25 – 27 January, 2016
Student Poster Competition in Big Data Applications in Life Sciences
The winners will have an all-expenses paid trip to attend the CBRC conference at
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
The Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC) will cover travel and
accommodation for the six students to attend and exhibit their posters at the
KAUST Research Conference on Computational and Experimental Interfaces of Big
Data and Biotechnology, 25-27 January 2016 in Thuwal, Saudi Arabia. The closing
date for the competition is 15 December 2015.
The Poster Competition is open for any graduate student to present work from
projects that they have carried out at their university or during internships.
All submitted posters will become public information, so it is the student’s
responsibility to make sure that there are no confidentiality issues or other
conflicts arising from the submission.
In order to enter the competition, applicants must be currently in a masters,
doctoral or first-year postdoctoral level status. The posters should be
formatted for printing in the A0 poster size, 36 x 46 Inches. Submissions will
be evaluated based on novelty and applicability of Big Data approaches in all
life sciences with special emphasis on biotechnology and bioinformatics.
The applicants must ensure that they are in possession of a passport valid
for at least six months after the intended date of departure from Saudi Arabia
in order to be able to apply for a Saudi visa in a timely manner. We will guide
and assist the chosen students in their visa application. Proposals should be
submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with
Big Data 2016 Competition in the subject line to whom further
inquiries should be made.
