Call For Participation

BIOCOMP'11
The 2011 International Conference on Bioinformatics
and Computational Biology

July 18-21, 2011, Las Vegas, USA

http://www.world-academy-of-science.org/

This is an invitation to attend BIOCOMP'11 Conference. BIOCOMP'11 is
an
important part of WORLDCOMP'11 (a federated science gathering).
WORLDCOMP'11 is composed of 22 main tracks (12 tutorials, 167 sessions
and workshops, 37 keynotes/invited lectures/panel discussions, ...);
all
will be held simultaneously, same location and dates: July 18-21,
2011.
Attendees will have full access to all conferences' sessions, tracks,
and tutorials. Registration is required to attend. We anticipate about
2,000 attendees for WORLDCOMP (62% from academia; 26% from industry;
9%
from government agencies; and 3% unknown - about half of the attendees
are from outside USA). See below for:

D. Financial Assistantship for full-Time Students:

The congress has finalized the financial assistantship decisions
for students
who are affiliated with non-USA institutions (decisions were
communicated
with the awardees in March and May 2011). Unfortunately, 34 of the
awardees
are not able to secure USA visa in a timely manner to attend the
meeting. The
congress is now providing these 34 slots to full-time graduate
students who
are enrolled in USA institutions. This financial assistantship is
for
attendance only (ie, excludes speakers and authors of papers).
Sponsored
students will receive the complete conference package (printed
books/proceedings,
CD, dinner reception, 4 breakfasts, 12 refreshments, access to all
tracks and
tutorials, ...), registration fee waiver, partial help with hotel
accommodation,
and/or possibly some help with airfare. In order to apply, send the
following
information for consideration to wc...@world-comp.org as soon as
possible
(include as attachments in pdf only): a 2-page CV; a letter from
your major
professor or Department Head/Chair stating that you are a full-time
graduate
student in good standing; and a break-down of your itemized costs
(airfare,
hotel, ...). In the Subject Header of your email write "student
sponsorship".
Award decisions will be finalized by July 2, 2011 (so there is not
much time).
