RECOMB-CCB


Dates: 19-20 April, 2018

RECOMB-Computational Cancer Biology (CCB) focuses on applying statistical, mathematical, and algorithmic approaches to improve our understanding of cancer and on the development of useful, effective and efficient new methods in this area.

This year, RECOMB-CCB is going to precede the main RECOMB conference.

Selected papers are going to be published in Bioinformatics.

Submission guidelines

Papers — Deadline: January 26, 2018.

Selected papers will be published in the Bioinformatics journal. Please use the Bioinformatics format and guidelines for the manuscript preparation. Only full papers, not Application Notes, will be reviewed for Bioinformatics.

Papers that will get a Minor Revision will be accepted for publication in Bioinformatics as a part of the RECOMB-CCB track, and the authors will get a talk. Papers getting a Major Revision will be automatically transmitted into the “Abstract” category and compete for an oral presentation. If you have submitted a full paper you do not have to submit a separate abstract (Abstract Deadline Feb 14).

Please submit your paper via the EasyChair website. Select the Computational Cancer Biology Satellite Papers track. For the revision purpose, we ask you to prepare your submission as a single PDF file, which includes all Figures, Tables and Supplementary materials.

Abstracts — Deadline: February 14, 2018.

Please submit your 1-2 page abstract via the EasyChair website. Select the Computational Cancer Biology Satellite Abstracts track.
The abstract can include 1-2 Figures. Please use the following format: Paper Title: Times New Roman 16 pt bold; Author information: Times New Roman 14 pt italics; Body text: Times New Roman 11 pt.

You can submit an original work or a highlight. If you are submitting to the Highlights Track, please add the word “Highlight” to the title. For the Highlights Track, your work has been published in a journal after January 1, 2017, or papers that are in press at the time of submission and are already linked on the journal website.

Posters — Deadline: March 9, 2018.
Please submit your 1 page abstract via the EasyChair website. Select the Computational Cancer Biology Satellite Posters track.
The abstract cannot include figures. Please use the following format: Paper Title: Times New Roman 16 pt bold; Author information: Times New Roman 14 pt italics; Body text: Times New Roman 11 pt.
