Call for posters

CAMDA, a community-wide experiment of microarray data analysis, calls for your participation in 2013 to be a part of our Poster Fair. We are inviting original posters related to any datasets. All submissions must follow these rules:

  • All abstracts submitted for presentation at CAMDA must be previously unpublished original work.
  • You are, however, allowed to present your work at other conferences.
  • Authors are encouraged to reference the proceedings of earlier years (Methods for Microarray Analysis, volume I, II and III. Kluwer, Boston, MA.) for the previous contributions.
  • Poster presentation: The size of the poster board is 46 inches (wide) x 45 inches (height). Please keep in mind that there will not be room for your poster presentations to be larger than these dimensions. If your poster is larger then the specified width you will not be able to show all your work.

Poster Submission Format

An abstract is necessary for the selection process by the scientific committee. The abstract should include key results, figures, and tables. For posters the length of the abstract is limited to two pages (at 12pt Times Roman). If your abstract exceeds this limit, your submission cannot be considered.

Abstracts must include the title, authors, affiliation and contact email addresses. The name of the presenting author should be underlined.

All papers should be submitted electronically as PDF, Microsoft Word, or OpenOffice files online: easychair/CAMDA2013. Suitable posters will be accepted in order of submission as capacity permits.

CAMDA Poster Presentation Guidelines

Feedback of previous CAMDA attendees indicates the need for emphasis of biological relevance in addition to the data mining methodology. The submitted contributions are encouraged to include:

  • The proposed analytical objective (problems to be solved).
  • A brief summary of the analytical effort (how to solve the problem).
  • This may include the data preprocessing tasks such as data normalization, and data extraction, data mining steps and algorithms used, as well as the evaluation criteria.
  • Interpretation of results and presentation of discoveries in a biological context.
  • Discussion of the merits, assumptions, and limitations of your approach
  • Conclusions
