This is a reminder that the deadline for submitting abstracts for full  
talks to the inaugural conference on Informatics for Phylogenetics,  
Evolution, and Biodiversity (iEvoBio) is Thursday, April 8, 2010,  
which less than 1 week away. Please see http://bit.ly/iEvoBio_CfA for  
the full Call for Abstracts and author instructions.

As another reminder, full talks are only 1 of 5 kinds of contributed

(5 mins long), 2) Challenge entries, 3) Software bazaar  
demonstrations, and 4) Birds-of-a-Feather gatherings. The Call for  
Challenge entries is also open (see http://ievobio.org/
