The 24th annual Bioinformatics Open Source Conference ( BOSC 2023) was part of the 2023i conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology and the European Conference on Computational Biology (ISMB/ECCB 2023). Launched in 2000 and held yearly since, BOSC is the premier meeting covering open-source bioinformatics and open science. Like ISMB 2022, the 2023 meeting was a hybrid conference, with the in-person component hosted in Lyon, France. ISMB/ECCB attracted a near-record number of attendees, with over 2100 in person and about 900 more online. Approximately 200 people participated in BOSC sessions. In addition to 43 talks and 49 posters, BOSC featured two keynotes: Sara El-Gebali, who spoke about "A New Odyssey: Pioneering the Future of Scientific Progress Through Open Collaboration", and Joseph Yracheta, who spoke about "The Dissonance between Scientific Altruism & Capitalist Extraction: The Zero Trust and Federated Data Sovereignty Solution." Once again, a joint session brought together BOSC and the Bio-Ontologies COSI. The conference ended with a panel on Open and Ethical Data Sharing. As in prior years, BOSC was preceded by a CollaborationFest, a collaborative work event that brought together about 40 participants interested in synergistically combining ideas, shaping project plans, developing software, and more.
