InCoB2010 - EasyChair Submission site now open

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.
