Biocom invites you to our 4th Annual Big Data Summit, taking place in San Diego on October 29th, 2019. This one-day event is an annual convergence of industry executives, bio-technologists and data scientists, dedicated to deploying emerging technologies within the life science industry, as it relates to Big Data. Through a blend of illuminating keynotes, dynamic panel discussions, and interactive use-case studies from life science organizations and best in class technology partners, this summit is aimed at bringing together thought-leaders at the forefront of innovations in artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, computational drug discovery, genomics, and MIoT.

We've carefully curated two different tracks for this year's summit, specifically designed to cater to different summit participants. The high-level track will hold strategic level discussions in our Big Data Strategy Room, while the technical track will bring together CTOs, CIOs, Data Scientists, Machine Learning Engineers and Bioinformaticists in our AI Lounge. To maximize your company's experience and take full advantage of the summit, we encourage multiple team members from different roles at your organization to participate. Register two or more folks from the same organization and receive a $25 discount per registrant. (Please note: This only applies to industry companies and does not transfer to service provider organizations.) To receive this discount, email Ashleigh Farver at
