We'd be delighted to have an EMBOSS project update talk submitted to

on the EMBOSS mailing lists.

*About BOSC*
Since 2000, the yearly Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) has
provided a forum for developers and users to interact and share research
results and ideas in open source bioinformatics. BOSC’s broad spectrum of
topics includes practical techniques for solving bioinformatics problems;
software development practices; standards and ontologies; approaches that
promote open science and sharing of data, results and software; and ways to
grow open source communities while promoting diversity within them.

In the past, BOSC has taken place the two days before ISMB as a Special
Interest Group (SIG). This year, ISMB is trying a new structure: the SIGs
(now called COSIs) are integrated into the main ISMB meeting. BOSC will
take place the first two full days of ISMB (July 22-23). Attendees will
have the option to register for the full ISMB/ECCB meeting (July 21-25) or
for just two days (there is no single-day registration option this year). A
limited number of partial travel fellowships will be granted to some
accepted speakers who would not otherwise be able to attend BOSC--please
see https://github.com/OBF/obf-docs/blob/master/Travel_fellowships.md for
more information.

We encourage you to submit one-page abstracts on any topic of relevance to
open source bioinformatics and open science. After review, some abstracts
will be selected for lightning talks, longer talks, and/or posters.
Abstract submission instructions and a link to the EasyChair portal can be
found on https://www.open-bio.org/wiki/BOSC_Abstract_Submission

*Session topics include:*

   - Open Science and Reproducible Research
   - Open Biomedical Data
   - Citizen/Participatory Science
   - Standards and Interoperability
   - Data Science
   - Workflows
   - Visualization
   - Medical and Translational Bioinformatics
   - Developer Tools and Libraries
   - Bioinformatics Open Source Project Progress Reports

We gratefully accept sponsorships from relevant private companies. These
sponsorships enable us to offer free registration to some BOSC speakers to
help increase diversity at our meeting. Sponsors in 2016 included
Curoverse, the company behind the open source platform Arvados. Please
contact us if you are interested in being a sponsor of BOSC 2017!

Thank you,
      BOSC 2017 Organizing Committee:   Nomi Harris (chair), Brad Chapman,
Peter Cock, Christopher Fields, Bastian Greshake, Karsten Hokamp, Hilmar
Lapp, Mónica Muñoz-Torres, Heather Wiencko

P.S. Don't forget to submit your BOSC abstract by April 13 at
