  • Affiliated Groups

    The ISCB Affiliates program is designed to forge links between ISCB and regional non-profit membership groups, centers, institutes and networks that involve researchers from various institutions and/or organizations within a defined geographic region involved in the advancement of bioinformatics. Such groups have regular meetings either in person or online, and an organizing body in the form of a board of directors or steering committee. If you are interested in affiliating your regional membership group, center, institute or network with ISCB, please review these guidelines (.pdf) and submit your application using the online ISCB Affiliated Group Application form. Your exploratory questions to ISCB about the appropriateness of a potential future affiliation are also welcome by Diane E. Kovats, ISCB Executive Director (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference 2012

Call for Tutorial Sessions - Deadline is January 20, 2012

Updated February 07, 2012

Call for submissions of Tutorial Sessions is now closed.  Submissions for Poster Abstracts still available until March 15, please click here if you would like to submit a poster abstract.  Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


We invite scientists and professionals working in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology to submit high quality tutorials for presentation at GLBIO 2012.

Tutorials should be designed as two hour sessions.

The purpose of the tutorial program is to provide participants with lectures and instruction covering either well-established or new "cutting-edge" topics. It offers participants an opportunity to obtain an introduction to important established topics in bioinformatics, to learn about new areas of bioinformatics research, or to develop advanced skills in areas about which they are already knowledgeable. Tutorials serve an educational function and are expected to provide a balanced perspective on a field of research. They should not focus on the presenters' own research or software.

How to Submit
Please prepare a written proposal, not to exceed 4 pages, describing your proposed tutorial session in the format outlined below. The written proposal should be saved as a PDF.

TUTORIAL PROPOSAL FORMAT:

Include the following information in your tutorial session proposal:

  1. Title: Please provide a short informative title (max. 20 words). The title must be attractive and should make a reader curious. This title will be used on the website and in printed materials.

  2. Topic Area: Please list the main topic area.

  3. Presenter Information: Please include for the main presenter and additional presenters the following:

    • Title (Mr/Ms/Dr/Prof/other)
    • Full name
    • Affiliation
    • Mailing Address
    • Email address
    • Telephone number – work and cell if available, with country and city codes
    • Fax number
    • Home page URL
    • Teaching experience
    • Previous tutorial presentations – give tutorial title, conference name, location, year.

  4. Suitability of this tutorial for GLBIO:

    Please provide a brief statement about how this tutorial fits the multi-disciplinary GLBIO audience, emphasizing:
    • Timeliness
    • Audience – who will benefit from this tutorial? Students? Researchers?
    • Cutting-edge science
    • Methodologies applied to a large number of bioinformatics problems

  5. 50-word abstract: Please provide a brief explanatory abstract. This will be used for advertising your tutorial, so please make it clear and appealing to potential attendees.

  6. Please provide up to two pages of detailed description of the tutorial content.

  7. Tutorial level: Introductory/Advanced

Additional Requirements: Please state clearly what prior knowledge (if any) that you expect of participants, such as "an introductory knowledge of statistics" or "suitable for those already working with expression data". Please also indicate whether the tutorial will include a practical component, so that participants can be informed that they are required to bring their own laptop computers to the session.

Financial constraints: Tutorial presenters must pay their expenses, including registration, to participate in the meeting. Therefore, the organizers highly encourage tutorial organizers to seek independent funding, and to include any commitment that they may have secured in the proposal. GLBIO will help in the administrative aspects of assigning the rooms, announcements and adding the detailed schedule to the conference program. Note that the GLBIO cannot financially support the speakers or the tutorial organizers.

Conference Proceedings
Tutorial Session Presentations will NOT be considered for publication as part of the conference proceedings, only oral presentations.

Notification date: All submissions will be evaluated by a committee. Submitters will be notified by March 2, 2012 if the tutorial session has been selected for presentation at the GLBIO2012 Conference.

We encourage organizers of tutorials to have printed or online tutorial workbooks for each tutorial participant. We anticipate approximately 100 attendees at tutorial sessions.

Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference 2012

Call for Special Sessions - Deadline is January 20, 2012

Updated February 07, 2012

Call for submissions of Special Sessions is now closed.  Submissions for Poster Abstracts still available until March 15, please click here if you would like to submit a poster abstract.  Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


We invite proposals for Special Sessions that focus on a particular theme of the 2012 Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference (GLBIO 2012). Special Session proposals will be reviewed by the program committee and submission does not guarantee your session will be chosen.

Special sessions have time slots of (1) one hour in length. Sessions can cover a broad range of topics relating to research in bioinformatics and computational biology. The purpose of these sessions is to bring together people with common interests to discuss defined topics. The format can include multiple research presentations and ample discussion time, or even a panel discussion.

How to Submit:
Submit a written proposal (up to two-pages in length) including the following:

• Main topic area and description of the topic/session
• Provide 50 word abstract describing session to be used for the printed material
• Topic relevance to the GLBIO community
• Reasons for planning a session on this topic
• Draft time schedule for the Session
• List of any invited speakers (indicate which speakers are confirmed)
• Qualifications/experience of submitter

Please save the proposal file as a PDF named with the session type and submitter last name. For example...if the first person submitting the proposal is John Doe, then save to "specialsession_doe.pdf."

Financial constraints: Session chairs and speakers must pay their expenses including registration to participate at the meeting. Therefore, the organizers highly encourage Session organizers to seek independent funding, and to include any commitment that they may have secured in the proposal. GLBIO will help in the administrative aspects of assigning the rooms, announcements and adding the detailed schedule to the conference program. Note that GLBIO cannot financially support the speakers or the Session organizers.

Notification date: All submissions will be evaluated by a committee and submitters will be notified March 2, 2012 if the session has been selected for presentation at the GLBIO2012 Conference. Following notification of acceptance, the detailed schedule, names and affiliations of speakers, presentation titles and short abstracts will be required to be submitted before April 14, 2012 for inclusion in printed materials. Session organizers and Session speakers must be registered for GLBIO by this date.
