Registration for the CAGI 2013 conference is now open! Call for abstracts and fellowship applications

Dear CAGI Participant,

Registration for the CAGI 2013 conference is now open! The conference
will be held 17-18 July 2013 at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular
Biology in Berlin, Germany. To register, please visit:
- https://genomeinterpretation.org/content/register

The early registration deadline is 31 May 2013, with a fee of $490 for
ISCB members; see the website for all other registration options:
- https://genomeinterpretation.org/content/cagi-2013-conference
The meeting is open to all participants (predictors, assessors, data
providers, board & council) as well as sponsors. Observers may also
be accommodated, depending upon space availability and anticipated
contributions to the meeting.

We welcome participants to submit abstracts for oral and poster
presentations. We especially encourage abstracts that present methods
which were used for predictions on the CAGI 2012/2013 challenges. To
submit an abstract, please visit:
- https://genomeinterpretation.org/content/cagi-2013-conference-abstract

Fellowships will be available to a limited number of US trainees from
an NHGRI R13 grant; we may also be able offer fellowships or discounts
to others depending upon funds. We particularly encourage trainees
from underrepresented groups to apply for fellowships to attend the
meeting. Please apply at:

As with the previous conferences, the aim of this CAGI Conference is
to disseminate the results of the most recent CAGI experiment and
assess our collective ability to make accurate and meaningful
predictions of phenotypes from genomic information. CAGI assessors and
selected predictors will give the majority of the talks at the
conference, with significant time allocated for discussions.

Some important dates to keep in mind:
31 May 2013: Early registration closes
31 May 2013: Deadline for fellowship applications (including abstracts)
15 June 2013: Deadline for abstract submission (participants not
requesting fellowships)
21 June 2013: Regular registration closes

Much more information is available on the CAGI website:

If you are interested in sponsoring the CAGI conference--or have ideas
of potential sponsors--please contact us at
cagi@genomeinterpretation.org. Sponsorship will help support
additional predictor fellowships, assessors, and meeting amenities.

We look forward to seeing you in Berlin in July!

Sincerely,

Steven Brenner, CAGI Chair
