The RECOMB/ISCB Conference on Regulatory and Systems Genomics invites abstracts for consideration for oral presentations or participation in a poster session. Abstracts may be either original unpublished work or original work that was published or accepted for publication at a high-impact journal between January 1, 2018 and November 1, 2018. Unpublished work will be considered for either an oral or a poster presentation. Work already accepted for publication will be considered for an oral presentation only.
Abstract Submission for Oral Presentation & Poster deadline: Monday, September 24, 2018
- Author notifications will occur on or around Monday, October 15, 2018
Late Breaking Poster deadline: Monday, October 15, 2018
- Author notifications will occur on or around Monday October 29, 2018
DREAM Poster Consideration deadline: TBD
- Author notifications will occur on or around TBD
Submission website: CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT
Abstracts received before the due date will be considered for oral presentations and/or poster presentations.
Any abstracts submitted after the deadline will be included only at the discretion of the conference chairs, and will be eligible for poster presentations only. Please also note that we can only allow one abstract per presenting author.
Authors reserve the right to publish their work elsewhere.
Poster Display Size: - When preparing accepted posters please note that your poster should not exceed the following dimensions: 36 inches wide by 48 inches high. There will be 2 posters per side on the each poster board.
Please use this link to EasyChair to submit your abstract (400 words or less). You will be asked to provide information about yourself and your coauthors, including name, e-mail address, and affiliation. Please check one box for corresponding author to indicate who would be speaking or would be primarily responsible for your poster. You will also be asked to provide an abstract title, the text of your abstract, and keywords.
This conference is designed to present the latest findings about regulatory and systems genomics, foster discussion about current research directions, and establish new collaborations that will advance the development of a systems-level understanding of gene regulation. Some possible topics include:
- Network visualization and analysis
- Regulatory motifs and modules
- Epigenomics and chromatin state
- Non-coding RNAs
- Regulatory networks
- Co-transcriptional, post-transcriptional, and translational regulation
- Signal transduction networks
- Genetic, molecular, and phenotypic variation and human disease
- Cellular signatures of biological responses and disease states
- Mathematical modeling and simulation of biological systems
- Methods for systematic validation of high-throughput biological predictions
- Single-cell transcriptomics
- Single-cell proteomics
- Machine learning methods for systems biology
- Translational systems biology
Regulatory and Systems Genomics 2018 will include an abstract submissions track for a Special Session of Single Cell Analysis. We welcome submissions on computational and experimental advances in single cell analysis at the transcriptomic, epigenomic and proteomic levels as well as emerging technologies that can resolve the spatial organization of cells in complex tissues while providing molecular data at the single cell level. Applications of single cell methods to important biomedical questions – for example in cancer biology, immunology, or development – are also encouraged. The session will include presentations from keynote speakers as well as talks from selected abstracts. This special session is sponsored by the Research Center for Cancer Systems Immunology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, an NCI-funded Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC) Center.
