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/ECCB strongly prefers that scientific research 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/ECCB 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/ECCB 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.
