2nd Interdisciplinary Signaling Workshop
Hungary - Pest County - Visegard
Jul 17, 2017 through Jul 21, 2017

Building successful interdisciplinary collaborations to address problems in cellular signaling is becoming increasingly important, as the size of datasets and diversity of different experimental approaches continues to increase. We have designed the program of this second Interdisciplinary Signalling Workshop to help support further development and deployment of such approaches, building on the success of the previous workshop.

5th RECOMB Satellite Workshop on Computational Methods in Genetics
Los Angeles - United States
Jul 27, 2017 through Jul 28, 2017

Over the last decade, large-scale, cost-effective availability of genotype data has led to novel analytical opportunities and computational challenges in statistical genetics. Population genetics allows more refined understanding of the demographic history of our species. Association analysis provides insights into the functional and molecular underpinnings of diseases and traits. Clinical applications suggest genetics is emerging as a trailblazer in personalized medicine. Complex bioinformatics questions arise, ranging from inferring more nuanced statistical models of genetic information to algorithms that overcome the complexity challenges of analyzing millions of SNPs across millions of individuals, to systems level challenges of handling such Big Data repositories of genotypes and phenotypes.

6th RECOMB Satellite Workshop on Computational Cancer Biology
Los Angeles - United States
Jul 28, 2017 through Jul 29, 2017

Cancer research is undergoing a revolution driven by the application of high-throughput techniques such as genome sequencing, single-cell analysis, miRNA profiling, and mass spectrometry. Today’s high-throughput techniques are capable of performing in-depth characterization of tumor samples and producing large collections of data that have implications for both basic biology and clinical translation. Cancer is a disease of tremendous complexity; thus, the analysis and interpretation of this data with a systems biology approach demands sophisticated, specialized computational methods. This workshop brings together leading researchers in the mathematical, computational and biological sciences to discuss advances and open questions in cancer research.

Early Registration Deadline: 2017-03-01 through 2017-07-28

ISMB/ECCB 2017

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Submit your Research to the Premier Comp. Bio. Conference of the Year!


ISMB/ECCB 2017 invites Abstract submissions - previously Highlights & Late Breaking Research - to shape the scientific content of this dynamic conference!

Talks will be organized according to scientific topics which are covered by the 13 Communities of Special Interest (COSIs):


If the topic of your submission falls outside the COSI groups, topics on emerging issues within the field should submit under "Other Topics."

Don’t miss your chance to discover, innovate and connect!


Submit Your Research Today to ISMB/ECCB 2017

ISMB/ECCB 2017 scientific program is shaping up nicely and you still have the opportunity to be a part of it.  This year’s meeting has incorporated the long-standing SIGs into the main conference structure.  The conference will be spread over four days, organized into 14 thematic areas.  The ISCB Communities of Special Interest (COSIs- formally known as SIGs) invite you to submit your work to be presented in these thematically organized tracks.  

Those wishing to submit unpublished (late-breaking research talks) or published (highlight talks) work are invited to do so through the Abstract Submission portal.  Abstract submission is approximately the equivalent of the old “highlights/late breaking” submission categories. To submit your abstract (highlight or late-breaking talk) select the COSI that best fits your research area and submit through the provided submission link.

We also encourage and welcome submissions that fall outside of the 14 thematic areas.  To submit to the open call of abstracts (late-breaking research and highlight talks), select the other topics abstract submission portal. These submissions will be independently peer-reviewed from the COSI thematic submissions and selected for oral presentation.

Submission Deadlines
Abstract submissions deadline  April 13, 2017
    which includes BioVis proceeding submissions deadline
CAMDA submissions deadline  May 19, 2017

*Some COSI abstract submission deadlines may vary.  Please see their specific abstract portal for additional information.*

We look forward to celebrating the 25 anniversary of ISMB with you in Prague, Czech Republic.
