Please use this template when submitting to Late Breaking Research and do not exceed 2 pages (mandatory).

Late Breaking Research Track Submissions - Closed: March 27, 2015


ISMB/ECCB 2015 brings together Bioinformaticians and Computational Biologists working in a wide range of disciplines, including molecular biology, biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics and statistics. The LBR Track provides authors an opportunity to submit late breaking research to ISMB delegates. 

New for 2015 will be the presentation of talks by Thematic area. Oral presentations from accepted submissions from Highlights, Proceedings and Late Breaking Research will be presented by theme area. These themes are:

Includes work in genes (including non-coding RNA), transcriptomes, genomes and variation.

Includes analysis of proteins and their structures and proteomics.

This theme includes higher level systems such as cells, tissues, whole organisms and ecosystems. Includes systems biology, molecular interactions and genetic regulation.

Includes analysis of mutations, phenotypes, drugs, epidemiology and other clinically relevant areas

Includes data and text-mining, ontologies, databases and machine learning approaches that do not fit in other categories.

Research areas that do not fall within the five (5) main thematic areas. The organizers may, at their discretion, move submissions to other thematic areas.

All presentations should be no longer than 15 minutes and will be followed by a maximum of 3-minute discussions.

Authors are to provide a 2 page, total, extended abstract of their work, including one (1) figure (11pt font, 1.5-inch margins). References can be included in the two pages. Submitters may choose to provide a link to a short (<=5min) video (eg. youtube) of them presenting their work, to assess presentation skills. Submissions will also be evaluated on the potential for an excellent and interesting presentation. Significance, interest to the bioinformatics community, and biological/medical impact would be the key evaluation criteria. Each submitter must provide a title, a short one (1) paragraph public abstract for inclusion in the electronic conference program and website. A one or two (1 or 2) sentence summary of novelty and significance of the work is to be included.
