Central German Meeting on Bioinformatics 2015

Institute of Computer Science, Halle (Saale), August 26-27, 2015

Bioinformatics groups in the region of central Germany, and especially in the three cities of Halle, Jena, and Leipzig, cover a broad spectrum of topics in bioinformatics research. This meeting shall bring together scientists from central Germany, foster exchange between our groups, and provide an opportunity to stimulate ongoing and to plan future collaborations. The Central German Meeting on Bioinformatics 2015 has its origins in workshops of the Jena Centre for Bioinformatics and is the first meeting in a series of annual meetings organized at Halle, Jena, and Leipzig. The meeting language is English.

We would like to invite abstracts for talks and posters on advances and challenges of current bioinformatics research. The meeting is open to contributions from all areas of bioinformatics. Abstracts should be at most one page long including references, should use the provided template, and should be submitted via easychair.

Participation in CGMB 2015 is free of charge.

However, we would kindly ask you to register for the meeting to give us an estimate of the number of participants we can expect.

Online registration is closed, but it will still be possible to register on-site.


When preparing your abstract, please use the following templates:

Using one of these templates, the length of your abstract (including references) must not exceed one page. Submission is PDF-only via EasyChair. If you use the Word template, please convert the final abstract to PDF format before submitting it.

When submitting an abstract, please indicate your favored type of presentation (talk or poster). Authors of accepted talk abstracts will be invited by the program committee to make either an oral presentation or a poster presentation. By submitting an abstract, authors agree on publication of abstracts on the meeting website.

Submission is closed.
