Call for Papers
Participation is invited from the international scientific community active
in the development of concepts and applications in the general focus of the
conference. Contributions are solicited in the form of full papers (8-12
pages) or extended abstracts ( 3-7 pages). Accepted contributions will be
included in the conference proceedings, and will be given an oral
presentation at the conference. In some cases, the presentation may include
a live software demonstration.
For a selection of the extended abstracts (but not the full papers)
presented at the conference, the scientific committee will invite authors to
provide a full paper version for publication in a special issue of
BIOINFORMATICS (formerly: CABIOS). These manuscripts will be subject to the
regular BIOINFORMATICS review procedure (3 referees).
Full Papers as well as extended abstracts should be single-spaced and set in
12 point type, including title, abstract, figures, tables, and bibliography.
Postal and electronic mailing addresses, telephone, and fax numbers must be
