Submit your work today to participate in North Africa, Portugal and Spain Student Symposium on Bioinformatics 2012 (NPS3Bio2012). Our second event will take place on the lovely city of Barcelona, in January 23rd, during the first day of the Jornadas de Bioinformática 2012 (JBI2012 – http://sgu.bioinfo.cipf.es/jbi2012/).
In this event we will bring together the brightest youngest scientist from North Africa, Portugal and Spain. This will give fellow students the opportunity to present their work to their peers and foster the cooperation and collaboration amongst these regions’ bioinformatics and computational biology community. Moreover, everyone will be able to evaluate state-of-the-art science and explore new career opportunities from the entire world.
The core of our symposium comprises 6 student presentations, selected from submitted abstracts. Your submission can cover any topic within the bioinformatics & computational biology fields and range from scientific reviews to novel algorithms or software. The submission is open until November 30th, and the submissions are processed in JBI2012’s system (check the “assist to student symposium” option). Our NPS3Bio Scientific Committee will evaluate the submissions and select the best based on scientific relevance, quality and adequacy to the conference. Moreover, all submissions will be invited to bring a poster to our poster session. The event will also feature two submission awards. The Best Abstract award, for the best submission, gives the winner free entrance to the main Jornadas de Bioinformática event. The Best Science award, for the most innovative and out-of-the-box work, gives the winner the opportunity to present the work in the Jornadas de Bioinformática Highlights Track.
This year we proudly have Attendance Fellowships for students who want to participate in this event without submitting any work. Please go to http://goo.gl/2BCTn to apply for this fellowship. All this information is available online at http://sgu.bioinfo.cipf.es/jbi2012/?page_id=165.
Go ahead and submit your work! Join us in Barcelona for this great opportunity to live science!
