Quest for Orthologs meeting (QfO8)
July 17-18, 2024 - Montréal, QC, Canada

CALL: Abstract submissions for Talks and/or Posters.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: April 26, 2024 May 14, 2024

Talk and/or Poster Acceptance Notifications: May 17, 2024

Confirmed Invited Speakers: Fiona Brinkman (Simon Fraser University), Elena Kuzmin (Concordia University), Markus Hecker (University of Saskatchewan), Christine Orengo (University College London).

Scope: The QfO Consortium addresses a key challenge in molecular evolutionary biology and strives to develop large-scale methods for inferring orthology among fully sequenced genomes, and to reconstruct the complement of protein-coding genes in common ancestral genomes across the tree of life. The QFO meetings aim to bring together disparate groups around the world that work in the field to accelerate progress through sharing of ideas, methods and research findings. The particular aim of this QfO8 meeting is to gather an even more diverse set of end-users and to connect different research communities that are rooted in orthology.

Travel and Caregiver Fellowships: Authors of accepted talks/posters will be eligible for travel and caregiver fellowships to attend the conference. The procedure for application will be communicated to the relevant people in the talk/poster acceptance email.

ISCB (International Society for Computational Biology) members can receive a 15% discount on registration rates.
