You can now submit an abstract for a presentation at the BioSB 2020 conference. The main programme of the conference will feature several parallel sessions that will be set up via abstract selection.
You can submit an abstract for an oral presentation in one of the sessions or for a poster or demo presentation.
There will be no extensions of submission deadlines! Please submit your abstract according to the deadlines mentioned below!
- Submission for oral & highlight presentations: 15 February 2020, 23h59
- Notification date oral & highlight presentations: 28 February 2020
- Abstract submission for posters & demos: 16 March 2020
New this year: highlight presentations and poster flashes
New during the conference this year are highlight presentations and poster flashes. For highlight presentations we invite people to submit an abstract that relates to work that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal since January 1st 2019. Based on these, people will be given the opportunity to present their work in one of the parallel sessions in a 15 + 5 minute presentation & questions time slot.
In addition, we will give a number of poster presenters a unique opportunity to show-case their work in a very short one-minute flash talk during the plenary session preceding the poster session on the first or second day. The abstract selection committee will nominate candidates based on the accepted abstracts for poster presentations.

You can submit an abstract to present your work in one of the topical parallel sessions during the conference. The presentation slot will be 15 minutes + 5 minutes for questions.
We invite people to submit an abstract that relates to work that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal since January 1st 2019. Based on these, people will be given the opportunity to present their work in one of the parallel sessions in a 15 + 5 minute presentation & questions time slot.
You can submit an abstract for a poster to be presented during the poster sessions which are planned on April 21rd late afternoon/evening (even poster numbers) and on April 21st during the lunch break (odd poster numbers). Poster numbers will be determined after the submission deadline. We expect all posters to be present on both days, but on the assigned (even/odd) day we expect you to actually present your poster.
Posters should be prepared in A0 portrait format (height: 1189 mm (46.81 inches) and width: 841 mm (33.11 inches)).
A prize will be awarded to the best poster presentation.
Poster flash presentation: a unique opportunity to show-case your work in a very short one-minute flash talk during the plenary session preceding the poster session on the first or second day.
You can submit an abstract for a software/tools demonstration during the demo sessions at the conference which will be held simultaneously with the poster sessions.
The software demo will be a setup with a poster, a high table and electricity plug.
