ISMB 2018
ISMB 2018 Call for Abstracts!
Want to present your research at ISMB 2018?
Abstract Submission Deadline:  April 5, 2018

We invite abstracts for research that is topical to bioinformatics and computational biology, which is new or in progress (unpublished, formally Late-Breaking Research) or has been published after January 1, 2017 (previously Highlights Track) for consideration for oral and/or poster presentation.

First, review the Communities of Special Interest (COSI) Track information and submit to the COSI that most accurately reflects the area of the work. (During the submission process you may also select other COSIs where your work may also be suitable for presentation.)

Talks and posters are organized according to scientific topics which are covered by the COSIs. Please note, abstracts are not limited to COSI topics and if the topic of your submission falls outside the listed COSIs you can choose the "General Computational Biology" area. Your abstract should convey a scientific result and should not be an advertisement for any commercial software package - this type of abstract should be submitted into the technology track.
