Call for abstracts

Participants are encouraged to submit an extended abstract to the workshop. Authors of selected abstracts will present their work in a five minute bullet talk and their posters will be presented in a poster session. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the organising committee. The best abstracts will be published in an abstract supplement of BMC Bioinformatics.
