The German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB) is an annual international, anglophone annual conference covering all areas of bioinformatics. The GCB is awarded by FaBI taking place at changing locations in Germany. FaBI awards the GCB to the applying cities. The tradition of the GCB goes back to a conference called “Biotechnologie & Information” – biotechnology and informatics – in 1985 in Braunschweig organized by Dietmar Schomburg. In 1986-1989, the conference took place at the Gesellschaft für Biotechnologische Forschung (the present Helmholtz Center for Infection Research) in Braunschweig and was called "Computeranwendungen in den Biowissenschaften" – Computer applications on the biosciences. Until 1992 the conference was called "Computer Applications in the Biosciences" and held in English. In 1993, the conference was for the first time organized in cooperation with the GI (German Informatics Society) and received its current name "German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB)". Looking back at such a long tradition, the GCB is the oldest conference on bioinformatics/computational biology worldwide that takes place on a regular basis.
