Description
 
This year, APBioNet’s InCoB will be held earlier from 31st July to 2nd August 2014 to run back-to-back with the International Biophysics Congress 2014 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Queensland (3-7 Aug).

The main local host is Macquarie University, one of the leading research centres in Australia in the field of Bioinformatics. InCoB2014 will build on the established platform for experts and budding bioinformaticians to discuss and exchange ideas and thoughts on the development of bioinformatics in the Asia-Pacific region.

Since 2002, InCoB has grown in its second decade to become one of the largest bioinformatics conferences in the Asia-Pacific region. This annual conference showcases the latest research and technologies in all areas of bioinformatics, and in recent years has been attended by practitioners from both biology fields and computing backgrounds in the Asia-Pacific region.

Full paper submissions for BMC Genomics, BMC Systems Biology, BMC Bioinformatics and PeerJ are accepted through EasyChair and must be accompanied by an abstract submitted to the conference system (http://incob2014.org/submissions/full-paper-submission-information/).

Breakout Sessions: the conference has also allowed the opportunity for proposals for breakout sessions(http://incob2014.org/submissions/breakout-session-proposal-submission-information/).
