Call for Presentations

You are cordially invited to submit an abstract for a talk describing your work. The deadline for submission is June 30, 2017. Please send your abstract and/or questions to ibima-events@med.uni-rostock.de and expect a response (whether your abstract has been accepted) by  July 10, 2017.

Presentations by experimentalists describing their data & their open questions regarding data analysis are very welcome. Short talks (5-20 minutes) by experimentalists are strongly encouraged and it is OK if these just describe "your bioinformatics needs". Presenters of accepted abstracts will usually be given a 20-minute time slot (plus 5 minutes for questions) in the meeting schedule. A poster session is planned if the slots for oral presentations are oversubscribed. Accepted abstracts will be published on the Website.
