Submit an Abstract

The RECOMB Conference on Regulatory and Systems Genomics invites abstracts for consideration for oral presentations or participation in a poster session. Abstracts may be either original unpublished work or original work that was published or accepted for publication at a high-impact journal between January 1 and November 1, 2012. Unpublished work will be considered for either an oral or a poster presentation. Work already accepted for publication will be considered for an oral presentation only.

Submission deadline: September 7, 2012

Abstracts received before the due date will be considered for oral presentations and/or poster presentations. If your abstract is accepted, it will be included in an abstract booklet that will be distributed to all conference participants. The abstract booklet will also include abstracts of full-length papers accepted in our partner journals Genome Research and the Journal of Computational Biology.

Any abstracts submitted after the deadline will be included only at the discretion of the conference chairs, and will be eligible for poster presentations only. Abstracts sent after the due date will not be included in the abstract booklet due to printing constraints. Please also note that we can only allow one abstract per presenting author.

Any abstract that is not associated with a submitted paper will be treated as a personal communication. Authors reserve the right to publish their work elsewhere.

How to submit your abstract

Please use this link to EasyChair to submit your abstract. You will be asked to provide information about yourself and your coauthors, including name, e-mail address, and affiliation. Please check one box for corresponding author to indicate who would be speaking or would be primarily responsible for your poster. You will also be asked to provide an abstract title, the text of your abstract, and keywords.

Important: Please be sure to check the box “abstract only” near the bottom of the page to indicate that you are not submitting a paper.


This conference is designed to present the latest findings about regulatory and systems genomics, foster discussion about current research directions, and establish new collaborations that will advance the development of a systems-level understanding of gene regulation. Some possible topics include:

  • Modeling and recognition of regulatory motifs and modules
  • Chromatin state establishment, maintenance, and role in development
  • Post-transcriptional regulation and small regulatory RNAs
  • Regulatory networks, metabolic networks, proteomic networks
  • Cellular signatures of biological responses and disease states
  • Phosphorylation, metabolic fluxes, systematic phenotyping
  • Mathematical modeling and simulation of biological systems
  • Methods for systematic validation of high-throughput biological predictions
  • Approaches for aggregation of results arising from different methodologies
