to announce this upcoming in-person workshop at Linslerhof, Überherrn/ Saarlouis.
The meeting will provide an overview of the latest findings and developments in the field of single cell epigenomics with cutting edge discussions. It will be followed by a hackathon on epiScanpy, a tool for the analysis of single cell epigenomics data.

Application closed! 

Program with abstracts for invited talks, short talks and posters HERE.

    The hackathon will be structured into two parts. At the beginning, we will present a tutorial about scanpy and episcanpy for you to get familiar with it. The second part of the hackathon will be hands-on programming: you will get access to some single-cell data and we will propose several open problems that we want to solve. You will have several hours to work in groups, and program solutions to the open problems, and finally apply your solution to the available data.


    We have blocked a number of rooms at the conference venue (Linslerhof). Booking should be made individually by the participants after acceptance of the registration. The accommodation is sponsored by the BMBF (SCOG). Further information will be provided after registration.


    The places for the meeting and the hackathon are limited (meeting: 50 places, hackathon: 25 places). Please complete the registration application, including information about your activities and interest in the field of single cell epigenomics. This information is important so that the organizing committee can review and accept applications, e.g. to consider the equal participation with respect to institutions, gender etc.

    Opening of applications: 08 August 2022
    Application closed on 22 September! You can sign up on the waiting list.

    Notification of acceptance will be announced approximately 2 weeks after the application deadline and further information will be provided to complete and finalize the registration. If the application deadline is extended, the selection will be announced later.
    We encourage participants to apply for the meeting and hackathon and to submit an abstract for a poster or a short presentation.
