The preliminary program is now available:

Careers Panel

At the conclusion of the oral presentations, we will be hosting a Q&A session with a panel of five well-established researchers relating to career and professional-development, as well as to share some of the lessons learnt from their own experience in research. Feel free to come with your own pre-prepared questions!

Our Panelists:

  • Prof. Christopher Leckie
  • Dr. Tony Papenfuss
  • Dr. Armita Zarnegar
  • Dr. Michael J. Kuiper
  • Dr. Annalisa Swan

The COMBINE Student Symposium 2013 is an opportunity for students and early-career researchers in computational biology, bioinformatics, and the life sciences to share their research with others in these fields. Presentations will be judged and the best ones will receive prizes!

The symposium is not a formal peer-reviewed conference, but a less formal opportunity to hone your presentations and obtain feedback on your research prior to major upcoming conferences.

We welcome submissions describing research in computational biology,bioinformatics, and the life sciences.

Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to:

  • sequence analysis
  • evolution and phylogeny
  • comparative genomics
  • protein structure
  • molecular and supramolecular dynamics
  • molecular evolution
  • gene regulation and transcriptomics
  • RNA biology
  • proteomics
  • systems biology
  • statistical genetics
  • mathematical biology

…and much more.

Oral presentations are limited to 15 minutes in duration, with an additional 5 minutes for questions from the audience.

Summaries of already published work, work in progress, or soon to be submitted work are allowed and encouraged!

The DEADLINE for submission of abstracts is 1st November, 2013.

Authors will be notified of submission outcomes by 15th November, 2013.

  3. Hello. I am a biosciences undergrad student contemplating postgrad studies in bioinformatics. Is this event something I might benefit from, or is it aimed at more advanced (i.e. postgrad/professional) audience? Thanks.

    • You will definitely benefit from attending: you will learn about the projects of PhD students, will be able to interact with students at various stages of their post-grad studies, and you will also benefit from our career panel where experienced researchers from academia and industry will talk about their careers and current occupations.
