RECOMB - Research in Computational Molecular Biology is a well 
established conference in a dynamic field of science bridging computer 
science and biology. In 2005 the conference will be held in Cambridge, 
Massachusetts and promises to be the biggest and best yet with over 700 
attendees expected. The meeting consists of keynotes from the best 
scientists in the field and the latest research findings with 
presentations of contributed papers and posters.

Early (discounted) registration ends 4/4/05!

The RECOMB Conference series was founded in 1997 to provide a scientific 
forum for theoretical advances in computational biology and their 
applications in molecular biology and medicine.

The conference series aims at attracting research contributions in all 
areas of computational molecular biology. Typical, but not exclusive, 
the topics of interest are:
	Molecular sequence analysis
	Recognition of genes and regulatory elements
	Molecular evolution
	Protein structure
	Structural genomics
	Gene Expression
	Gene Networks
	Drug Design
	Combinatorial libraries
	Computational proteomics
	Structural and functional genomics

The origins of the conference came from the mathematical and 
computational side of the field, and there remains to be a certain focus 
on computational advances. However, the effective use of computational 
techniques to biological innovation is also an important aspect of the 

The conference had a growing number of attendees, topping 600 in recent 
years. We are preparing for up to 700 participants in 2005.

The conference program includes between 30 and 40 contributed papers, 
that are selected by an international program committee with around 30 
experts during a rigorous review process rivaling the editorial 
procedure for top-rate scientific journals. In previous years paper 
selection has been made from up to 130 submissions from well over a 
dozen countries.

A further point in the program is a lively poster session. Around 290 
posters were presented at RECOMB 2004.
