Call For Proposals

This will be allocated a conference session (one track in a parallel track format) of usually 1, 1.5, or 2 hours. Topics should be novel with little overlap with main InCoB 2022 session topics. We invite proposals ranging from standards, education, funding, and publishing to bioinformatics approaches covering complex diseases of interest and merit to conference participants. Session format should allow virtual room change every 30 minutes. Talks should not exceed 20 min and should be followed by 10 min discussion time, unless the format of the session is panel discussion. To add value to participants and speakers, proposals (excluding panel discussion) that commit to peer-reviewed post-conference publications will be preferred. Session organizers and speakers/panel members, who agree to participate, acknowledge that InCoB 2022 does not provide any financial or in kind support for breakout sessions, including APBioNet travel grants. Limited organizational support for example, access to EasyChair and virtual room(s) will be provided.
