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