Details on Submitting a Manuscript

Submitted papers must have not been published or be currently under the consideration for publication in any other journal or conference with formal proceedings. All accepted papers will have to be presented by one of the authors at the conference. Accepted papers will be published in one of two journal supplements, either to BMC Genomics or to BMC Bioinformatics. (Upon submission, authors may choose between the two options. The Supplement Editors, however, will keep the right to modify the choice where necessary.)

Papers must be submitted in PDF format according to the guidelines in BMC’s Instructions for authors of the respective journal (BMC Genomics or BMC Bioinformatics):

Note that the strict formatting requirements only apply to the final versions after acceptance. For the review process it is actually preferred if only a single document is submitted, containing all text, tables and figures.

As BMC Genomics and BMC Bioinformatics are Open Access journals, there will be an author fee of £922 (Nine Hundred and Twenty Two Pounds Sterling) for publication in the event that an article is accepted.

All submissions must be made online, through the EasyChair submission system, at the following address:

You need to register on that web site before submitting. A standard PDF file must be received by midnight on June 19, 2015 (time zone of your choice) in order for your submission to be considered. Re-submission of already submitted papers will be possible until midnight June 22, 2015 (time zone of your choice).
