B I O I N F O R M A T I C S  (GCB'04)
Bielefeld University, October 4th - October 6th, 2004

The GCB is a medium sized conference that brings together researchers
in bioinformatics and computational biology, including researchers
from molecular biology, biochemistry and computer science that want to
join this exciting interdisciplinary field.


Contributions for this year's GCB are solicited in the following

- Regular Papers
Regular Papers should be written as extended abstracts of about 8
pages and will be published in the conference proceedings. They will
be judged by the originality and relevance of the work as well as the
quality of presentation.

- Discovery Notes
Discovery Notes should report on recent biological findings using
established computational methods. They should be submitted in the
form of a one page abstract, and will be judged by the relevance of
the findings.

- Software Demonstrations
Software Demonstrations should present recently developed tools
solving current open problems. They should comprise an abstract of
about 4 pages and a link to a WWW based installation where the tool
can be evaluated.
They will be presented at the conference in the form of a live
demonstration of their usage. Industrial contributions are welcome,
provided they are written according to scientific standards.

All abstracts should be submitted as documents in PDF or Postscript
format by the electronic submission page that will be set up at the
GCB web site. Postal and electronic mailing adresses, telephone and
fax numbers must be included.

All submissions are subject to a blind refereeing process. 
Each accepted contribution will be presented at the conference in a 20
minute presentation.
Contributions should report on original research in any relevant field
of Bioinformatics.
