Hi Joao,

Last year all the main talks were 15 minutes plus 3 for questions
(i.e. 18 minute slots - shorter than ideal but good for scheduling
into the time blocks), except the project updates which got 10 mins
plus two for questions (12 minute slots), and lightning talks (5 mins
only, no questions). Exactly what we end up with for BOSC 2015
will depend in part on the number of good abstracts, but something

Having you present the Biopython Project Update would be good.

My plan is to attend the Galaxy conference in Norwich (GCC2015)
back-to-back with BOSC in Dublin (no funds to stay for ISMB/ECCB
as well, and frankly three meetings in a row would be exhausting).

Unfortunately GCC2015 will clash with the BOSC CodeFest, but
otherwise I would want to attend the CodeFest, which can be both
productive and good fun.

I yet don't know of any other Biopython people going to Dublin.

Bow: Do you remember if we put the abstract LaTeX files into
GitHub somewhere last year?

still weighing my options. If I would go, I wouldn't mind presenting,
maybe indeed including a bit of how we use Biopython here in the
lab. How long is a short talk? I would consider going for the
Codefest and BOSC. Who else is planning to go?
