CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: IEEE Symposium on Biological Data Visualization (BioVis 2011)

at VisWeek 2011
October 23-24, 2011
Providence, Rhode Island, USA

Registration is now open and early registration (reduced rate) ends on Friday, 16 September. Single day and two day registrations are available in addition to full week registration. Discounts are available for IEEE/ISCB/ACM members.

The goal of the first IEEE Symposium on Biological Data Visualization (BioVis 2011) is to create the premier international and interdisciplinary event for all aspects of visualization in biology. This symposium will bring together researchers from the visualization, bioinformatics, and biology communities with the purpose of educating, inspiring, and engaging visualization researchers in biological data visualization, as well as bioinformatics and biology researchers in state-of-the-art visualization research. As the first annual BioVis Symposium, this event seeks to emphasize inclusion and interaction between these communities as its primary impact.

We have compiled an exciting program that includes 
* a keynote by Lynda Chin (MD Anderson Cancer Center / Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard)
* a Primer by Lawrence Hunter (UC Denver) and Kun Huang (Ohio State)
* invited speakers 
  Arthur Olson (The Scripps Research Institute)
  Cydney Nielsen (BC Cancer Agency Genome Sciences Centre)
  Willy Supatto (California Institute of Technology)
* paper sessions with 24 presentations from all areas of biology
* 27 posters and demos
* a special session on BioVis challenges and results from the BioVis Contest
