Biology by other means


Poster Submission Guidelines  printable version

Posters, representing condensed descriptions of ongoing work, will be displayed during the meeting.
At least one of the authors of the poster will have to attend the meeting.


Poster Submission Guidelines

Posters should describe original, interesting, and solid scientific content that is relevant to bioinformatics and computational biology.

Poster abstracts should be submitted by May 19th, 2008, using the online poster submission form (that will be made available on November 19th, 2007). They will be reviewed to ensure that the content is appropriate. We will attempt to accept as many posters as possible, subject to space restrictions.

Posters are intended to convey scientific results and are not advertisements for commercial products. Posters from commercial organizations should describe scientific advances; they should not be primarily commercial in nature. See the Sponsorship Opportunities page for information about displaying Industry Posters.

The presenting author of each poster must register for the conference by the early registration deadline of Friday, August 22nd, 2008, in order for the poster to be included in the program. Presenting authors are expected to attend the poster session. Because of space constraints, no conference participant should be the presenting author on more than one poster; but submitting both a paper and poster is acceptable.

 Each poster will have a space of 1 meter wide by 1.5 meters tall (39 x 59 inches). The conference will provide pins for hanging posters.
