BioVis 2016 Posters track at IEEE VIS in Baltimore, MD

October 23rd, 2016



BioVis 2016 is the 6th Meeting on Biological Data Visualization, an
interdisciplinary event covering all aspects of visualization in biology.
The 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. It is hosted as a one-day
single-track event at VIS (http://ieeevis.org) and a SIG half-day meeting
at ISMB (https://www.iscb.org/ismb2016).

The *BioVis at Vis 2016 Posters track *offers a venue to present and discuss
new research in biological data visualization. Submissions take the form of
a short (250-word) abstract with a supporting figure and are presented at
the conference site as large format posters during a dedicated poster
session. The BioVis workshop as a whole aims to promote interaction between
the visualization, bioinformatics, and biology communities, and the BioVis
poster session offers an interactive forum that encourages graphical
presentation, demonstration, and active engagement with BioVis participants
as well as all attendees of IEEE VIS.
