Poster submissions are welcome in all areas of bioinformatics and biomedicine relevant to the 
scope of BIBM. Poster presentations offer the opportunity to present late-breaking results, work 
in progress, or other significant research that is best communicated in a graphical or interactive 
format. We expect the poster session to be the focus of interactions between authors and other 
conference participants, leading to discussions about the work presented, fostering possible 
collaborations, and providing the authors with valuable feedback about their work. Poster 
abstracts are limited to one page, must be camera-ready, and must follow the same formatting 
requirements as the main papers. Posters will be reviewed on the basis of their relevance to the 
scope of the conference and on the scientific quality of the work presented. Each poster paper 
will be published with maximum upto 3 page limit in the poster/workshop proceedings.
