Roundtable Discussions (Special Session 5) – Saturday, March 30
On Day 3 from 1:15-2:50 p.m., we will host roundtable discussion topics proposed by registered participants (up to 15 topics total) for all interested registered attendees who wish to participate. Each topic will be hosted by a moderator at each table. Example topics to consider proposing are:
- Bioinformatics education in the medical school
- How to train next-generation bioinformatics data scientists
- Bioinformatics infrastructure and data commons
- Immunogenomics emerging topics
Those who are interested in becoming a moderator to propose a new roundtable topic should submit an abstract of no more than 100 words through the EasyChair abstract submission system with a title, by March 15, 2019. The topic will be selected on a first-come first serve basis up to 15 full capacity prior to the start of the conference. At the meeting, sign-up sheets will be posted on the bulletin board at the conference to participants to select. Each of the two roundtable sessions (Sessions 17 and 18) will last for 45 minutes. After the first session is over, discussion participants will have the opportunity to switch to another table for the second session.
