Dear ISMB 2008 Delegate,
Thank you very much for attending the ISMB 2008 conference in Toronto. In order to help us plan for our future conferences, we encourage your feedback by completing the conference survey at This should take less than 10 minutes of your time and will prove invaluable in our efforts to continually improve and learn from the experiences of our delegates.

Thank you again for your participation. We hope to welcome you again next year to ISMB/ECCB 2009 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Best regards,

Become an ISMB Reporter!

ISCB is looking for a few aspiring reporters, who also happen to be attending ISMB 2008 in Toronto. A small group of professional writers attend ISMB each year to publish conference reports in their respective journals and publications. This year we are also seeking a select corps of students and Jr. Scientists to take on the role of writing about the vast scientific content of the conference and the personal experience of participating in this large, international bioinformatics event. Submissions will be reviewed for posting to the ISMB website, and will be considered for publication in the designated ISCB pages of PLoS Computational Biology, the Society's official journal, as a single author report or as part of a larger report compiled from the contributions of multiple authors.

If interested, please write to BJ Morrison McKay, ISCB Executive Officer, at Inquiries from more senior scientists are welcome on behalf of an enthusiastic student/post doc, or even on your own behalf. If you are not reading this until the conference is already underway, just make contact with the ISCB Booth in the exhibition area to express your interest. First draft report submissions will be due within 30 days of the close of the conference.
