Meet the “PLOSSE” at ISMB 2014

Heading to the ISCB’s annual conference, ISMB 2014, July 11– 15, in Boston this year?  Swing by Booth 409 and say hello to PLOS!

PLOS Computational Biology staff Clare Weaver and Chris Hall will be manning the booth, alongside PLOS ONE Associate Editor Renee Hoch and Mei Yan Leung, Product Marketing Manager. They’re keen to answer your questions and hear your thoughts on Open Access, the journals and exciting projects such as PLOS Computational Biology’sOutside the Box”.

We’ll also be hosting “Meet PLOS” drop-in sessions on the evenings of Sunday 13th and Monday 14th July. In the same vein as previous years’ “Meet the Editor” sessions, these drop-ins are your opportunity to chat to editors across PLOS ONE and PLOS Computational Biology. Visit Booth 409 for more information on these events and to snag a free PLOS Computational Biology t-shirt before they’re all gone. This year’s shirt was designed by Ariel Afek who will be at ISMB presenting the work featured in his design.

Keep an eye out for PLOS Computational Biology editors across the conference and follow us on Twitter for live updates on events that they’re involved in. Here are some to get you started:
