Submit Tech Track

Prior to submitting please review the ISCB Exhibitor and Technology Track guidelines for presentations available here.

The Technology Track allows organizations to showcase their software and/or hardware relevant to the bioinformatics/molecular biology community.

For a variety of reasons, ISCB strongly prefers that talks accepted for oral presentation be presented in-person at the conference venue. Of course, we understand that some presenters will have good reasons to avoid in-person attendance. ISCB will grant remote presentation options for reasons associated to maternity/paternity leave, care for a family member, personal/medical disability, sickness, financial hardship, or potential visa problems. If your research is accepted for oral presentation and you are unable to present in person, ISCB requires notification at the time of acceptance.You will be asked during your confirmation of participation to confirm your in-person participation. If unable to participate you will need to request a waiver by writing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
