We interrupt our regularly schedule post for this important announcement. There are only 7 days left to answer the call for papers and save a scientist.

Don’t leave Andrew and Ben to fend for themselves amidst to all that water, sun, and sand.

The 2015 Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing will be held from Jan 4-8 on Kohala Coast in Hawaii! Andrew and Ben (together with collaborators Robert and Zhiyong at NCBI) are organizing the session on Crowdsourcing and Mining Crowd Data. For the session to be remotely decent, they need manuscript submissions. Submissions will be vigorously peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published in an archival proceedings volume (fully indexed in PubMed), with a number of the papers selected for presentation during the conference. Please consider submitting your manuscripts describing biocomputing applications and methodological advances in crowdsourcing techniques or learning from crowd data. Andrew and Ben are going to PSB for the research, but will be forced to hit the beach if their session is cut short due to insufficient entries. Don’t expose them to be excessive radiant heat of the sun when they would rather bask in the cool, comforting glow of countless compelling powerpoint presentations.

Here are the details on how to help them:
Visit the PSB session call for papers page for useful details to determine if your manuscript is right for this session. Instructions on how to format and submit your manuscript are also included on that page.
