Expert Panel (Special Session 4) – Saturday, March 30

On Day 3 from 1:15-2:50 p.m, we will host 4-6 expert panels (four slots are secured and two additional slots are open) to be proposed by a group of registered professionals. Each expert panel should consist of a chair (moderator) and a group of panelists who are domain subject experts for the topic. Example topics that we may consider for the expert panels are:

  • AI in Bioinformatics: Opportunities and Challenges
  • Translational Bioinformatics: How to Make an Impact in the Clinical Practice
  • Consumer Genomics
  • Privacy and Security Concerns for Clinical Genomic Research
  • High-performance Computing and Clouds in Bioinformatics

Those interested in proposing an expert panel must submit an one-page abstract to the conference by March 15 to include:

  1. Title
  2. Chair moderator name and affiliations
  3. Panelist names and affiliations
  4. A list of questions to cover and rationale why it’s of interest to the conference attendees and the field 
  5. A statement that all participants will attend the meeting in person and pay for the registration fees.
