Call for Posters

2012 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM 2012)

October 4-7, 2012, Philadelphia, USA

Poster submissions are welcome in all areas of bioinformatics , biomedicine and healthcare
informatics relevant to the scope of BIBM (for a detailed list of topics see the
http://www.ischool.drexel.edu/ieeebibm/bibm12/IEEE-BIBM2012-CFP.htm ). Poster presentations offer the
opportunity to present late-breaking results, work in progress, or other significant research
that is best communicated in a graphical or interactive format. We expect the poster session to
be the focus of interactions between authors and other conference participants, leading to
discussions about the work presented, fostering possible collaborations, and providing the
authors with valuable feedback about their work.
