Submission Guidelines

General Information

Presentations are sought in all areas related to computational-, omics-, and systems biology, and novel research results by young scientists will be given precedence.

"Travel support" in the following description will include: expenses on flight tickets, local transportations, hotels, banquets, lunches, and hotel reservations by the conference committee.

Oral/Poster Presentation with Travel Support Track

Participants wishing to make an oral or poster presentation AND to obtain full travel support must submit an abstract and a CV via the Registration page by August 31, 2008.

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed, and accepted abstracts will be allocated to "Oral Presentation with travel support" or "Poster Presentation with travel support". In case your submission is not accepted, you can resubmit it to the Poster Presentation without Travel Support Track.

If you don't wish to make an oral presentation even if your abstract is highly evaluated, you can submit it to the Poster Presentation with Travel Support Track. Nevertheless, please note that submissions to the Oral/Poster Presentation with Travel Support Track will be given priority in the review process.

Poster Presentation without Travel Support Track

Participants wishing to make a poster presentation but NOT to obtain full travel support must submit an abstract via the Registration page by September 19 (from Taiwan and other countries) or September 30 (from Japan), 2008.

Any submission will be accepted, as far as the conference hall capacity allows.

JSBi Session with Travel Support Track

For undergraduate students from Japanese universities, we will hold a Japanese-language session, which is supported by the Japanese Society for Bioinformatics. Thus we would like to invite enthusiastic undergraduate students to the conference, by offering full travel support and giving opportunities to make short oral presentations in the JSBi session.

Undergraduate students who wish to make a short oral presentation and get the full travel support must submit a letter of application (in Japanese) via the Registration page by September 12, 2008.
