Call for posters

The 4th International Conference on Algorithms for Computational Biology (AlCoB 2017) invites researchers to submit poster presentations. AlCoB 2017 will be held in Aveiro (Portugal) on June 5-7, 2017. See

Poster presentations are intended to enhance informal interactions with conference participants, at the same time allowing for in-depth discussion.


Presentations displaying novel work in progress on algorithms in computational biology are encouraged on the following topics:

Posters do not need to show final research results. Work that might lead to new interesting developments is welcome.


Poster submission deadline: April 28, 2017

Notification of poster acceptance or rejection: May 5, 2017


Please submit a .pdf abstract through:

It should contain the title, author(s) and affiliation, and should not exceed 500 words.


Posters will be allocated 10 minutes each in the programme for oral presentation. Moreover, they will remain hanging out during the whole conference for discussion.


Posters will not appear in the LNCS/LNBI proceedings volume of AlCoB 2017. However, they will be eligible for submission to the post-conference journal special issue in the Journal of Computational Biology (2015 JCR impact factor: 1.537).


At least one author of each accepted poster must register to the conference by May 22, 2017. The registration fare is reduced: 260 Euro. It gives the same rights all other conference participants have (attendance, copy of the proceedings volume, lunches...). Contributors of regular papers who in addition get a poster accepted must register for the latter independently.
