CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
3rd ISCB Student Council Symposium 2007
Deadline Friday, June 15, 2007
We invite all ISCB Student Council Symposium attendees to consider submitting an abstract for presentation as a poster or for oral presentation if their outstanding submission is selected by the program committee.
Submission Deadline: Friday, June 15, 2007
Acceptance Date: Tuesday, July 3, 2007
Program Chair: Sarath Chandra Janga
The Student Council Symposium serves as a platform for students to present their research in computational biology and related areas. We solicit your original and unpublished contribution for presentation at the symposium from all subfields of computational biology.
- All poster abstracts must be submitted using the conference submission site by the abstract deadline: Friday, June 15, 2007 (You have until 11.59 p.m. in the time zone of your choice). Space for posters is limited, and while we will make every effort to accommodate all interested groups, we advise you to submit your poster well before the deadline.
- Submissions will not be accepted after June 15, 2007. Posters submitted by the deadline will be notified of acceptance by Tuesday, July 3, 2007.
- You must submit two versions of your abstract: a 50-word summary that will be printed in the program booklet and a 500 word abstract in PDF format that may contain up to two figures, tables or similar constructs with no more than a total of 100 words for captions. This version will be posted on the symposium web site.
Abstracts may cover material in any area of computational biology. They must include original work that is unpublished or published after August 1, 2006.
- There is a maximum of one poster per presenting author. The presenting author of a poster must be present at the symposium and be available at the poster. Any author may submit to ISMB/ECCB 2007 tracks as well, including Paper for original work, Highlights for previously published work, PLoS and ISMB/ECCB 2007 Poster for original or previously published work presented as an abstract.
- The ideal poster size should be max. 1.30 m (130 cm) high x 0.90 m (90 cm) wide. Fasteners (Velcro / double sided tape) will be provided at the site, please DO NOT bring tape, tacks or pins.
- Oral presentations will be around 20 minutes in length. Detailed instructions will be communicated after the notification date.
- The ISCB Student Council Symposium will not offer tables for laptop computer demos during the poster session. If you would like to demonstrate your software, you are encouraged to submit an application for ISMB/ECCB 2007 Demonstrations.
- All abstracts will be considered a “personal communication” to the conference attendees. Abstracts will not be published in the proceedings, but will appear in the program and on the conference website. However, the organizing committee is trying to raise sufficient funds to publish the abstracts as proceedings in an established computational biology journal.
- Submitted posters will be reviewed and categorized into the following general areas:
- Bioinformatics of Health and Disease
- Chemical and Pharmaceutical Informatics
- Comparative Genomics
- Ecosystems & Ecology
- Function Prediction
- Gene Prediction
- Genome annotation
- Machine Learning
- Multiscale Modeling
- Population Genetics and Variation
- Sequence analysis
- Structural Genomics
- Structure and Function Prediction
- Systems Biology & Networks
- Text Mining
- Other – Posters that do not fall into the above categories may be considered as well.
Poster design and guidelines for oral presentations will be posted following the notification date of July 3, 2007.
