The INCEPTION project comes within the context of big data in biology. It aims to synergize different fields of expertise (biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics, and social sciences), to develop innovative solutions to the worldwide challenge of disease emergence in population and individuals. With the coronavirus outbreak, this vision built in 2016 seems precursory. In this issue, the 2020 meeting will be dedicated to COVID-19 pandemic. With the participation of high-level scientists from different background, with members of the French COVID-19 national scientific comity, this meeting is a unique occasion to discuss the contribution of different scientific fields to our understanding of the current pandemic.
The meeting will be held by videoconference on November 26th 2020, from 1:30 to 5:30 PM
