the deadline for the submission of abstracts for oral communications has
been extended until next July 15, 2016.
NB! If you plan to apply for CHARME support (travel and daily budget), you
must submit your abstract within the above deadline even if it is a poster
I’m looking forward to meeting you in Rome in October.
All the best. Paolo Romano
*Reproducibility, standards and SOP in Bioinformatics*
*A combined CHARME, EMBnet and NETTAB 2016 Workshop*
