2005 International Workshop on Bioinformatics Research and Applications
in conjunction with
International Conference on Computational Science 2005
Call for Papers
*See list of accepted papers at the end of the page*
Research and development in bioinformatics and computational biology require the cooperation of specialists from the fields of biology, computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics, and such related sciences. It is the comprehensive application of mathematics (e.g., probability and graph theory), statistics, science (e.g., biochemistry), and computer science (e.g., computer algorithms and machine learning) to the understanding of living systems. Bioinformatics is fast emerging as an important discipline for academic research and industrial application. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners in order to discuss various aspects of bioinformatics and computational biology and their applications.
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that demonstrate original unpublished research in all areas of bioinformatics research, including the development of experimental or commercial systems. Surveys of important recent results and directions are also welcome.
Topics of Interest Include but Are Not Limited To:
Email the paper as an attachment (in PS or PDF format) to the workshop's Program Chairs Prof. Yi Pan firstname.lastname@example.org or Prof. Alex Zelikovsky email@example.com. All papers will be reviewed and the accepted papers will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). For ICCS 2005, we are limiting the length of papers to 8 pages in the rather restrictive LNCS format (a 122 mm by 193 mm printed area, single column, 10 point font). The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of LNCS (for formatting information see Information for LNCS Authors). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. A selection of the best papers for the conference will be published in a special issue of an international journal LNCS Transactions on Computational Systems Biology (http://www.springeronline.com/sgw/cda/frontpage/0,11855,4-164-2-109319-0,00.html).
*Important Notes for Authors of Accepted papers:
REGISTRATION: At least one author of each paper *must* register for the ICCS2005 conference in order for your paper to be published in the proceedings. Please note that author registration deadline is on Friday March 11. We cannot guarantee inclusion of your paper if your registration is not received by the deadline. Registration is now open at: https://dcl.mathcs.emory.edu/iccs2005/registration.html.
PAPER INSTRUCTIONS: The camera ready version of your paper, formatted according to Springer-Verlag requirements, is due by on Monday, February 28. Limits of 8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for poster papers will be *strictly* enforced; unfortunately we are unable to accommodate length extensions. Please follow the formatting guidelines at: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html Submit papers via: http://www.iccs-meeting.org/papers/upload.php using the url already used for the review version. For each paper, please, provide the e-mail address for the responsible author so that we and Springer may contact him as needed.
