Many of the journal’s academic editors will be in attendance, and PLOS Computational Biology staff Gary Beardmore and Bethany Coates will be manning the booth, alongside Catherine Nancarrow, Senior Managing Editor, and Mei-Yan Leung, Product Marketing Manager. They’re keen to answer your questions, talk about your research, and hear your thoughts on Open Access and the journal’s role in the community.
We will also be running a live blog, with guest bloggers relating their experiences of ISMB/ECCB 2015 and interviewing some of the speakers. If you are interested in taking part, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by Booth 1.
We will have special PLOS Computational Biology 10th Anniversary t-shirts available from the booth, featuring a design by this year’s winner Kifayathullah Liakath-Ali. Numbers are limited however, so come early to snag one before they’re gone!
