The International Biocuration Conference is a unique event for curators and developers of biological databases to discuss their work, promote collaborations, and foster a sense of community in this very active and growing area of research. For the 6th International Biocuration Conference in Cambridge UK you are invited to submit your work for publication. This call for papers is done in collaboration with DATABASE: The Journal of Biological Databases and Curation. The DATABASE journal will publish an online Virtual Issue of the accepted papers. This is a great occasion to enhance the recognition of your work and of our profession by the greater biological research communities.
This year there are five topic sessions from which submitters are invited to select:
1. Community annotation
2. Functional annotation, tools and pipelines
3. Data mining and automated prediction
4. Ontologies and Standards
5. Data integration: Interactions, pathways and networks
An additional session, “Lightning talks/hot topics”, will include presentations outside the above topics.
The manuscript review process will be expedited for these papers and we will thus need to be firm on the submission deadline:
- Submission deadline: November 30, 2012
- First decisions: January 7, 2013
- Deadline for revisions: January 28, 2013
- Final decisions: February 18, 2013
- Conference: April 7-10, 2013
Authors wishing to submit to DATABASE for the 2013 Biocuration Virtual issue should go to the DATABASE home page (http://database.oxfordjournals.org/) and click on the "submit now" after having read the "Instructions to Authors". Authors should CLEARLY state that they are submitting this manuscript for consideration for the Biocuration 2013 conference so that the DATABASE staff will ensure appropriate fast-track for inclusion in this meeting's proceedings. In addition, in the database submission form, they should also select "Biocuration Conference Paper" as a manuscript type. We look forward to your participation at Biocuration 2013 the 6th International Biocuration Conference.
To be considered for a Biocuration 2013 presentation you MUST register and SUBMIT an abstract for the meeting <http://www.ebi.ac.uk/biocuration2013/>. On the abstract submission form, note that you will submit a manuscript for consideration by DATABASE for the Biocuration 2013 Virtual Issue.
