We invite scientists and professionals working in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology to submit high quality tutorials for presentation at GLBIO 2012.
Tutorials should be designed as two hour sessions.
The purpose of the tutorial program is to provide participants with lectures and instruction covering either well-established or new "cutting-edge" topics. It offers participants an opportunity to obtain an introduction to important established topics in bioinformatics, to learn about new areas of bioinformatics research, or to develop advanced skills in areas about which they are already knowledgeable. Tutorials serve an educational function and are expected to provide a balanced perspective on a field of research. They should not focus on the presenters' own research or software.
How to Submit
Please prepare a written proposal, not to exceed 4 pages, describing your proposed tutorial session in the format outlined below. The written proposal should be saved as a PDF.
TUTORIAL PROPOSAL FORMAT:
Include the following information in your tutorial session proposal:
Additional Requirements: Please state clearly what prior knowledge (if any) that you expect of participants, such as "an introductory knowledge of statistics" or "suitable for those already working with expression data". Please also indicate whether the tutorial will include a practical component, so that participants can be informed that they are required to bring their own laptop computers to the session.
Financial constraints: Tutorial presenters must pay their expenses, including registration, to participate in the meeting. Therefore, the organizers highly encourage tutorial organizers to seek independent funding, and to include any commitment that they may have secured in the proposal. GLBIO will help in the administrative aspects of assigning the rooms, announcements and adding the detailed schedule to the conference program. Note that the GLBIO cannot financially support the speakers or the tutorial organizers.
Tutorial Session Presentations will NOT be considered for publication as part of the conference proceedings, only oral presentations.
Notification date: All submissions will be evaluated by a committee. Submitters will be notified by March 2, 2012 if the tutorial session has been selected for presentation at the GLBIO2012 Conference.
We encourage organizers of tutorials to have printed or online tutorial workbooks for each tutorial participant. We anticipate approximately 100 attendees at tutorial sessions.
