Call for symposia

Call for symposia is now closed

Symposia are 120-minute blocks that allow for extended, interactive discussion on a specific topic, focusing on a cluster of independent yet related papers. Each symposium consists of four slots, and should consist either of four presentations, or of three presentations and a discussion.

Proposals must include a general abstract describing the symposium as a whole (max. 1 page), as well as the abstracts for all individual presentations (each no longer than 1 page, plus up to 1 extra page for figures and references). Sufficient detail should be provided to allow peer reviewers to judge the merit of the proposal. The person submitting the symposium proposal is responsible for securing the permission and co-operation of all participants before the proposal is submitted.

All proposals should be anonymous. Please delete from your submission any details that might identify you (including those in the filename).

For details on formatting requirements, and to download the proposal template, see here.

Proposals should be uploaded to the ISB14 submission portal by 1 September 2022.

Enquiries regarding the academic content of the proposals should be addressed to the ISB14 Scientific Committee via For general inquiries about the conference please email the Organisational Committee at
