ISMB/ECCB 2009 will bring together scientists from a wide range of disciplines, including molecular biology, biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics and statistics. We are soliciting high-quality research posters in any aspect of computational biology.
Posters are intended to convey a scientific result and are not advertisements for commercial software packages. There will be a separate space for Industry Posters in the exhibition area. A poster that is judged by the conference organizers to be an advertisement will be subject to removal without notice.
Posters submitted to ISMB/ECCB 2009 may cover any area of computational biology. We also encourage submission of purely experimental work and experimental posters should be submitted to the category (noted below) most accurately reflecting the area of this work and will be displayed accordingly. Posters must include original work that is unpublished or published after August 1, 2008.
Posters submitted for ISMB/ECCB 2009 will be reviewed by the poster selection committee and notification of acceptance will be provided to the corresponding author by March 27, 2009.

Submission Guidelines

Posters submitted by March 5, 2009 may be eligible to apply for ISMB/ECCB 2009 Conference Travel Fellowships. Posters submitted as part of the late poster submission deadline are NOT eligible to apply for ISMB/ECCB 2009 Conference Travel Fellowship Support.

All poster abstracts must be submitted using the conference submission site by the abstract deadline: Wednesday, March 5, 2009 (You have until 11.59 p.m. in the time zone of your choice). Space for posters is limited, and while we will make every effort to accommodate all interested groups, we advise you to submit your poster well before the deadline.
