ISMB/ECCB 2015 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 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 Posters must include original work that is unpublished or published after August 1, 2014.
Submitted late posters will be reviewed by the poster selection committee and notification of acceptance will be provided to the corresponding author no later than Friday, May 8, 2015.
Late Posters will not be evaluated for Oral Poster Presentation track.
All poster abstracts must be submitted using the conference submission site by the abstract deadline: Thursday, April 16, 2015 (You have until 11:59 p.m. in the time zone of your choice). Space for posters is limited, and while we will make every effort to accommodate all interested groups, we advise you to submit your poster well before the deadline.
Late Posters submitted by the April 16, 2015 deadline will be notified of acceptance by Friday, May 8, 2015. Poster abstracts (maximum 250 words) will be posted on the conference web site. The abstract should not contain your title/position or any personal information (e.g. affiliation). There is a maximum of one poster per presenting author. The presenting author of a poster must be registered delegate and be available at the poster session to which their poster is assigned. Any author may submit to various conference tracks in addition to submitting a poster for review.
Odd Numbered posters:
On display Sunday, July 12, 10:00 a.m. through Monday, July 13, 2:30 p.m.
Author presentations will take place Sunday, July 12: 5:40 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Even Numbered posters:
On display Monday, July 13, 4:30 p.m. through Tuesday, July 14, 2:30 p.m.
Author presentations will take place Monday, July 13: 5:40 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Poster Sessions with Authors are held 5:40 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 12 (odd numbered posters) and Monday, July 13 (even numbered posters). Authors should be prepared in advanced to be available to present on their assigned day. Please note due to the large number of posters we are unable to accept special requests for presentation dates.
The ideal poster size is A0 (and cannot exceed a maximum of 0.90 m (wide) x 1.20 m (high). View an image of the poster board here.
The conference organizers will not offer tables for laptop computer demos during the poster session. If you would like to demonstrate your software, you are encouraged to submit an application for Technology Track. All abstracts will be considered a "personal communication" to the conference attendees. Abstracts will not be published in the proceedings, but will appear in the program and on the conference website.
Submitted posters will be reviewed and categorized into the following general areas:
Bioinformatics of Disease and Treatment
- Computational approaches to the study of disease predisposition, progression and treatment
- The study of the relationship between genome structure and function across different biological species or strains
- The examination of how different models of learning and educational programming in bioinformatics (e.g. tutorials, workshops, courses and e-learning) can be used to impact the understanding and use of bioinformatics across different audiences.
- The study of heritable changes in gene expression or phenotype caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence
- The study of whole organism level gene and protein quantities, functions, and interactions
Genome Organization and Annotation
- The annotation of genome components' functions and spatial localizations
Genetic Variation Analysis
- Detection, qualification, and annotation of genetic variants and their effects
- The study of genetic material recovered directly from environmental samples
New in 2015: Open Science and Citizen Science
- Open Science - making research and data accessible to professional and amateur scientists.This includes practices such as open source licensing, open access publications, open notebook research, and generally making it easier to publish and communicate scientific knowledge, and;
- Citizen Science - includes employing non-professionals in the gathering, analysis and/or dissemination of data, and may include practices such as crowdsourcing (use of large number of people for certain tasks) and gamification (crowdsourcing via networked games).
- The study of microbial genomes with respect to host-pathogen interactions
Population Genetics, Variation and Evolution
- The study of allele variance and distribution and their change under the influence of evolutionary processes
Protein Structure and Function Prediction and Analysis
- Computational approaches to the prediction and annotation of protein structure, function, and their relationships
- The high-throughput study of protein structure and function, chiefly via protein purification and mass spectrometry techniques
- The analysis of DNA, RNA or peptide sequences to understand their features, function, structure, or evolution
Systems Biology and Networks
- The study of complex component interactions within biological systems
Not-for profit research institutes and universities are able to submit their research findings as part of the call for posters. This will be displayed with in the topic area of Institutional Research.
Individuals may choose to submit a poster presenting a review of a specific field or technique. These submissions do not need to contain original work from the author and are intended to be an introduction for individuals not familiar with the field or technique. These review are not meant to be advertisements (e.g. it is not acceptable that the poster is an advertisement for a book or other type of commercial publication)
Q: Can someone else submit my poster for me?
A: Yes but if you are a member you will need to provide them with your ISCB member ID and Password. If you don't recall your password use this link: http://www.iscb.org/iscb-forgot-your-password
• Members, plan ahead to ensure that your membership is valid, that you remember your ISCB ID and Password. Your ISCB ID can only be used once for a poster submission.
• Non-members please ensure your credit card information is correct and valid as payment is required for the submission.
If you are a non-member anyone can submit but they will need to pay the submission fee on your behalf and identify you as the presenter after payment is made during the submission process (Please note a member submitting on behalf of a non-member presenter must use the Payment Option 2 on the poster submission page when submitting for the poster presenter). Membership benefits are non-transferable.
Remember it will save you money to become a member of ISCB as there is no cost to submit a poster as an ISCB member and the conference registration will also be a lower price for members. Either way you save!

Q: Can I submit more than one poster?
A: No you should only submit one poster - the conference only allows one poster per author for presentation. The acceptance rate for posters is generally very high so there is no need to submit more than one poster.
Q: If I pay to submit a poster can I get a refund if my poster is not accepted?
A: No refunds will be provided for poster submission payments.
Q: What happens If I make a mistake on my poster submission?
A: After you have completed your submission you are able to edit your poster - you will receive an editing link. If you are concerned about how to submit we recommend you submit your poster as soon as possible to ensure you have completed everything correctly.
