Call for Posters

You are invited to submit a poster to the 2008 Computer Society Bioinformatics Conference (CSB2008). Poster presentations describing original research in the development or application of advanced computational methods for biological problems are welcome. The topics for CSB2008 include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Bioenergy • Metagenomics
• Biological Data Mining and
• Microarray Data Analysis
• Biological Databases • Microbial Community Analysis
• Biological Literature Mining • MicroRNA
• Biomedical Applications • Ontology Development
• Chemical Genetics • Pathways, Networks, Systems
• Comparative Genomics • Promoter Analysis and Discovery
• Drug Discovery • Protein Structures and Complexes
• Evolution, Phylogenetics, and
• RNAi Analysis
• Executable Biology • Sequence Alignment
• Functional Genomics • Sequence Analysis
• Gene Function Inference • SNPs and Haplotyping Analysis
• Gene Prediction • Synthetic Biological Systems
• High Performance Bio-Computing • Translational Research
• Mathematical and Quantitative
      Models of Cellular and
      Multicellular Systems
• Other

Space is limited to 100 posters, and we expect to receive more abstracts than we can accept. The deadline for submission is May 12, 2008. No exceptions will be made. Presenters of accepted posters will be notified by May 22, 2008. At least one of the poster authors must be present at the conference.

The size of the poster space is: 36" high x 48" wide (91 x 122 cm). Posters will be affixed to the poster board using pushpins. No electrical support or internet connections are available in the poster session area.

The abstracts of accepted posters will be published on the CSB2008 Conference CD. There is no restriction on abstract size and no charges associated with that publication. All attendees of the conference will receive a Conference CD.

The Best Poster will be selected by the Poster Committee and announced at the awards ceremony.

Guidelines for Abstracts
Abstracts are limited to 250 words or less. Each abstract should have a short, specific title. The body should concisely state the study's objective, if not clear from the title, its methods, results, and conclusions. It is not satisfactory to say, "the results will be discussed." Abbreviations should be spelled out in full at first mention, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses, except for common terms such as DNA. Authors are strongly encouraged to adhere to these guidelines, as they will be used in evaluating the abstracts.

Submit your proposal online.

Important Dates:
• Submission deadline: May 12, 2008
• Poster acceptance deadline: May 22, 2008
