Logistics, accommodation and transportation

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 5 challenges.

Conference registration will open soon. There is a 10% discount on registration for ISCB members. Space in the conference is limited, therefore early registration is strongly advised.

Registrants will receive a code for $50 off for ISMB registration.

Conference admission is open to all participants of the CAGI experiment, as well as sponsors. Participants are individuals who were predictors, assessors, data providers, CAGI advisory board or scientific council members, or CAGI organizers. Observers will also be accommodated, depending upon space availability and anticipated contributions to the meeting. (If an observer has registered and was not admitted, then the registration fee will be refunded in full.)

Fellowships are available to assist with the costs of some US citizen trainees or permanent residents (students and postdocs) through an NHGRI R13 award.
In the event that multiple trainees from one group apply for a conference fellowship, the PI of that group is requested to contact the organizers by email (cagi@genomeinterpretation.org) and provide a ranking of the applications.
