The Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) covers the wide range of open source bioinformatics software being developed, and encompasses the growing movement of Open Science, with its focus on transparency, reproducibility, and data provenance.  We welcome submissions relating to all aspects of bioinformatics and open science software, including new computational methods, reusable software components, visualization, interoperability, and other approaches that help to advance research in the biomolecular sciences. Two full days of talks, posters, panel discussions, and informal discussion groups will enable BOSC attendees to interact with other developers and share ideas and code, as well as learning about some of the latest developments in the field of open source bioinformatics. BOSC is sponsored by the Open Bioinformatics Foundation, a non-profit, volunteer-run group dedicated to promoting the practice and philosophy of Open Source software development and Open Science within the biological research community.

We invite you to submit one-page abstracts for talks and posters.  This year's session topics are:
- Open Science and Reproducible Research
- Software Interoperability
- Genome-scale Data and Beyond
- Visualization
- Translational Bioinformatics
- Bioinformatics Open Source Libraries and Projects

Once again we thank Eagle Genomics for sponsoring the BOSC Student Travel Awards, and welcome the open access journal GigaScience as a new sponsor for BOSC 2014.

BOSC 2014 Organizing Committee:
Nomi Harris and Peter Cock (co-chairs), Raoul Jean Pierre Bonnal, Brad Chapman, Robert Davey, Christopher Fields, Hans-Rudolf Hotz, Hilmar Lapp
