ISMB 2012 Registration Now Open and Last call for SCS8 Abstracts
Dear ISCB Members and Colleagues,
We invite you to register now for the 20th Anniversary ISMB conference being held July 15-17, 2012, in Long Beach, California. The link below will take you to a page full of details, including options, pricing, and early registration discount deadline, as well as to the online registration form itself.
Additionally, these final opportunities still exist for the possibility of presenting your work at the conference:
Student Council Symposium - deadline April 2nd
Technology Track - deadline April 20th
Late Posters - deadline April 20th
The 8th annual Student Council Symposium is a student-organized event featuring
keynote lectures, oral presentations and a poster session tailored to
undergraduate and graduate students as well as post-docs in computational
biology and related disciplines. SCS presenters are eligible to apply for
special Travel Fellowship funding secured and awarded by the Student Council.
The Technology Track provides organizations the opportunity to showcase their software and/or hardware relevant to the bioinformatics/molecular biology community. Submissions selected for presentation are required to pay a Tech Track fee and will be given a 25- or 50-minute time slot based on their status as a non- or for-profit organization.
Late Posters will be displayed and scheduled for presentation within the regular poster sessions of the conference. All posters are intended to convey a scientific result in any area of computational biology, and must include original work that is unpublished or published after August 1, 2011. While purely experimental work is especially encouraged, advertisements for commercial software packages are prohibited.
The ISMB 2012 conference agenda is currently taking shape, and you can visit the Schedule Overview in order to begin organizing your travel plans. The Program page of the site includes links to details about the conference tracks and sessions, and is being updated regularly as decisions are made on acceptances from submissions to the various tracks. And finally, the General Info page includes links to helpful information such as housing, tourist info, and the availability of child/dependent care to ensure your conference experience is both successful and enjoyable.
The ISMB 2012 Conference Co-Chairs and every member of the Scientific Organizing Committee look forward to welcoming you to Long Beach soon!
