The EasyChair link is the same as main conference, select “The 11th RECOMB Satellite on Computational Methods in Genetics” track.
The 11th RECOMB Satellite on Computational Methods in Genetics will focus on current research at the intersection of genetics, computer science, statistics, and related fields in gathering and analyzing genetic and genealogical data with applications toward problems in medicine and basic research. Population genetics allows more refined understanding of the demographic history of our species, association analysis provides insights regarding the functional and molecular underpinnings of diseases and traits, while clinical applications suggest genetics as a trailblazer into personalized medicine. The complex bioinformatic questions arising range from inferring more nuanced statistical models of genetic information to algorithms that overcome the computational challenges of analyzing millions of SNPs across millions of individuals, to systems level challenges of processing and storing Big Data repositories of genotypes and phenotypes.
The satellite meeting will take place in İstanbul, Turkey on April 15 2023 directly preceding the main RECOMB conference.
We solicit contributions in three categories (“tracks”):
All submissions to the proceedings track will be simultaneously considered for publication in a special issue of the journal iScience, if the authors agree. iScience is an open-access journal published by Cell Press for original research in the life, physical, and earth sciences.
In addition to the program committee of RECOMB-Genetics, editors of iScience will evaluate the papers for biological impact and suitability for publication. In particular, the following criteria will be used to evaluate the biological relevance:
Manuscripts for the "proceedings track" should not exceed 10 pages using at least 11 point font on U.S. standard 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper with no less than one inch margin all around. This excludes the cover page and references. The cover page should have the title and the corresponding author's email address. An optional short appendix, if absolutely necessary, can be included but will be considered at the discretion of the program committee. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically in PDF format via the EasyChair system.
Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by email on or before March 1, 2023. An author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop (if held in person) and present the paper; otherwise, alternative arrangements should be made to have the paper presented.
If you would like to consider submitting a paper rejected by RECOMB 2023 to the workshop, you may do so by the regular deadline of January 31, 2023. You must include in your submission a cover letter that includes the reviews received from RECOMB together with a rebuttal addressing the concerns raised by the reviewers. The submitted manuscript should also be modified according to the reviews, or provide an explanation of why modifications are unnecessary. All reviews will be treated confidentially and will only be visible to the PC members.
The submission system will be open starting Dec 19, 2022 and ending
Jan 31, 2023 Feb 14, 2023. The Program Committee will referee the conference submissions.
