ISCB Africa ASBCB 2013 - Call for Papers, Posters, and Travel Fellowship Applications

Dear ISCB and ASBCB Members and Colleagues,

Don't miss your opportunity to submit a paper or poster to the ISCB Africa ASBCB 2013 Conference on Bioinformatics! Travel Fellowship applications are also now being accepted.

This is the third joint meeting of ISCB and ASBCB, and takes place from March 13th -15th in Tunis, Tunisia. The meeting will include topics of general interest in bioinformatics, with a special focus on the bioinformatics of African pathogens, vectors, and human genetics. We especially welcome abstracts on the bioinformatics of diseases relevant to Africa, and with the new Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) initiative the genetics focus is particularly relevant and timely.

Paper submissions: due by November 16th

Poster abstracts: due by December 12th

Travel Fellowship applications: due by December 12th

Please visit the conference submission guidelines and follow the links to submit your paper or poster today.

A limited number of Travel Fellowships will be made available exclusively to students and post docs from African research institutions whose paper or poster submission is accepted. Travel Fellowship applicants must first submit a paper or poster before submitting a Travel Fellowship application. Note that the poster submission deadline is the same as for TF, so be sure not to wait until the last minute and possibly miss the deadline!

Early registration is scheduled to open in three weeks. All early registrants will benefit from discounted prices, and all ISCB and ASBCB members will enjoy significant additional savings.

Please submit your paper or poster (or both!) today. Feel free to share this mail with your colleagues and collaborators to encourage their participation as well. We hope to welcome you to Tunisia in March!

Yours sincerely,

Alia Benkahla
