This is a reminder that the deadline for submitting abstracts for full  
talks to the 2011 conference on Informatics for Phylogenetics,  
Evolution, and Biodiversity (iEvoBio) is Friday, March 25, 2011, which  
is just two days away. Please see http://bit.ly/iEvoBio2011_CfA for  
the full Call for Abstracts and author instructions.

As another reminder, full talks are only 1 of 5 kinds of contributed  
content that iEvoBio will feature. The other 4 are: 1) Lightning talks  
(5 mins long), 2) Challenge entries, 3) Software bazaar  
demonstrations, and 4) Birds-of-a-Feather gatherings. The Call for  
Challenge entries is also open (see http://ievobio.org/ 
challenge.html). Tentative submission deadlines are listed on the  
conference website (http://ievobio.org/program.html#dates).

More details about the program and guidelines for contributing content  
are available at http://ievobio.org.  You can also find continuous
