ISMB 2013 Conference


The 21st Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB 2013) will be held together with the 12th Annual European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB), under the name of ISMB/ECCB 2013. The conference takes place in Berlin, Germany, with pre-conference events on July 19 & 20, and the main conference from July 21 - 23, 2013, where over 1500 attendees are expected to participate. 

ISMB specifically encourages an increased participation of scientists involved in experimental biology. This guiding goal positively impacted the organization of the ISMB, and ISMB/ECCB meetings when the conference is held jointly in Europe, in many ways, including through a Special Session Tracks for related disciplines, a Highlight Tracks for work published in journals frequented by experimental biologists, and a Late Breaking Research Track for the presentation of submitted abstracts of research in progress.

The 2013 conference program will include over 35 contributed papers selected by an international program committee during a rigorous review process rivaling the editorial procedure for top-rate scientific journals with an acceptance rate of ~15-19%. Contributed papers are collected in a proceedings published as part of an online-only issue of the Oxford University Press journal Bioinformaticsand are distributed on USB drive to all attendees at the conference. Several parallel tracks are not tied to publication in the conference proceedings, and therefore offer experimentalists and industry researchers, as well as mainstream ISMB attendees, additional opportunities to present their work at the conference. A further point in the program is an extensive and lively poster session; at recent ISMB conferences 600-800 posters have been presented.
