2023 Workshop on emerging methods for sequence analysis

Call for participation

The Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at Penn State will host a one-day workshop on emerging methods for sequence analysis on May 24, 2023. The workshop will feature a mix of invited speakers and talks selected from submitted abstracts. We thank Mona Singh, Princeton University, and Pavel Pevzner, UC San Diego, for accepting our invitation as keynote speakers! Please register through this link. Registration is free.

We invite submissions of abstracts highlighting methodological innovation and summarizing experimental or theoretical results through EasyChair: Abstracts should be max. 250 words long and can be submitted until April 1st. We encourage submission of unpublished work. There is no formal review. After reading through all abstracts, the organizing committee will select abstracts for oral presentation. We invite authors of remaining abstracts to present their work in the form of a poster. If you have any questions, please email the organizers at

Submissions in the general scope of methods for biological sequence analysis will be considered. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • data structures and algorithms for indexing, searching, sketching, assembling, and comparing sequencing data
  • theoretical analysis on abstracted mathematical formulations
  • statistical inference and association studies with sequencing data
  • methods for analyzing omics data, e.g., single-cell, transcriptomic, or proteogenomic data

Note: if using adaptive technology and you require an accommodation, please instead submit your abstract by email to
