All Submissions for GLBIO: Click here for Easychair
Submissions are invited for full papers, short papers, and posters at the 12th Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference (an official conference of the International Society for Computational Biology). This is an invitation to scientists and professionals working in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology to submit high quality original research papers for presentation at GLBIO 2017. Authors of papers that are accepted to the conference will present their papers at the conference (longer talks for full papers, shorter talks for the short papers). GLBIO 2017 does not have a conference proceedings, but accepted full papers will be considered by PLOS One for inclusion in a special issue devoted to GLBIO 2017.
A wide definition and inclusion of bioinformatics/computational biology will be considered, and topics of interest include the following:
- Algorithms & Machine Learning
- Bioinformatics Education
- Clinical & Health Informatics
- Data Science
- Databases, Ontologies & Biocurtion
- Disease Models & Molecular Medicine
- Epidemiology & Biodiversity
- Evolutionary & Comparative Genomics
- Gene Regulation & Transcriptomics
- Genome Informatics
- Image Analysis
- Metagenomics & Microbiome Informatics
- Macromolecular Structure & Function
- Network Biology
- Proteomics & Metabolomics
- Sequence Analysis
- Synthetic Biology
- Systems Modeling
- Text Mining & Natural Language Processing

|Full Paper and PLOS ONE Submission Information|
Full Papers for Oral Presentation submissions to GLBIO 2017 should be prepared using PLOS ONE format. Submission are done through Easychair and the deadline is February 1, 2017.
Authors of all full papers that are accepted for oral talks at the conference will have the option of being considered for publication in a PLOS ONE Collection devoted to the conference. Prior to submission to PLOS ONE, authors who decide to proceed with this option are expected to address the reviewers’ comments received during the GLBIO review process. Then, such revised papers will be subject to additional peer review by the journal, where members of the PLOS ONE Editorial Board who are also members of the GLBIO Program Committee will handle the papers and, where possible, invite the same reviewers that have participated in the GLBIO review process.
The two best submissions to the Collection, [as judged by the Program Committee], will be highlighted on the PLOS Collections page and lead authors will be interviewed about their work for the PLOS Collections Blog. Interviews will be featured on the PLOS Collections page. The authors will also have the option to take part in a PLOS Science Wednesday Ask Me Anything on Reddit.
Note that last year (for GLBIO 2016), the average time to publication for the GLBIO papers submitted to PLOS ONE was about half the overall PLOS ONE average.
Authors are responsible for any fees or expenses in regards to the PLOS ONE publication of their paper. For more information see: http://collections.plos.org/s/finances-for-special-collections.
|Short Papers for Oral Presentation|
Short Papers for Oral Presentation submissions to GLBIO 2017 should be a page in length (approximately 600 words) and have no figures. Submission deadline in Easychair is March 13, 2017.
All accepted short papers will have the chance to publish their work in the ISCB Community Journal and will be contacted after acceptance about this opportunity.
Abstracts for Poster submissions to GLBIO 2017 should be half a page in length (approximately 300 words) and have no figures. Submission deadline in Easychair is March 27, 2017 for Posters and April 17, 2017 for Late Breaking Posters.
We also encourage all participants to submit their posters and slides (for free) to The Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference (GLBIO) conference channel in the ISCB Community Journal.
