The Twelfth International Conference on Data Integration in the Life Sciences 2017 (DILS2017) was held at Luxembourg on November 14th and 15th, 2017.
The conference aim is to foster discussion, exchange, and innovation in research and development in the areas of data integration, data analytics and knowledge management for the life sciences.
