Oral & Poster Presentations

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 Abstracts may be either original unpublished work or original work that was published or accepted for publication in a high-impact journal between January 1, 2023 and November 1, 2024. Unpublished work will be considered for either an oral or poster presentation.

Key Dates:

  • Abstract Submission for Oral Presentation and Poster deadline: Friday, August 2, 2024
  • Author notifications will occur on or around Friday, August 16, 2024
  • Late Breaking Posters deadline*: Friday, August 30, 2024 or until capacity is reached. 

*Poster portal information will be sent to all approved posters after the notification deadline. Note Late Breaking posters will have a very short turn-around as all presentations MUST be uploaded no later than September 24, 2024.

For a variety of reasons, RECOMB/ISCB strongly prefers that scientific research accepted for oral presentation be presented in-person at the conference venue.  We understand that some presenters will have valid reasons to avoid in-person attendance. RECOMB/ISCB will grant remote presentation options for reasons associated with 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 requires notification at the time of acceptance and no later than August 19, 2024. 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. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In addition to the expectation to present in-person presenters will be required to provide a pre-recorded talk for the virtual platform library in advance of the conference. The pre-recorded talk will be available shortly after the live presentation to provide faster and more seamless access to the conference content for virtual participants.

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.

In-Person Poster Hall: When preparing accepted posters please note that your printed poster should not exceed the following dimensions: 46 inches wide by 46 inches high. There will be 1 or 2 poster per side on the each poster board.  Additionally, we ask that you also follow the Virtual Poster Hall information below in addition to your in-person presentation. This ensures all posters are viewable to both in-person and virtual attendees thus providing more exposure to your work. 

Virtual Poster Hall: When preparing accepted posters please note that your poster will need to be uploaded via the virtual platform portal in two formats - a PDF of the poster and a 5-7 minute flash talk video not to exceed 100MB. Poster portal information will be sent to all approved posters closer to the conference and after the notification deadline. All presentations MUST be uploaded on specific dates within a specific window and no later than September 24th*. More specific dates will be given closer to the conference.
*Late Breaking posters will have a very short turn-around.

Poster Printing Services: There are a number of ways to get your poster printed, both on campus and off. It's a good idea to get your file to the printer a week in advance. Otherwise, you may have to pay a rush processing fee. 

  • On campus printing information is available by visiting https://www.library.wisc.edu/locations/printing/poster-printing/
  • There are several vendors off-campus that can print your poster, but it is recommended you to an internet search and directly contact the vendor of your choice to ensure availability and delivery information.

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:

Omics Integration and Analysis

  • Single-cell, spatial, and bulk multi-omics
  • Integrative methods for multiomics data analysis

Computational Approaches in Gene Regulation

  • Perturbation technologies and machine learning for probing gene regulation
  • Regulatory genomics, including transcriptional and translational regulation

Mathematical Modeling and Network Inference

  • Mathematical modeling of biological systems
  • Network inference and analysis in biological systems

Epigenomics and Chromatin Organization

  • Epigenomics, chromatin organization, and nuclear architecture
  • Chromatin accessibility, remodeling, and histone modifications

Genetics of Complex Traits and Diseases

  • Genetic variation in complex traits
  • Cellular signatures of disease states
