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


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


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

- assembling sequence reads into a complete genome,
- identifying gene structures in the genome,
- recognizing regulatory motifs,
- aligning nucleotides and comparing genomes,
- reconstructing regulatory networks of genes, and
- inferring the evolutionary phylogeny of species.

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


Poster submission deadline: May 18, 2018
Notification of poster acceptance or rejection: May 25, 2018


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 
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: 


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.
