This meeting will focus on current research at the intersection of genetics, computer science, statistics, and related fields in gathering and analyzing SNP and haplotype data and applying it to problems in medicine and basic research. We plan to build on the success of previous RECOMB Satellite Meetings on Computational Methods for SNPs and Haplotypes in bringing together leading participants from widely divergent backgrounds to share their expertise and results.

Original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) or state-of-the-art surveys are solicited in all aspects of SNP analysis and genetics, including, but not limited to:
- Association analysis pipelines, imputation, phasing and meta-analysis
- Rare variants analyses and burden tests
- Risk/phenotype prediction models and heritability analysis
- Analysis of molecular and ‘omics phenotypes (e.g., gene expression and other epigenetic markers)
- Complex associations including mixed models, epistasis, normalization
- Structured phenotypes: multiple/serial/intermediate phenotypes and pleiotropy
- Inference of population structure and demographic history
- Models for mutation, recombination, selection, and conservation
- Relatedness and identity-by-descent
- Structural variation
