Call for proposals Workshops and tutorials – GCB2019 Heidelberg
Deadline for submission: February 15th 2019
The 2019 edition of the German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB2019) will take place in Heidelberg 16-19 September 2019 (https://gcb2019.de/). It will bring together a large bioinformatics community from Germany and abroad, with around 250-300 attendees expected. This year’s conference will focus in particular on topics of medical informatics and computational approaches in disease.
The first day (Monday, September 16th) will be dedicated to workshops and tutorials. Tutorials will be the opportunity to organize small scale events with hands-on approaches related to the topics of the main conference, featuring a new computational tool or method for example. Workshops should be centered around a current hot topic, providing the chance to exchange ideas through written/oral contributions.
We are able to offer the possibility to organize a small number of these events, that could span half a day (morning or afternoon, 3 hours) or a full day with lunch break (6 hours).
Proposals for workshops or tutorials should be submitted using the form below before February 15th. The proposal should include (1) a description of the topic, explaining its relevance for this years conference as well as (2) names and contacts of the organisers. In addition, the proposal should contain the following information:
For workshops: (a) expected number of speakers (with a first list of names), (b) list of persons in the organization committee, (c) draft schedule (CFP, selection deadlines,…)
For tutorials: (a) maximum number of participants, (b) technical requirements in terms of infrastructure.
Important: the organisers of these events will be responsible for the advertisement and the selection of participants. The GCB organization committee will assist by providing rooms and technical assistance if required, and will help in organizing the catering if needed.
