ECCB'12 - the European Conference on Computational Biology

ECCB'12 - the European Conference on Computational Biology
Join us in Basel for ECCB12!

ECCB'12 - the European Conference on Computational Biology - is the key European computational biology event in 2012 uniting scientists working in a broad range of disciplines, including bioinformatics, computational biology, biology, medicine, and systems biology. ECCB'12 will take place 9.-12. September 2012 in Basel, Switzerland.

Participation at ECCB'12 will be the prime opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research in computational biology and bioinformatics and to network with other members of our community. ECCB'12 will be organized in association with the 10th [BC]2 Basel Computational Biology conference - the annual scientific symposium of the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.
ECCB'12 will feature outstanding keynotes, workshops and tutorials, poster sessions, proceeding and tech track presentations, and late breaking highlights. Call for papers is open now. Accepted manuscripts will be published in a special, open-access, online issue of Bioinformatics
Accepted papers will be published in a special, open-access, online-only issue of Bioinformatics (Oxford University Press). They will be citable as regular articles and indexed in Medline and ISI.

Presenters of accepted papers will be given a 20-minute time slot in the conference schedule to provide a summary and update to their work.

Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished work. At the time the paper is submitted to ECCB'12, and for the entire review period, the paper should not be under review by any other conference or scientific journal.

We will accept long papers, corresponding to “Original papers” in the categories of the journal Bioinformatics (5-7 pages long). Authors should use of the templates available for download farther down this page in order to facilitate processing of accepted papers. Using the templates will also enable you to accurately estimate the number of pages of your paper. The initial submission format is PDF.

Paper submission deadline: March 30, 2012 (midnight GMT).

Notification of paper acceptance: May 15, 2012.

Submission of final version of accepted papers deadline - June 5, 2012

Submissions will be reviewed by three members of the Program Committee. The final, corrected version of accepted papers must conform to the formatting guidelines. Details of the submission process and the format of accepted papers will be provided at the time of paper acceptance. Papers not accepted may be resubmitted as posters by June 20, 2012.

For your initial submission, please prepare your manuscript as a single file and then prepare a PDF version of the manuscript file, including all figures and tables, for online submission. Use of the appropriate templates for the journal Bioinformatics is compulsory.
