INTRODUCTION

We invite you to participate at our 3nd Mass Spectrometry Special Interest Group (MS-SIG) on July 12, 2014, 8:30 a.m - 6:00 p.m. in John B. Hynes Memorial Convention Center, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
MS-SIG aims to bring together experts from the global research community to discuss current progress and challenges in the field of mass spectrometry based proteomics and computational biology. Our meeting will contain three portions: oral presentation, panel discussion, and poster presentation. We invite abstract submissions on a wide range of topics list below. The poster session will provide an opportunity to present your work in an informal setting. We will also have a limited number of talks selected from abstracts slots in the program.

Session I: Current developments in computation of mass spectrometry data
    a. Protein detection, e.g. standards and pipelines, de novo identification
    b. Protein characterization, e.g. site-specific protein modification
    c. Protein quantification, e.g. selected reaction monitoring (SRM), SWATH-MS, label-free vs labelling approach

Session II: Challenges in proteomic applications in biology and medicine
    a. Method developments for population proteomics, e.g. analysis of data from large number of samples of a study
    b. Analysis of interaction networks and protein complexes using mass spectrometry
    c. Integration of multiple mass spectrometry studies
    d. Integrative analysis of proteomics and other omics data for biology and medicine

Call for Abstract

We invite abstract submissions on a wide range of topics about mass spectrometry data analysis. The poster session will provide an opportunity to present your work in an informal setting. Please note that a limited number of talks will also be selected from the abstracts. You may also use the same poster for both ISMB main conference and MS-SIG.

Abstract Guidelines. Prepare as a Microsoft Word or .txt file.
Page Size: Formatted for 8.5 x 11 inch paper.
Font Size: 12-14
Length: Abstract may not exceed one page.
Presentation Title: Do not use all upper case or all lower case text
Authors: First, middle initial, last name, professional title, and affiliation
Presenting author: First, middle initial, last name, and email address
Keywords: up to five keywords
Review your abstract carefully before submission. To submit your abstract, please email as an attachment to ms.sig.2014 [at] gmail.com. In your email, please indicate whether you would like your abstract to be considered for an oral presentation.

Abstract submission deadline: 06/01/14
Notification date: 06/08/14
