Hello all

The call for abstracts for BOSC 2014 is out.  See below for details.

If you have questions I'm sure that Peter, Brad, Chris, and Hans-Rudolf, all frequent contributors to this list, would be answer them.  And glad to see that GigaScience, a GCC sponsor, is also sponsoring BOSC this year.

The Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) covers the wide range
of open source bioinformatics software being developed, and
encompasses the growing movement of Open Science, with its focus on
transparency, reproducibility, and data provenance.  We welcome
submissions relating to all aspects of bioinformatics and open science
software, including new computational methods, reusable software
components, visualization, interoperability, and other approaches that
help to advance research in the biomolecular sciences. Two full days
of talks, posters, panel discussions, and informal discussion groups
will enable BOSC attendees to interact with other developers and share
ideas and code, as well as learning about some of the latest
developments in the field of open source bioinformatics. BOSC is
sponsored by the Open Bioinformatics Foundation, a non-profit,
volunteer-run group dedicated to promoting the practice and philosophy
of Open Source software development and Open Scien!
 ce within the biological research community.

We invite you to submit one-page abstracts for talks and posters.
This year's session topics are:
   Open Science and Reproducible Research
   Software Interoperability
   Genome-scale Data and Beyond
   Translational Bioinformatics
   Bioinformatics Open Source Libraries and Projects

Once again we thank Eagle Genomics for sponsoring the BOSC Student
Travel Awards, and welcome the open access journal GigaScience as a
new sponsor for BOSC 2014.
