> *** Who Could/Should Submit
> We invite submissions from scholars, clinicians, activists, developers,
> lawyers, ethics experts, public servants, and all around researchers in
> computer science, life sciences, biology, bioinformatics, law, data
> protection, ethics, public policy, and any others who can give a compelling
> talk about genome privacy and security.
> GA4GH and GenoPri attract world-renowned experts in this field: if you are
> excited to give a talk to such a group, and you think they would be excited
> to hear it, then you should submit.
> Submission of proposals to  report previously published works are also
> welcome.
> *** What to Submit
> We invite two-page talk proposals (single-column, single-spaced, using
> 10pt Times font and 1.8” margins) that give an overview of what you intend
> to present, including any results or conclusions you intend to share. We
> strive for engaging talks and focused discussions, and so proposals should
> display exciting ideas that can be communicated clearly and with brevity.
> Authors are welcome to link to additional sources of their work (e.g.,
> software, videos, websites, papers) within their proposal. We will strive
> to incorporate these additional sources into the review process, although
> comprehensive review of material beyond what is contained in the submission
> text is not guaranteed.
> A proposal must include a title and a list of authors responsible for the
> work to be presented, one of whom commits to give the talk. It must be no
> more than two pages including references and submitted as a Word or PDF
> document.
> *** Proceedings
> GenoPri will have no official proceedings, but accepted submissions will
> be made available on the GenoPri and GA4GH websites (authors may revise
> them after acceptance). Authors may have the option to include talk-related
> resources, such as slides or software, on the website. With speaker
> consent, recordings of GenoPri talks may be made during the workshop and
> put online.
> *** How to submit:
> Submissions should be made through Easychair:
>   https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=genopri2018
> *** Keynote Speakers:
> Ewan Birney (European Bioinformatics Institute)
> Gene Tsudik (University of California, Irvine)
> *** Program Co-Chairs:
> Dixie Baker, Martin, Blanck & Associates
