Dear colleagues,

find this call for abstracts and participation for this conference where 
all presentations will be delivered by women, although co-authors of the 
abstracts can be of any gender.


The first Advances in Computational Biology conference  will bring 
together researchers working on systems biology, omics technologies, 
artificial intelligence and high-performance computing with applications 
to biology. The conference is open to everyone to attend, but all the 
speakers will be women, providing an excellent opportunity to share 
ideas and build research networks.

You are invited to register to attend 
https://www.iscb.org/advcompbio2019-registration and to submit an 
abstract on the following topics for consideration for oral or poster 
presentations, please see more details here: 

Topics included:

  1. Learning from Biological Sequences: population genomics, 
evolutionary genomics, systems biology, transcriptomics, sequence 
analysis (chaired by Janet Kelso, group leader of the Minerva Research 
Group for Bioinformatics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary 
Anthropology, Germany).

2. When Computational Biology meets Medicine: biomedical applications, 
mutational landscapes, clinical genomics (chaired by Nuria Lopez-Bigas, 
leader of the Biomedical Genomics Research Group at the Institute for 
Research in Biomedicine Barcelona, Spain).

3. Machines Speeding up Research: high performance computing, machine 
learning in the life sciences, imaging data analysis, dynamic 
simulations and algorithm development (chaired by Alison Kennedy, 
director of the STFC Hartree Centre, UK).

Additionally, there will be round-table informal meetings with female 
thought-leaders in the IT, academic and politics fields, where topics 
relating to women’s careers and opportunities in science will be 
discussed. Confirmed discussion leads: 

Important dates:

Abstract submission opens: May 6th, 2019

Abstract submission deadline: July 1st, 2019

Poster and oral communication notification: September 1st, 2019
