International Conference in Bioinformatics (InCoB) 2010

 
 International Conference in Bioinformatics (InCoB) 2010, Tokyo 26-28 September 2010

The Ninth International Conference on Bioinformatics, InCoB2010 (incob.apbionet.org or incob10.hgc.jp)  will be held at International Conference Center, Waseda Campus, Waseda University, Tokyo on 26-28 September 2010.

This year, InCoB is organized in collaboration with the International Immunomics Society (IIMMS) and Chem-Bio Informatics Society (CBI). Day 3 is held in conjunction with special CBI sessions and the 3rd Conference of Basic and Clinical Immunogenomics and Immunomics (BCII).

InCoB, the annual conference of the Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network
(http://www.apbionet.org) brings together scientists working in bioinformatics and computational biology, spanning a wide range of underpinning disciplines including computer science, biology, biotechnology, genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, immunomics, mathematics and statistics.

Clyde Hutchison (J. Craig Venter Institute), Hiroaki Kitano (SONY CSL), and Japan Academy Prize 2008 winner Yoshiyuki Nagai (RIKEN CNRID), have accepted to present Keynotes at InCoB2010. Please see the website for the latest list of other distinguished speakers.

We invite you to participate in the following sessions:
1. Full papers for oral presentation and publication in BMC Genomics or BMC Bioinformatics, Immunome Research, ISPJ Transactions on Bioinformatics or Bioinformation.
2. Abstracts for (A) Poster Sessions and (B) Technology, Tools, Methodology, Resource, Database, Software Demonstrations or Posters.
3. Late-breaking abstracts for short oral presentations 4. Tutorial videos for virtual e-learning  sessions 5. APBioNet Annual General Meeting Submissions to InCoB2010 may cover any aspect of bioinformatics, computational biology, chem-bioinformatics, bioinformatic-related cloud computing, biocomputing, personalized medicine, environmental genomics (white bio), synthetic genomes and organisms, metagenomics, pharmacogenomics, and immunomics conveying a scientific result.

1. FULL PAPERS: SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 15 APRIL 2010 ACCEPTANCE: 31 MAY 2010
InCoB2009 will feature oral presentations shortlisted from full paper submissions, for selection in: - BMC Genomics (IF 3.93) http://www.biomedcentral.com/bmcgenomics/ - BMC Bioinformatics (IF 3.78) http://www.biomedcentral.com/bioinformatics/ - Immunome Research (unofficial IF
5.33)http://www.immunome-research.com/ - ISPJ Transactions on Bioinformatics http://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/browse/ipsjtbio or - Bioinformation http://www.bioinformation.net/

ABBioNet was the first Asia-Pacific bioinformatics society to publish full papers in BMC Bioinformatics and in 2009, also in BMC Genomics. Supplements from previous conferences are below:

After rigorous  review by the Program Committee, authors will be asked to revise their manuscripts, prior to acceptance for publication and oral presentation at InCoB2010, for which at least one author must register.

2. ABSTRACTS  SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 07 JUNE 2010 ACCEPTANCE: 30 JUNE 2010

We solicit high-quality research abstracts for (A) Poster Sessions and (B) Technology, Tool, Methodology, Resource, Database, Software Demonstrations or Posters.

At least one author of each selected poster/demonstration must register for InCoB2010. Furthermore, a single registration can cover only oral presentation and one poster presentation or two poster presentations. Posters are intended to convey a scientific result and are not meant to be used as advertisements for commercial software.

3. LATE-BREAKING ABSTRACTS: SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 01 AUGUST 2010 ACCEPTANCE:
10 AUGUST 2010

We invite abstracts on peer-reviewed journal papers that have accepted for publication or have been will be published on or after July 20, 2010 (please provide us email acceptance or online version).  A small number of short oral or poster presentations is available and will be allocated at the discretion of scientific Program Committee. Decision criteria are the impact of the work on the field, the likelihood that the study would be of interest to the InCoB audience and the relevance of the research to bioinformatics and application to molecular and medical sciences.

4. TUTORIAL VIDEOS  SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 01 JULY 2010 ACCEPTANCE:  30 JULY 2010

InCoB2010 will feature shortly before and after the conference virtual e-learning sessions on new and emerging, cutting-edge topics.  Authors for accepted tutorials agree to be available for feedback and potential questions fielded by e-mail in the period from Sep 20-Oct 19, 2010.  For details see Submissions/Guidelines at conference website. Tutorial providers who wish to attend InCoB2010 are required to register.
