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. Without your manuscript submissions articulating the latest and greatest research in the field, they will have nothing to discuss except the inefficacies of using blog posts to call for papers. Don’t make the blogging community look worthless, submit a manuscript now!
Here are the details on how to help them:
