Dear friends and colleagues,

We are happy to announce the 12th Berlin Summer Meeting, September 19-21, 2019 titled “Methods, Models and Myths – From Machine Learning to Biomedical Understanding”. The meeting will feature a selection of renowned international experts on this timely topic that we are extremely excited about.

This will be the first Berlin Summer Meeting entirely held in the new BIMSB research building in the center of Berlin, right on the Life Science Campus of the Humboldt University, and in immediate vicinity of the Charité, the largest medical university in Europe. Both the Berlin Summer Meeting and our new research site have been developed with the goal to promote dialogue between different scientific disciplines, so we are looking forward to finally bringing both of these things together. The meeting also represents a great occasion to see the building, which has been designed by Staab Architekten, one of Germany’s leading architecture firms, and which Chancellor Angela Merkel praised as a “beautiful gem” during her speech at the site’s inauguration.

We hope to see you there!

The Scientific Committee of the Berlin Summer Meeting 2019
