CALL FOR TUTORIALS
The Seventh International Conference on
Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB '99)
August 6 - August 10, 1999
ATTEND ONE OF THE PREMIER INTERNATIONAL MEETINGS IN BIOINFORMATICS
AND ENJOY THE RARE SIGHT OF A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE
Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the community, the educational tutorial program at ISMB has developed into an important component of the conference. As in previous years, the first day of the conference (Aug 6, 1999) will be devoted to tutorials. ISMB'99 tutorials will involve either half-day (3-4 hours) or full-day (6-7) hours of instruction, and will require the advance preparation of high quality, peer reviewed materials for the students.
We are soliciting proposals for introductory or advanced tutorials appropriate to this diverse conference community. Below is a sample of some previous tutorial topics:
These are indicative of the type and scope of the proposals that we are soliciting this year. We are also interested in proposals involving recent advances in the field that have not previously been covered by ISMB tutorials.
All tutorial instructors will receive an honorarium and have conference fees waived. In cases where there are multiple instructors, the honorarium will be shared among them.
The organizers reserve the right to cancel tutorials which do not have a reasonable attendance. In such cases, advance warning will be given a partial honorarium may be paid to the instructor(s) depending on the amount of advanced work carried out for the tutorial.

Note that in the past we have received more applications for tutorials than slots, so please make a clear case for the appropriateness of your proposed tutorial.
