The Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) is sponsored by the
Open Bioinformatics Foundation (O|B|F), a non-profit group dedicated
to promoting the practice and philosophy of Open Source software
development within the biological research community. To be considered
for acceptance, software systems representing the central topic in a
presentation submitted to BOSC must be licensed with a recognized Open
Source License, and be freely available for download in source code

We invite you to submit one-page abstracts for talks and posters.  This year's session topics are:
- Cloud and Parallel Computing
- Linked Data
- Genome-scale Data Management
- Data Visualization and Imaging
- Translational Bioinformatics
- Software Interoperability (possibly a joint session with BSI-SIG,
  the Bioinformatics Software Interoperability SIG)
- Bioinformatics Open Source Project Updates
- Interfacing with Industry (panel)

Thanks to generous sponsorship from Eagle Genomics and an anonymous
donor, we are pleased to announce a competition for three Student
Travel Awards. Each winner will be awarded $250 to defray the costs of
travel to BOSC 2012.
