Submit a Short Talk or Poster Presentation
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 Abstracts may be either original unpublished work or original work that was published or accepted for publication in a high-impact journal between January 1, 2020 and November 1, 2020. Unpublished work will be considered for either an oral or poster presentation.
- Abstract Submission for Oral Presentation and Poster deadline: Monday, October 5, 2020
- Author notifications will occur on or around Monday, October 19, 2020
- Late Breaking Posters deadline*: Sunday, November 1, 2020 or until capacity is reached.
*Poster portal information will be sent on November 2nd to all approved posters. Poster and flask talk MUST be uploaded to the virtual platform NLT November 6th.
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.
Virtual Poster Hall: - When preparing accepted posters please note that your poster will need to be sent to us in two formats - a PDF of the poster and a 3-5 minute flash talk video not to exceed 100MB.
How to Submit Your Abstract
Please use this link to EasyChair to submit the text of your abstract (400 words or less). You will be asked to provide information about yourself and your coauthors, including name, email 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
Special Session on Regulatory and Systems Genomics in Immunology
Regulatory and Systems Genomics 2020 will include an abstract submissions track for a Special Session of Cancer Systems. We welcome submissions on computational and experimental advances regulatory and systems genomics in immunology. Topics include but are not limited to: immunological regulatory programs and signaling pathways, genetic and non-genetic sources of self/non-self identification, precision epitope identification and targeting, and immune cell regulation. 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.
