Call for Papers and Posters
addressing the challenges of sharing, analysis, and privacy at scale
January 3-7, 2020
The Big Island of Hawaii, U.S.A.
Rapid advances in sequencing, omics technologies, biosensors, and mobile health tracking devices are opening up new vistas of personal biomedical and health data. To achieve the vaunted goals of precision medicine and go from measurement to clinical translation, substantial gains must be made in methods for data integration, analysis, model development, and interpretation. We welcome all submissions relevant to this exciting and growing area of research.
We invite contributions in a broad range of computational topics applicable to precision medicine research, both in and outside the clinic. The session is expected to cover original research and methodology related to precision medicine’s most pressing or anticipated problems or needs related to human health.
Examples of topics within the scope of this session include but are not limited to:
Steven Brenner, University of California, Berkeley; email@example.com
Martha Bulyk, Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School; firstname.lastname@example.org
Dana Crawford, Case Western Reserve University; email@example.com
Alexander Morgan, Khosla Ventures; firstname.lastname@example.org
Predrag Radivojac, Northeastern University; email@example.com
Nicholas Tatonetti, Columbia University; firstname.lastname@example.org
The submitted papers are fully reviewed and accepted on a competitive basis.
Paper submissions due: August 5, 2019 (no extensions will be granted)
Notification of paper acceptance: September 13, 2019
Camera-ready final paper deadline: October 1, 2019
Deadline for poster abstract submission: November 15, 2019
Paper Format and Submission Portal
Please see the PSB paper format template and instructions at http://psb.stanford.edu/psb-online/psb-submit.
Unlike the abstracts at most biology conferences, papers in the PSB proceedings are archival, rigorously peer-reviewed publications. PSB publications are Open Access and linked directly from MEDLINE/PubMed and Google Scholar for wide accessibility. They should be thought of as short journal articles that may be cited on CVs and grant reports.
Travel Fellowships for Trainees
PSB traditionally provides fellowships for select trainees. The application process opens upon paper acceptance. Individuals from underrepresented communities are particularly encouraged to participate in the conference and apply for travel support.
Poster presenters will be provided with an easel and a poster board 32"W x 40"H (80x100cm). One poster from each paid participant is permitted. See the submission portal web site for the instructions regarding poster submissions.
