ISMB 2012 Registration Now Open


Online registration for the 20th Anniversary ISMB conference taking place July 15-17, 2012, in Long Beach, California is closing soon. This is the last chance to receive any registration discounts before onsite registration price increases take affect. The link below will take you to a page full of details, including a direct link to the online registration form itself.

ISMB 2012 Online Registration - Deadline June 29th

Note that the conference closes at 6:00pm on July 17th after the ISCB Senior Scientist Award Keynote Lecture by Gunnar von Heijne. Be sure to plan your travel to attend his talk and the closing ceremonies and awards. We are sure you will be glad you did.

The full Conference Schedule is online to help you plan your days to attend the topics or talks that interest you most. The General Info page includes links to helpful information such as tourist info and the availability of child/dependent care to ensure your conference experience is successful and enjoyable. As Long Beach is surrounded by southern California's major attractions, this is a prime opportunity to bring the whole family and take a holiday after ISMB.

For now you can help us spread the word by tweeting about your participation using #ismb. During the conference we will be encouraging tweets using coded hashtags for tweeters and followers alike. Each presentation has a code (already viewable on the conference schedule noted above) that will be promoted at each talk to engage our tweeting community.

The countdown to Long Beach is on. We look forward to welcoming you to ISMB soon!
