The Eleventh International Conference on Mathematical and Computer
Modelling and Scientific Computing is scheduled to take place March 31 -
April 3, 1997 at the Georgetown University Conference Center, Washington,
DC, U.S.A. The objective of the Computational Biology Session "Computing
in the Genome Era" (March 31 - April 2 [one more day!], 1997) is to
discuss the current state of computational biology, its approaches,
methods, general problems, achievements, and future developments with
emphasis on sequence research and analysis for the Genome Projects.
SPEAKERS of the session include:
S. Altschul (Natl Center for Biotechnology Information, Bethesda),
A. Bairoch (Geneva University, Switzerland),
T. Clark (Millenium Pharmaceuticals, Cambridge),
W. Gish (Washington University, St. Louis),
T. Gojobori (Natl Institute of Genetics, Mishima, Japan),
P. Green (University of Washington, Seattle),
S. Henikoff (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle),
L. Hood (University of Washington, Seattle),
A. Kerlavage (Institute for Genomic Research, Rockville),
E. Koonin (Natl Center for Biotechnology Information, Bethesda),
O. Ritter (German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany),
D. Searls (SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals, King of Prussia),
E. Shpaer (Perkin-Elmer Applied Biosystems, Foster City),
E. Trifonov (Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel),
C. Venter (Institute for Genomic Research, Rockville).
S. Altschul, A. Bairoch, W. Gish, P. Green, S. Henikoff, E. Koonin, E. Trifonov.
Papers (Abstracts) are invited on all relevant aspects of
computational biology for presentation at the session (a new deadline is
DECEMBER 23, 1996), to be selected on competitive basis by the steering
committee (notification of acceptance/rejection is JANUARY 4, 1997).
One-page abstracts should clearly describe the work and its conclusions.
Full length manuscripts (limited to six pages) of papers presented at the
conference will be published in the Conference Proceedings, in a special
issue of the journal MATHEMATICAL MODELLING AND SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING, Vol.
8, 1997 (ISSN 1067-0688). The manuscripts for the special issue are due
JUNE 15, 1997. The special issue of the journal will be published by
SEPTEMBER 1997. ALL participants shall pay the registration fee.
Abstracts (ONE PAGE, about 200 words, PLAIN JUSTIFIED TEXT) may be
submitted in hard copy or via fax or by e-mail (PREFERRED) under subject
"Abstract". The abstracts must be formatted to fit on 8-1/2 x 11 inch
(approximately 21.5 cm x 28 cm or European Standard A-4 size) paper, typed
in single space. The title must be capitalized and centered followed by
the author's name(s), institution, and full address, including fax and
e-mail. Send two copies (ONE copy if sent by fax or e-mail) of the
abstract to the session organizer before DECEMBER 23, 1996:
Dept of Molecular Biotechnology and Genome Center
