The IEEE Technical Committee on Computational Life Science (TC CLS), tccls.computer.org, offers best papers and travel awards. Eligibility for the award is restricted to papers where the first author is a full-time student. As well as making the submission via EasyChair in the normal way, such submissions must also be sent to the CBMS Chairs, marked as ’Student Paper for consideration for award’ and accompanied by a letter of support from the student’s supervisor. Mail documents to CBMS2018@easychair.org
Best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a Special Issue that will be announced later.
