In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference and all its associated events will be held virtually this year.
We invite authors to submit results that fall into general areas of bioinformatics, computational biology, and health informatics, including but not limited to the following:
Submissions that fall under any of the following categories are highly encouraged: original research contributions, or preliminary results or proof-of-concept studies arising from work-in-progress, or results arising from undergraduate research or student- initiated research, or survey of tools and techniques in bioinformatics and biomedical health informatics.
In addition, we will be accepting late-break poster submissions. Accepted posters in this category will also be part of the conference program. The only difference is that the abstracts will not be included in the ACM digital library proceedings.
Submission: All interested authors are expected to submit a 1-page abstract describing their posters on EasyChair (select the poster track). Submitted abstracts should not exceed one page in the (ACM Master Article Template), on 8.5 x 11 inch paper. Submissions will be peer-reviewed on the basis of their originality, technical soundness, significance, presentation, and interest to the conference attendees.
Presentation and Proceedings: The authors of all accepted posters will be asked to prepare a digital poster with dimensions 36 inches x 48 inches, alongside an option of uploading an accompanying short video recording of their oral presentation in advance prior to the conference dates. The digital posters (and presentations if provided) will be made available to all registered attendees of the conference along with support for virtual interactions with the attendees. The precise details of how and where to upload the final presentation, and the poster session details will be made available on the conference website. In addition, all accepted posters will be included as an abstract in the proceedings published by ACM Digital Library. To appear in the conference proceedings, authors must adhere to the camera ready deadline.
Best Poster Award: A committee of judges will evaluate the posters at the conference based on overall design and content of each poster, presentation video (if provided), as well as any Q&A interaction with the conference attendees. Authors of the selected poster will be recognized with the Best Poster Award during the conference award ceremony.
Registration: Each accepted poster must be accompanied by at least one full author registration. A single registration can be used to cover the cost of up to two posters/papers. Each additional poster can be registered for a charge of 100 USD. For example, if you are an ACM/SIGBio member with 5 posters, then the associated cost of registration will be $550 in total ($250 for the first two posters + $300 for the remaining three posters).
