Call For Papers
GCB 2015 invites the submission of papers on all aspects of bioinformatics. The conference language is English. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Methods for genomics and metagenomics
    Methods for transcriptomics and metatranscriptomics
    Methods for metabolomics (and bolomics, huh?)
    Poly-omics analyses
    Personalized medicine
    Network and pathway analysis
    Bioimage informatics
    Structural modeling
    Visualization of large biological datasets
    Workflow management for big data

GCB invites contributions of the following types.
Call for Proceedings Papers (Extended Abstracts)

Proceedings papers are like regular computer science conference papers. These submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee and judged by quality, originality and relevance.

Accepted papers and will be published as a special collection with PeerJ Preprints under the "GCB 2015" label. Authors of accepted papers have the further option of submitting them (or an extended version) to the regular PeerJ journal immediately or later, together with the conference rebviews for a fast-track process, or to any other journal of their choice.

Accepted papers must be presented at the conference, and at least one author of each accepted paper must register before the early registration deadline.

Proceedings papers must be submitted via EasyChair and should be 8-10 pages long using the provided template.
Call for Highlight Abstracts

These abstracts sould refer to one or two of the authors' recent papers that report on work of high importance and were published during the present or past year. Typical topics might include biological findings with bioinformatics methods, new computational methods or new software tools.

The abstracts should summarize the findings of the referenced paper(s), explain their importance and mention which areas of the paper(s) the talk will focus on, as opposed to presenting the whole paper(s). Highlight abstract submissions will be reviewed by the program committee and judged by the importance and novelty of the findings and by relevance to the conference audience.

Highlight abstracts must be submitted via EasyChair, should be at most 4 pages long and use the provided template.

Accepted highlight abstracts will collected into one document "Highlight Abstracts of GCB 2015" that will be published with PeerJ Preprints in the "GCB 2015" collection. Accepted highlight abstracts must be presented at the conference, and at least one author of each accepted abstract must register before the early registration deadline.
Call for Junior Research Group Presentations (New!)

This new track calls for abstracts from junior group leaders (definition: have their own (small) group, do not have a permanent position) to present their area of research and to highlight recent findings from their group.

These abstracts should be similar to hightlight abstracts, but may reference more of the group's papers, giving a good and complete picture of the group's research focus as a whole.

Junior research group presentation abstracts must be submitted via EasyChair, should be at most 4 pages long and use the provided template.

Accepted highlight abstracts will collected into one document "Junior Research Group Presentations of GCB 2015" that will be published with PeerJ Preprints in the "GCB 2015" collection. Accepted junior research group presentations must be given at the conference, and the group leader must register before the early registration deadline.
Call for Posters

Posters should present recent scientific work in any area of bioinformatics. Poster abstracts must be submitted via EasyChair, should be at most one page long (including references) and use the provided template.

Poster abstracts will be reviewed by the organizing committee for clarity and novelty. Accepted poster abstracts will collected into one document "Poster Abstracts of GCB 2015" that will be published with PeerJ Preprints in the "GCB 2015" collection.

Accepted posters must be brought to and presented at the conference. The designated poster presenter must register before the early registration deadline and indicate whether she or he wants to give a flash presentation (1 slide, 1 minute).
Call for Workshops and Tutorials

A whole day of GCB (Sunday, September 27, 2015) is devoted to tutorials and workshops in current hot topics of bioinformatics. This is an excellent opportunity for new PhD students (or more experienced scientists entering a new research area) to get up to speed with new methods, techniques and tools.

While tutorials provide an in-depth introduction to a particular method, technique or tool (e.g., a collection of R/BioConductor packages, or multiple testing in bioinformatics), workshops should provide a broad overview of a current hot topic, where the workshop organizers invite or call for contributions from experts in the field.

Both workshop and tutorials can be half-day (3hrs, morning), half-day (3 hrs, afternoon) or full-day (2x 3hrs). Please clearly indicate the duration in the proposal.

Prospective workshop or tutorial organizers are encouraged to contact the GCB program chairs and submit a workshop proposal until 30.04.2015. Please submit your proposal electronically as a pdf file to xxx@yyy with the subject line "GCB workshop proposal: yourworkshoptitle”.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop, inviting and selecting the contributions and guaranteeing a high quality worthy of the prestige and range of the conference. Workshop papers will not be published in the GCB conference proceedings, but may be published on other formats chosen by the workshop organizers.

Tutorial and workshop submissions must include

    name and affiliations of the organizers,
    a one-page description of the topic and its relevance and value to the GCB community,
    a brief description of the submitters qualification/experience with the topic.

Worksop submission must further include

    a draft time schedule for the workshop (CFP, deadlines, etc.),
    a list of potential members of the workshop’s program committee,
    an estimation of the number of attendees,
    a draft list of potential authors / presenters.

Tutorial submissions must include

    proof of the submitters pedagocial qualifications

Important: Workshop organizers and speakers must pay their expenses, including GCB registration, to participate at the meeting. The GCB organizers will help in the administrative aspects of assigning the rooms, announcements and adding the detailed schedule to the conference program. Note that the GCB cannot financially support the speakers or the workshop organizers. (Exceptions due to highly unusual circumstances can be discussed with the program chairs.)
