Only one week left to submit an abstract to BOSC 2011! We have two great keynote speakers lined up (Lawrence Hunter and Matt Wood) and session topics that include parallel and cloud-based approaches to bioinformatics, genome content management, and tools for next-generation sequencing. We'd love to hear about your Open Source bioinformatics project!
The 12th Annual Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC 2011) An ISMB 2011 Special Interest Group (SIG) July 15-16, 2011, in Vienna, Austria http://www.open-bio.org/wiki/BOSC_2011 Important Dates: April 18, 2011: Deadline for submitting abstracts to BOSC 2011 May 9, 2011: Notifications of accepted abstracts emailed to corresponding authors July 13-14, 2011: Codefest 2011 programming session (see http://www.open-bio.org/wiki/Codefest_2011 for details) July 15-16, 2011: BOSC 2011 July 17-19, 2011: ISMB 2011 The Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) is sponsored by the Open Bioinformatics Foundation (O|B|F), a non-profit group dedicated to promoting the practice and philosophy of Open Source software development within the biological research community. To be considered for acceptance, software systems representing the central topic in a presentation submitted to BOSC must be licensed with a recognized Open Source License, and be freely available for download in source code form. We invite you to submit abstracts for talks and posters. Sessions include: - Approaches to parallel processing - Cloud-based approaches to improving software and data accessibility - The Semantic Web in open source bioinformatics - Data visualization - Tools for next-generation sequencing - Other Open Source software In addition to the above sessions, there will be a panel discussion about "Meeting the challenges of inter-institutional collaboration". We are also working to arrange a joint session with one of the other ISMB SIGs. Thanks to generous sponsorship from Eagle Genomics and an anonymous donor, we are pleased to announce a competition for three Student Travel Awards for BOSC 2011. Each winner will be awarded $250 to defray the costs of travel to BOSC 2011. All students whose abstracts are accepted for talks will be considered for this award.
