ISMB/ECCB 2011 will bring together scientists from a wide range of disciplines, including molecular biology, biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics and statistics. We are soliciting high-quality research posters in any aspect of computational biology.

Posters are intended to convey a scientific result and are not advertisements for commercial software packages. There will be a separate space for Industry Posters in the exhibition area - to learn more about Industry Posters contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. A poster that is judged by the conference organizers to be an advertisement will be subject to removal without notice.

Posters submitted may cover any area of computational biology. We also encourage submission of purely experimental work and experimental posters should be submitted to the category (noted below) most accurately reflecting the area of this work and will be displayed accordingly. Posters must include original work that is unpublished or published after August 1, 2010.
