The BioVis Interest Group (http://www.biovis.net) is organizing a meeting
at *ISMB in 2016*. This meeting brings together researchers from the
visualization, bioinformatics, and biology communities with the purpose of
educating, inspiring, and engaging visualization researchers in problems in
biological data visualization, as well as bioinformatics and biology
researchers in state-of-the-art visualization research.

*BioVis at ISMB 2016* is co-located with ISMB 2016
<http://www.iscb.org/ismb2016> and will be taking place on July 8 in Orlando,
Florida at the Disney World Resort Swan and Dolphin hotel
<http://www.iscb.org/ismb2016-accommodation>. The main ISMB 2016 conference
will run from July 8 through July 12.

There are three possible ways to participate in *BioVis at ISMB*:

   1. New Research: Participants are invited to submit an abstract
   describing high-quality original research. Abstracts will be reviewed by
   the program committee and all accepted abstracts will be included in the
   poster session. The authors of selected abstracts will be asked to give a
   brief oral presentation during the SIG meeting.
   2. Highlights: Participants may submit an abstract describing work
   published in the previous year as well as additional work undertaken since
   publication. The program committee will review these abstracts.
   Additionally, the BioVis SIG program committee may also invite authors of
   outstanding publications from other venues. The authors of selected
   abstracts will give an oral presentation during the SIG meeting.
   3. Posters: We seek work in progress and preliminary results; previously
