ISMB/ECCB 2007 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.

Submission Guidelines

  • All poster abstracts must be submitted using the conference submission site by the abstract deadline: Friday, April 6, 2007 (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.
  • Submissions will not be accepted after April 6, 2007. Posters submitted by the deadline will be notified of acceptance by Monday, April 23, 2007.
  • You must submit two versions of your poster abstract: a 50-word abstract that will be printed in the conference program and a one-page abstract (~250 words/ PDF format) that will be posted on the conference web site.
    Posters may cover material in any area of computational biology. Posters must include original work that is unpublished or published after August 1, 2006.
  • The abstract should not contain your title/position or any personal information (e.g. affiliation).
  • There is a maximum of one poster per presenting author. The presenting author of a poster must be present at the conference and be available at the poster session to which their poster is assigned.
