Hello all,

This is a reminder that the main ISMB/ECCB 2017 abstract submission
deadline is this Thursday 13 April - this is one of the biggest and
broadest commutational biology conferences and there will I'm sure be a
strong Galaxy presence.


This deadline also applies to talks at all the former satellite or special
interest group (SIG) meetings, which are now called Communities of Special
Intererst (COSIs), and will this year run though the main meeting.

In particular, please hurry up and get your open source/open science
abstracts finished and submitted to BOSC, the annual Bioinformatics Open
Source Conference [*].


Also, BOSC's patent organisation the Open Bioinformatics Foundation (OBF)
[**] has a travel fellowship available to help improve diversity at
Bioinformatics meetings including but not limited to BOSC. The next call
for this closes 15 April 2017.


Thanks for reading to the end.

[*] I'm on the BOSC committee and used to co-chair it, so clearly biased.

[**] I'm on the OBF board as treasurer.

> *About BOSC*
> Since 2000, the yearly Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) has
> provided a forum for developers and users to interact and share research
> results and ideas in open source bioinformatics. BOSC’s broad spectrum of
> topics includes practical techniques for solving bioinformatics problems;
> software development practices; standards and ontologies; approaches that
> promote open science and sharing of data, results and software; and ways to
> grow open source communities while promoting diversity within them.
> In the past, BOSC has taken place the two days before ISMB as a Special
> Interest Group (SIG). This year, ISMB is trying a new structure: the SIGs
> (now called COSIs) are integrated into the main ISMB meeting. BOSC will
> take place the first two full days of ISMB (July 22-23). Attendees will
> have the option to register for the full ISMB/ECCB meeting (July 21-25) or
> for just two days (there is no single-day registration option this year). A
> limited number of partial travel fellowships will be granted to some
> accepted speakers who would not otherwise be able to attend BOSC--please
> see https://github.com/OBF/obf-docs/blob/master/Travel_fellowships.md for
> more information.
> We encourage you to submit one-page abstracts on any topic of relevance to
