ISCB News and Announcements


December 6 - 8 , 2012, Snowmass/Aspen, Colorado, USA

Dear ISCB Members and Colleagues,

Please join us for the 10th Annual Rocky Mountain Bioinformatics Conference! The Rocky conference series has grown from a small regional event into an international program with a spotlight on regional development in the computational biosciences. Invited and accepted presenters represent a broad spectrum of universities, industrial enterprises, government laboratories, and medical libraries from around the world. The meeting is a chance to get to know your colleagues near and far, seek collaborative opportunities, and find synergies that can drive our field forward.

The Rocky 2012 Conference (www.iscb.org/rocky2012) provides opportunities for short flash presentations (10 minute talks) on current projects from as many attendees as possible. Original presentations (including significant works-in-progress) are solicited in all areas that involve the application of advanced computational methods to significant problems in biology or medicine.

Submitters are given the option to apply for a 10-minute "flash" oral presentation, a poster presentation, or both. We will attempt to accommodate all requests from authors accepted for presentation. The submission form is located here: www.iscb.org/rocky2012-program/rocky2012-call-for-presentations.

Submission Form Key Dates:

  • Submission Deadline: October 4, 2012
  • Acceptance Notification: November 2, 2012

EARLY REGISTRATION IS OPEN: Take advantage of early registration rates by visiting: www.iscb.org/rocky2012-register. Please note that accepted presenters must register as a conference attendee by November 6 in order to give a presentation at Rocky 2012.

We look forward to your participation! Please feel free to share this invitation with your colleagues and collaborators - the Rocky conference offers a special Academic Retreat package for groups attending from the same lab or school, including a free student registration.

We hope to see you there!
