Call for Papers for the Biomedical Computation at Stanford (BCATS) Symposium

Submissions for BCATS 2010 are now being accepted at

Abstract submission deadline: October 18, 2010
Symposium date: November 6, 2010

Now in its eleventh year, the Biomedical Computation at Stanford (BCATS) Symposium, a one-day scientific conference organized entirely by students highlighting current research by students and post-docs in the San Francisco bay area including Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco, UC Santa Cruz and UC Davis. BCATS provides an open, interdisciplinary forum for students and post-docs around the San Francisco bay area to share their latest work in computational biology and medicine with their fellow colleagues from neighboring institutions. Last year, BCATS presented the work of over 60 research projects to over 250 attendees from the scientific community.

All all students and post-docs conducting research in biomedical computation are encouraged to submit an abstract for presentation at BCATS 2010. Attendance at BCATS is free for students who register by the early-registration deadline of October 31, 2010. Work presented at BCATS will be in the form of either a 10 minute scientific talk or a poster presentation.
