2005 Registration

DEMOS The purpose of ISMB 2005 Software Demos is to allow organizations to demonstrate, in private rooms, software and/or hardware that is relevant to the molecular biology community. Demonstration times will be scheduled throughout the conference and are open to corporations, non-profit organizations, government labs, and university staff and students.

Questions, requests, cancellations or changes should be directed to

  • 1-hour demo session (scheduled by the ISMB 2005 local organizing committee)
  • Listing in the conference program, including your demonstration time in the main schedule and a 50-word summary in a special section of the program book
  • Private demonstration room
  • Independent submission and acceptance procedures for academic and corporate demos
Corporate Demos

To run a 1-hour corporate demo, you must pay US$3,000 or sign up for a package sponsorship. To do this, please first complete the SIGN UP FORM. Platinum sponsors receive two 1-hour demo slots as part of their sponsorship package. Gold, and silver sponsors are given one 1-hour demo slot as part of their sponsorship package.

See the sponsorship packages page for more information.

Academic Demos - Call For Academic Demos is now closed.

Authors of accepted demos will be notified by April 1, 2005. The 50-word summary will be printed in the conference program, and the one-page abstract will be posted on the conference web site. Academic demos will be scheduled during a single 1-hour slot.

Please note: All software and data described in academic demos must befree of cost and available without restrictions on use or access to academic or non-profit users, regardless of whether the submitters' employer or home institution is a for-profit, non-profit, or academic organization. Submitters may provide their software under a license, retain intellectual property rights to the code, and charge licensing fees to "for-profit" users.


Demos will be scheduled in 1-hour slots; the last 10 minutes of each slot will be reserved for preparation of the next demo, which gives you 50 minutes for the presentation of your demo.

You will be provided with a Windows-based desktop computer and Internet access. If you require a different operating system, please bring your own computer and contact the audiovisual team at least 24 hours before you are due to give your demo.

If you intend to use a Windows computer provided by the conference for your demonstration, please bring a CD containing any software and presentation material that needs to be loaded, or make your software and other material downloadable via the internet.

Within your time slot, you are at liberty to demonstrate your software in any way that you see fit: for example, you can combine one or more structured talks with live demos and question-and-answer sessions. Authors should provide handouts for attendees.

Major sponsors will be given precedence for corporate demo slots.


Corporate demonstration presenters will be contacted by a ISMB 2005 Committee Member to arrange your demo schedule and logistics following receipt of the sign up form and payment.

Academic demonstration presenters will be notified of acceptance by April 1, 2005, following review of the abstracts.
