Call for Late Breaking Research Track Proposals - ISMB 2016
Late Breaking Research Track Submissions - Opens: January 25, 2016
ISMB 2016 brings together Bioinformaticians and Computational Biologists working in a wide range of disciplines, including molecular biology, biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics and statistics. Papers that demonstrate both the development of new computational techniques and their application to Molecular and Systems Biology, with significant outcomes to biomedical, agricultural, and environmental questions are especially encouraged.
The presentation of talks at ISMB is by theme. Oral presentations from accepted submissions from Highlights, Proceedings and Late Breaking Research will be presented by theme. A listing of Theme Chairs is available here. The themes are:
Databases, Ontologies, & Text Mining
Disease Models & Epidemiology
Evolution and Comparative Genomics (genes/genomes)
Sequence Analysis (genes)
Evolution and Comparative Genomics (proteins)
Protein Interactions & Molecular Networks (protein interactions)
Protein Structure & Function
Sequence Analysis (proteins)
Protein Interactions & Molecular Networks (molecular networks)
Submitters will choose the area best suited to their paper during the submission process.

Submissions and evaluation criteria:
Authors are to provide a 2 page, total, extended abstract of their work, including one (1) figure (11pt font, 1.5-inch margins). References can be included in the two pages. Submitters may choose to provide a link to a short (<=5min) video (eg. youtube) of them presenting their work, to assess presentation skills. Submissions will also be evaluated on the potential for an excellent and interesting presentation. Significance, interest to the bioinformatics community, and biological/medical impact will be the key evaluation criteria. Each submitter must provide a title, a short one (1) paragraph public abstract for inclusion in the electronic conference program and website. A one or two (1 or 2) sentence summary of novelty and significance of the work is to be included.
