The Next NGS Challenge 2013 - Last Call for Abstracts for Oral Presentations

Dear ISCB Members and Colleagues,

The deadline for submitting abstracts for Oral Presentations for The Next NGS Challenge, is


this Friday, February 15th!


Please consider submitting an abstract (click here) and participating in this exciting conference.


The Next NGS Challenge Conference, a joint event of the EU COST Action SeqAhead, the EMBnet, the International Society of Computational Biology (ISCB) and the 7FP Project STATegra, is dedicated to the presentation of innovative computational approaches to the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data.

The conference will be held in Valencia, Spain, on May 14-16, 2013.

The Conference will consist of keynote lectures, oral presentations and lively poster sessions.  The  organizers invite submissions that describe novel applications of NGS, as well as bioinformatic algorithms for data processing and analysis.  Submissions dealing with efficient solutions to the management and storage of these large datasets are also welcomed.

Registration is open, with an early registration discount available until March 15, 2013.

You can find further information at the Conference site: www.thenextngschallenge.org/.

We look forward to seeing you in Spain!
