ISMB 2012 Early Registration - Deadline June 1st

Note that the conference closes at 6:00pm on July 17th after the ISCB Senior Scientist Award Keynote Lecture by Gunnar von Heijne. This is a talk not to be missed, so be sure to plan your travel accordingly so you can stay through to the end of the conference.

The full Conference Schedule is now complete so you can plan your time at the conference to be sure to attend the topics or talks that most interest you based on your specific area of investigation. And 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. Long Beach is a great jumping off point for all of southern California's major attractions, so be sure to bring the whole family and spend some extra time in the area on holiday.

ISMB has blocked a limited number of discounted rooms at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach, which is connected to the Long Beach Convention Center and is serving as our Headquarters Hotel. Full details are available HERE. Rooms had already sold out during specific nights of the conference date range, but today we succeeded in securing additional rooms that are also expected to sell out fast. To take advantage of the conference rate of $169.00 single occupancy, plus taxes (currently 15.1%) for a stay anytime between July 7th and July 20th, book online at  https://resweb.passkey.com/go/ISMB2012LB

If you are interested in exploring alternative options for accommodations you might want to visit the Long Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau website for hotels in the Downtown Long Beach area. There are several hotels within close walking distance to the Long Beach Convention Center.

Help us spread the word by tweeting about your participation using #ismb. You are also invited to follow us on Twitter @ISMBinfo where we will begin posting news and updates about conference specifics leading up to the conference dates.

The ISMB 2012 Conference Co-Chairs and every member of the Scientific Organizing Committee look forward to welcoming you to Long Beach soon!
