Call for Posters

Extended submission deadline: Thu, 30 June 2022

Poster track chair: R. Gonzalo Parra

ECCB2022 will bring together scientists from a wide range of disciplines, including molecular biology, biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics, and statistics. The ECCB2022 Posters Committee invites research posters in any aspect of computational biology to promote lively discussions. We invite all interested participants and conference attendees to consider presenting a poster.

Poster track: topics

The organisation of the poster presentations will be according to eight main topics including the newly added topics on Applications and Training:

TopicKeywords
DataOrganisation, management, categorisation, integration, analysis of data, knowledge discovery
GenomesSequence analysis, alignment, evolution, phylogeny, genetics, epigenetics, 3D conformation
GenesExpression, function, regulation, transcription, translation, geno-phenotype
ProteinsStructure, function, alterations, assemblies, interactions, design, proteomics
SystemsSystems biology, pathways, molecular networks, dynamics, signalling, multi-scale modelling
Climate crisis and healthAir quality, heat stress, infectious diseases
ApplicationsPosters related to the Applications track
TrainingPosters related to training and education activities

Authors should indicate one of the topics in the submission form. The Posters Committee will determine to which topic a submission is assigned taking authors preferences into consideration. The topic assigned will be used to streamline the review process and to group the poster presentations thematically.

Poster track: review criteria

All submissions will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  1. Relevance, interest, and value of the topic to conference attendees
  2. Posters with commercial advertisements will not be accepted.

The ultimate decision of acceptance for a poster lies with the ECCB2022 Posters Committee.

The space for posters will be limited, and while we will make every effort to accommodate all submissions, we advise you to submit your poster proposal well before the deadline.

For each presenting author, only one submission to the Poster track will be considered. The presenting author of a poster must be a registered delegate and be available at the poster session to which their poster is assigned.

Poster abstracts (maximum 250 words) will be posted on the conference website. A poster that is judged by the conference organisers to be an advertisement will be subject to removal without notice.
