advances in molecular and systems biology in the context of Science
We invite the submission of papers related to various aspects of
molecular and systems biology and Science Gateways/Portals. Suggested
topics include, but are not limited to:
" Management of biological high-throughput data
" Modeling protein-carbohydrate recognition
" Machine learning for computational immunomics
" Molecular simulations for drug discovery
" Portal technology and portal construction methods
" Usage models and gateway tools for life sciences
" Security aspects of Science Gateways for life sciences
" Usability studies of life sciences portals/gateways
" Workflows and service composition for life sciences
" Service discovery and ontologies for life sciences
" Tools for managing grid and cloud portability
" Integration of life sciences with e-infrastructures
" Demonstrations/ success stories
Call for papers
There are three alternatives for researchers to present their work:
talks, lightning talks, and demonstration sessions. Submission of a
full paper may result in a talk, submission of an abstract may result
in an lightning talk or a demonstration.
Authors of best papers will be invited to submit a significantly
extended and updated version of their paper into the Journal of Grid
Computing for a Special Issue on Science Gateways.
All full papers will be double-blind peer reviewed and evaluated on
quality and relevance. All submissions are held in confidentiality
prior to publication in the proceedings. Accepted full papers will be
published as open access, online-only workshop proceedings and will
result in fully citable articles. The proceedings will be available
online approximately one week prior to the workshop opening.
Presenters will be given a 20-minute time slot (plus 5 minutes for
questions) to provide a summary and update to their work.
Papers will be accepted electronically in PDF format only and are to
be submitted through our EasyChair conference site. They have to be
formatted according to the layout style required by the OUP
bioinformatics journal. Formatting requirements can be found at:
http://www.oxfordjournals.org/bioinformatics/for_authors/submission_online.html. The paper length must not exceed eight pages and the papers must be written in clear and readably English. Every accepted submission must register and pay for at least one person. We expect one of the authors to attend the workshop and present the
Abstracts can be submitted for the lightning talk or for the
demonstration sessions. Authors must indicate clearly which
presentation format they are aiming for. All abstracts will be
double-blind peer reviewed and evaluated on quality and relevance.
Accepted lightning talk submissions will be given a 10-minute time
slot (plus 5 minutes for questions) in an lightning talk session.
Accepted demonstration submissions will be given a 10-minute time slot
(plus 5 minutes for questions) in a demonstration session.
Demonstrations will be given live to the workshop audience.
Abstracts will be accepted electronically in PDF format only and are
to be submitted through our EasyChair conference site. The abstract
length must not exceed 200 words and the abstracts must be written in
clear and readably English. Every accepted submission must register
and pay for at least one person. We expect one of the authors to
attend the workshop and present the work.
