We are soliciting submissions for a full-day Education session as part of the program of Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) 2018, to be held July 6-10, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Chicago, IL. Deadline for Proceedings Submission is January 29th. Deadline for Abstract Submissions is April 5th. This is the first time ISMB is specifically soliciting contributed work in the area of computational biology education. Accepted work will appear as part of a one-day track at the ISMB meeting, run under the auspices of the ISMB Education Community of Special Interest (COSI), in parallel with other COSI tracks. The Education track will be open to all ISMB attendees and run on a parallel schedule to other ISMB tracks. Contributions are solicited for proceedings papers with associated platform talks as well as short abstracts for consideration for talks or posters. These will appear in addition to invited talks on topics of community interest.
