Default HitSeq 2010 Call for Papers & Abstracts

HiTSeq 2010: Conference on High Throughput Sequencing and Algorithms
July 9-10, 2010 in Boston USA
ISMB Special Interest Group

Call for Papers (with Bioinformatics journal) and Abstracts

Key Dates:

• March 1st – Paper submission deadline
• March 26th – Author Notification
• April 5th – Camera ready-version due
• May 1st – Abstract submission deadline
• May 15th – Abstract and Oral/Poster Presentation Decisions

The Conference on High Throughput Sequencing and Algorithms (HiTSeq 2010) will be held prior to the ISMB conference. HiTSeq follows the successful Short-SIG meetings at Stockholm (200 attendees) and Toronto (120 attendees), and will bring together biologists and computational scientists interested in exploring the challenges and opportunities in the analysis of high-throughput sequencing (HTS) data.

HiTSeq 2010 welcomes submissions on any topic related to high throughput sequencing technologies including the anticipated 3rd generation sequencing platforms. We are especially interested in presentations describing methodology to infer various polymorphisms (SNPs, larger insertions/deletions, copy number variants), methods for analysis of RNA sequencing data (RNA expression, de-novo transcriptome sequencing, novel transcript discovery), and other applications of HTS (transcription factor binding site discovery, nucleosome positioning, methylation profiling, analysis of metagenomic samples, and tumor/normal paired sample studies). We are also interested in algorithms that take full advantage of long reads and rich kinetic information inherent with real-time detection from 3rd generation sequencing data, with application to de novo assembly, structural variation, haplotyping, and fast viral screening. Given the different error models and throughput of short read and expected 3rd generation platforms, their coexistence and combination may be effective to address a number of biological problems. Algorithms that integrate multiple read types with their different properties will be of interest for the conference.

We are soliciting high-quality papers that will go through rigorous peer-review. Accepted papers will be presented at HiTSeq as either posters or talks, and will be published in a special proceedings section of the Bioinformatics journal. Bioinformatics and Oxford University Press are offering a $700 prize or open access charge waiver for the best paper presented at the meeting. Papers requiring extensive revisions will be considered separately as regular papers for the Bioinformatics journal and as abstracts for HiTSeq. All manuscripts should be submitted via the Bioinformatics online submission system at During submission please specify HiTSeq as one of the keywords, and include a cover letter stating that the manuscript be considered for the HiTSeq conference.

Simultaneously HiTSeq also allows for the submission of abstracts, which will be evaluated independently for the conference proceedings. The abstracts should target topics of immediate relevance in the field. To be considered for an oral presentation the material should not have been previously published in any journal or proceedings. Please check the conference website for submission instructions.

Oral/Poster presentations:
Presentations at HiTSeq may be either plenary talks or a poster at the conference poster session. The final decisions whether each paper or abstract is presented as a talk or a poster will be made by May 15th.
