[DMANET] Reminder: AlCoB 2018 (Call for Posters)

* Reminder: Call for Posters*

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 discussion.


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: 1.955).


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
