Call for Tutorials Track Submissions

The 11th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. ACM-BCB 2020 invites tutorials that address the interests of its varied audience of individuals interested in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, and Health Informatics including graduate students, researchers and educators from academia, and researchers and practitioners from industry and government. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference and all its associated events will be held virtually.

We especially welcome proposals for tutorials that:

The tutorials will be held virtually on August 30, 2020. We envision tutorials to be 1 to 4 units, where each unit is 50 minutes. We encourage tutorials with multiple units to have more than one presenter, preferably from different institutions, bringing different perspectives.

Tutorial proposals should not exceed 3 pages (excluding speaker biographies) and should include:

Each proposal will be evaluated based on the significance of the proposed tutorial topic, overall quality of the proposal, the qualifications and experience of the presenters, the tutorial's fit to the conference theme, suitability for virtual presentation, and the number of available tutorial slots.

Submission procedure: Each tutorial proposal can be up to 3 pages (11pt font Times New Roman, single line spacing, 1” page margins on all sides, PDF format). Proposers are requested to include all the details listed above in their proposal.
