Looking forward to having a strong AgBioData presence at the next ASPB meeting!
Once again, Shabari (TAIR) and myself (Marcela, CSHL) are in charge of
the organization of the Plant Bioinformatics Resources Workshop at the
Virtual 2021 ASPB Plant Biology meeting. We were allotted a total of 2
hours on the Sunday prior to the official kick off of the meeting. So,
we would like to get an idea of how many resources would be interested
in participating in the workshop.
Plant Bioinformatics Resources Workshop
Sunday July 18, 2021
4:45 PM – 6:45 PM EDT
If you are planning on attending the meeting and are interested in
giving a talk, please fill out the table below with your contact info and
tentative title (topic) of your talk to help us decide on how to best
accommodate all interested speakers or if we need to set forth selection
metrics in a minimum rubric (e.g., topics of interests from last
survey, impact on the plant community, interconnectivity with other
resources, target users, etc.).
Our deadline to finalize the list of speakers is May 19, so we will
close this table by May 10. Again, if there is a similar number of
resources as last year, we are likely to follow the same format of short
pre-recorded talks. However, if we have a larger number, we might need
to select a subset of representative topics/resources.
VIRTUAL BOOTH EXHIBIT
The AgBioData Steering Committee is pleased to announce that all members
of the consortium will have the opportunity to have a virtual presence
in the AgBioData Virtual Booth Exhibit. The booth will have premium
features including the ability to virtually interact live and text chat with visiting
users, get analytic data of views/clicks, scan visitors via a
scavenger hunt, and other perks. If you are interested in participating,
I may be asking you for a logo of your resource and a summary slide to
include in an automated slideshow that will be uploaded in our booth.
The best part is that even if you are not attending the meeting, there are free exhibit hall-only registrations, which would allow
us to split duties to "wo/man" the booth at prime times, and set up 1-on-1
meetings with our users.
Anyhow, if you are interested in having your resource participate in the booth, please sign up in the same doc: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RlLXxEF992PNByzRTclKqrTTdg1wF26tTrRrUy_GpKM/edit?usp=sharing
Also, do not forget the reduced group registration rates (regardless of membership status and affiliation), before June 19:
5-9 People, per person $219
10-24 people, per person $159
