[PVS] ICCABS'12 Call for Posters and Highlights




                    2nd IEEE International Conference on
         Computational Advances in Bio and Medical Sciences (ICCABS)

                    Feb. 23-25, 2012, Las Vegas, Nevada

                          http://www.iccabs.org/

Advances in high-throughput technologies such as DNA sequencing and mass 
spectrometry are profoundly transforming life sciences, resulting in the 
collection of unprecedented amounts of biological and medical data. Using this 
data to advance our knowledge about fundamental biological processes and 
improve human health requires novel computational models and advanced analysis 
algorithms.  IEEE ICCABS aims to bring together leading academic and industry 
researchers to discuss the latest advances in computational methods for bio and 
medical sciences.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

At this time we accept poster and Highlights submissions.  Each poster 
submission should not exceed 1 page in length. In addition to being 
displayed, each accepted poster will also be allocated a short time for an 
oral presentation.  Each poster title should start with the word 
"Poster:".  Accepted abstracts will be published in the IEEE Xplore 
Digital Library.

The Highlights track is meant for authors to talk about results from 
previously published papers. Each accepted speaker will be given the same 
amount of time as that for a regular paper. Nothing will be published in 
the proceedings corresponding to the Highlights track. Authors are asked 
to submit a brief summary and the importance along with publication 
details of the paper they want to talk about. The title of the summary 
should start with the word "Highlights:".

Authors are invited to make their submissions electronically in PDF format 
by following the instructions at http://iccabs.org/. Submissions should be 
prepared using IEEE Computer Societys Word/LaTeX templates available at 
http://www2.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting.
