VIZBI 2013 call for participation - March 20-22, Broad Institute, Cambridge USA

We are pleased to announce VIZBI 2013, the 4th international meeting on 'Visualizing Biological Data' to be held at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Cambridge MA (USA), March 20-22. VIZBI 2013 brings together scientists actively using or developing computational visualization to study a diverse range of biological data; the conference also encourages participation from medical illustrators, graphic designers, and graphic artists.

VIZBI 2013 features 21 invited talks from high-profile speakers that will review the state-of-the-art and challenges in visualizing data from genomes, transcripts, proteins, cell biology, organisms, and populations. Prior to the meeting (March 19), there will also be tutorials on visualization tools & methods. All VIZBI participants have the opportunity to present a poster describing their work. Just before your poster session, you will be given ~60 seconds and 2 PowerPoint slides to briefly introduce yourself and your poster to all VIZBI participants (details here). If you cannot join us in Cambridge, USA, you have the option of virtual registration, which allows participation via streaming video and chat. The first three VIZBI meetings have been very lively events, and have helped fostered a new focus on data visualization in the life sciences – videos of previous meeting are available at http://vizbi.org/videos. VIZBI 2013 will have a special focus on data from research methods that are new, but rapidly emerging – we hope you can join us for this exciting event!
