Abstract submission this year will be via EasyChair. You will need to register for an account on EasyChair in order to submit your abstract.

The official deadline for submitting abstracts for BOSC talks will be April 1, 2016; however, we aim to keep a few spots saved for Late-Breaking Lightning Talks and posters. (There will also be a few spots reserved for walk-in posters; however, those will not be listed in the program or on the BOSC website.)


Abstract Formatting Requirements

Abstracts must be one page (8.5 inches by 11 inches) in length and submitted as a PDF (preferred), Microsoft Word, or text file.

You may wish to use one of these abstract templates:

If you want to submit your abstract in plain text format, please be sure to use the file extension ".txt" or the abstract submission system will reject it.

Please use one of the provided templates or format your abstract as follows:

  • Use 1 inch (2.5 cm) margins on the top, sides, and bottom of the page.
  • Include the following pieces of information in order from the top of the page:
    • Title
    • Authors, with the presenting author's name underlined.
    • Author affiliations, including the e-mail address of the presenting author.
    • URL for the overall project web site
    • URL for accessing the code
    • The particular Open Source License being used
  • The abstracts will be collated "as is" in the program booklet; please help your all-volunteer Organizing Committee by following the formatting guidelines above.

To be considered for acceptance, software systems representing the central topic in a presentation submitted to BOSC must be licensed with a recognized Open Source License, and be freely available for download in source code form. Please see the next section for more information.

BOSC Open Source License Requirement

The Open Bioinformatics Foundation, which sponsors BOSC, is dedicated to promoting the practice and philosophy of Open Source Software Development within the biological research community. For this reason, if a submitted abstract concerns a specific software system for use by the research community, then that software must be licensed with a recognized Open Source License, and be available for download, including source code, by a tar/zip file accessed through ftp/http or through a widely used version control system like cvs/subversion/git/bazaar/Mercurial.

See the following websites for further information:

Code of Conduct

In March 2015, ISMB published a Code of Conduct that applies to SIGs (including BOSC) as well as the main ISMB/ECCB meeting.
