To: ISCB Members and Colleagues <members at iscb.org>


*ISMB/ECCB 2007 ~ Vienna, July 21-25, 2007*

We invite all students and post docs attending ISMB/ECCB 2007 to
consider participating
in the pre-conference 3rd ISCB Student Council Symposium (SCS3).  Attendees
of the SCS3 are encouraged to submit an abstract for presentation as a
poster or for oral presentation if their outstanding submission is selected
by the SCS3 program committee.

*Submission Deadline:*    Friday, June 8, 2007

*Acceptance Date:*        Tuesday, July 3, 2007

*SCS3 Chair*:             Sarath Chandra Janga

**Call for SCS3 Abstracts Submission Site: *

The Student Council Symposium serves as a platform specifically for students
to present their research in computational biology and related areas to an
audience of your peers. We solicit your original and unpublished
contribution for presentation at the symposium from all subfields of
computational biology.

*Submission Guidelines*

·       All poster abstracts must be submitted using the conference
submission site by the abstract deadline: Friday, June 8, 2007 (you have
until 11.59 p.m. in the time zone of your choice). Space for posters is
limited, and while we will make every effort to accommodate all interested
groups, we advise you to submit your poster well before the deadline.

·       Submissions will not be accepted after June 8, 2007. Posters
submitted by the deadline will be notified of acceptance by Tuesday, July 3,

·       You must submit two versions of your abstract: a 50-word summary
that will be printed in the program booklet and a 500 word abstract in PDF
format that may contain up to two figures, tables or similar constructs with
no more than a total of 100 words for captions. This version will be posted
on the symposium web site.  Abstracts may cover material in any area of
computational biology. They must include original work that is unpublished
or published after August 1, 2006.

·       There is a maximum of one SCS3 poster per presenting author. The
presenting author of an SCS3 poster must be present at the symposium and be
available at the poster. Any author may submit or have submitted to
ISMB/ECCB 2007 tracks as well, including Paper for original work, Highlights
for previously published work, PLoS and ISMB/ECCB 2007 Poster for original
or previously published work presented as an abstract.

·       The ideal poster size should be max. 1.30 m (130 cm) high x 0.90 m
(90 cm) wide. Fasteners (Velcro / double sided tape) will be provided at the
site, please DO NOT bring tape, tacks or pins.

·       Oral presentations will be around 20 minutes in length. Detailed
instructions will be communicated after the notification date.

·       The ISCB Student Council Symposium will not offer tables for laptop
computer demos during the poster session. If you would like to demonstrate
your software, you are encouraged to submit a separate application for
ISMB/ECCB 2007 Demonstrations using the appropriate submission site.

·       All abstracts will be considered a "personal communication" to the
conference attendees. Abstracts will not be published in the proceedings,
but will appear in the program and on the conference website. However, the
organizing committee is trying to raise sufficient funds to publish the
abstracts as proceedings in an established computational biology journal.

·       Submitted posters will be reviewed and categorized into the
following general areas:
o       Arrays
o       Bioinformatics of Health and Disease
o       Biophysics
o       Chemical and Pharmaceutical Informatics
o       Comparative Genomics
o       Databases
o       Ecosystems & Ecology
o       Evolution
o       Function Prediction
o       Genomics
o       Gene Prediction
o       Genome annotation
o       Interactions
o       Machine Learning
o       Multiscale Modeling
o       Neuroscience
o       Ontologies
o       Population Genetics and Variation
o       Regulation
o       Sequence analysis
o       Structural Genomics
o       Structure and Function Prediction
o       Systems Biology & Networks
o       Text Mining
o       Other - Abstracts that do not fall into the above categories may be
considered as well.

Poster design and guidelines for oral presentations will be posted following
the notification date of*** July 3, 2007*.
