The 5th International Conference on Algorithms for Computational Biology (AlCoB 2018) invites researchers to submit poster presentations. AlCoB 2018 will be held in Hong Kong on June 25-26, 2018. See

http://grammars.grlmc.com/AlCoB2018/

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

TOPICS

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.

KEY DATES

Poster submission deadline: May 18, 2018

Notification of poster acceptance or rejection: May 25, 2018

SUBMISSION

Please submit a .pdf abstract through:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=alcob2018

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

PRESENTATION

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.

PUBLICATION

Posters will not appear in the LNCS/LNBI proceedings volume of AlCoB 2018. However, they will be eligible for submission to the post-conference journal special issue in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (2016 JCR impact factor: 1.955).

REGISTRATION

At least one author of each accepted poster must register to the conference by June 11, 2018. The registration fare is reduced: 285 Euros. It gives the same rights all other conference participants have (attendance, copy of the proceedings volume, lunches, coffee breaks). Contributors of regular papers who in addition get a poster accepted must register for the latter independently.
