                   PSB 2005 Call for Participation


The tenth Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB), will be held
January 4-8, 2005 at the Fairmont Orchid on Big Island of Hawaii. PSB
will bring together top researchers from North America, the Asian
Pacific nations, Europe and around the world to exchange research
results and address open issues in all aspects of computational
biology. PSB will provide a forum for the presentation of work in
databases, algorithms, interfaces, visualization, modeling and other
computational methods, as applied to biological problems, with
emphasis on applications in data-rich areas of molecular biology. PSB
intends to attract a balanced combination of computer scientists and
biologists, presenting significant original research, demonstrating
computer systems, and facilitating formal and informal discussions on
topics of importance to computational biology.

To provide focus for the very broad area of biological computing, PSB
is organized into a series of specific sessions. Each session will
involve both formal research presentations and open discussion
groups. The 2005 PSB sessions are:

    * Inferring SNP Function Using Evolutionary, Structural and Computational Methods
    * Biogeometry: Applications of Computational Geometry to Molecular Structure
    * Inferring Function from Structural Genomics Targets
    * Computational Approaches for Pharmacogenomics
    * Joint Learning from Multiple Types of Genomic Data
    * Biomedical Ontologies 

Papers and posters

The core of the conference consists of rigorously peer-reviewed
full-length papers reporting on original work.  A list of accepted
papers can be found at http://psb.stanford.edu/accepted-papers2005.html

Researchers wishing to present their research without formal
publication are encouraged to submit a one page abstract by November
1, 2005 and to present their work in the poster sessions.

Hope to see you in Hawaii!
