CAMDA 2003 Conference Call for Posters

CAMDA, a community-wide experiment of microarray data analysis, calls for your participation in 2003 to be a part of our Poster Fair. We are inviting original posters related to any datasets. All submissions must follow these rules:

  • All abstracts submitted for presentation at CAMDA must be previously unpublished original work.
  • You are, however, allowed to present your work at other conferences. 
  • Authors are encouraged to reference the proceedings of the past three years (Methods for Microarray Analysis, volume I, II and III. Kluwer, Boston, MA. 2001, 2002 & 2003) for the previous contributions.

Important Dates:

One Page Abstract Due September 15, 2003
Notification to Poster Presenters October 13, 2003
Conference/Poster Fair November 13-14, 2003

Paper Submission Format:

Extended abstracts should follow the ACM proceedings format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html) on 8 1/2" x 11" paper. A cover page (template in Word format) should be accompanied with the abstract submission.

The deadline for submission is Sept 15, 2003. All submissions should be emailed to camda@mc.duke.edu.

Presentation Format:

Accepted papers will be invited for the poster presentation in the CAMDA 2003 conference. The authors will be notified by October 13, 2003.

  • Poster presentation: The size of the poster board is 4 x 4

Poster Fair Presenters:

Those chosen to participate in the Poster Fair need to register for the conference.  Only one author will be allowed to attend the conference without a fee.

CAMDA Poster Presentation Guideline:

Feedback of previous CAMDA attendees indicates the need for emphasis of biological relevance in addition to the data mining methodology. The submitted contributions are encouraged to include:

  • The proposed analytical objective (problems to be solved).
  • A brief summary of the analytical effort (how to solve the problem).
  • This may include the data preprocessing tasks such as data normalization, and data extraction, data mining steps and algorithms used, as well as the evaluation criteria.
  •  Interpretation of results and presentation of discoveries in a biological context.
  • This will help to present an easier framework for comparisons of different approaches.
  •  Discussion of the merits, assumptions, and limitations of your approach
  •  Conclusions

Questions concerning the CAMDA 03 Call for Posters should be directed to:
camda@mc.duke.edu.
