Register for ECCB 2022
Submit your abstract to the ELIXIR Communities Track
Track chair: Katharina Heil, ELIXIR
We invite submissions of abstracts to the ELIXIR Communities Track at ECCB2022. The aim of the ELIXIR Communities Track is to showcase the latest outputs and services emerging from ELIXIR’s Communities.
Submissions are open to ELIXIR Community members. They should highlight services and activities of the ELIXIR Community.
Presentations should be 15 minutes and will be followed by a maximum of five-minute discussions. Presenters are encouraged to demonstrate concrete services and outputs and show clearly the benefit of their resource or activity to the ECCB audience.
Accepted submissions will be presented in one of the four ELIXIR Communities Track sessions at the conference.
Authors of accepted submissions will be invited to publish their presentations on the ELIXIR F1000Research Gateway.

Call opens: 16 May 2022
Call closes: 29 May 2022
Authors will be notified of acceptance by 2 June 2022.

Review Criteria
All submissions will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

Relevance, interest, and value of the topic to conference attendees.
Relevance to the overall themes of ECCB2022: Data, Genome, Genes, Proteins, Systems.
Relevance to ELIXIR activities.

The ultimate decision of acceptance for an ELIXIR Communities Track lies with the Track Chair and ELIXIR Programme Committee. Accepted presenters are required to deliver the presentation themselves, and must register to attend the conference.
