Workshops/Mini Courses

Workshops/Mini Courses

Deadline: July 31, 2014

ISCB-LA 2014 Conference calls for submissions to the Workshop/ Mini Courses track.  The purpose of the workshop track is to bring together people with common interests to discuss defined topics. 

Proposals for Workshops should be submitted via the online submission system here by end of day July 31, 2014.

Submissions must include up to a one-page description of the topic, its relevance to the community, and the reasons for planning a workshop on this topic at ISCB-LA 2014. These explanations could be followed by a list of topics for possible presentations with one-paragraph descriptions. Finally, a draft time schedule for the workshop should be presented. A finalized list of speaker names is not necessary but may add validity to the proposal. If you list invited speakers as "accepted", please make sure that they agree to speak understanding the financial constraints described below. Submitters should briefly describe their qualification/experience in organizing a workshop.

All submissions will be evaluated by a committee considering the following criteria:

  • Relevance, interest, and value of the topic to attendees.
  • Complementarity to the conference program.
  • Completeness, clarity, and quality of the workshop proposal.
  • Qualification of the submitter(s) to organize the workshop.
  • Likely success of the proposed workshop.
