CALL FOR PAPERS (full text available at the website)

This Special Track is designed to bring together computer scientists,
biologists and clinicians for exploring the current state-of-the-art
research taking place in all aspects of computational proteomics, from
basic science to clinical practice. The track intends to provide a forum
for the presentation of original research, valuable software tools
(basic algorithms, modelling, analysis, and visualization tools,
databases), and clinical fallouts, on topics of importance to
computational proteomics, with special emphasis on MS-based approaches.

Methods, algorithms and techniques for proteomics data organization,
storage and analysis, as well as the use of proteomics methods and
techniques in clinical practice are the key topics of this Special
Track. Whatever technique being used, proteomics data are huge, involve
heterogeneous platforms and require high performance computing, so
presentation of high performance and Grid-based computational methods,
as well as semantic-rich methods for in silico workflow composition are
welcomed. Examples of areas of interest include, but are not restricted

* Spectra data models and databases
* Spectra-related data banks (e.g. Mascot, Sequest)
* Spectra pre-processing algorithms
* Peptide/protein identification
* Protein-protein interactions
* Data Mining techniques for proteomics data
* Statistical analysis of proteomics data
* Image analysis and visualization of proteomics data
* 2-D Gel proteomics data and analysis
* Virtual Proteomics Laboratory
* Data integration and proteomics
* Technologies and models to store phenotype, genotype and proteotype data;
* Integration of proteomics and clinical data for diagnosis and treatment
* Application of proteomics methods in clinical practice
* Workflow of proteomics experiments
* Knowledge Management and ontologies in proteomics
* Parallel and Grid-based computational proteomics
* Standards in proteomics

January 31, 2006	Deadline for paper submissions
March 1, 2006		Notification of acceptance
April 5, 2006		Final camera-ready paper (6 pages, maximum) due
April 8, 2006		Pre-registration deadline

PAPER SUBMISSION (full text available at the website)

Interested authors should submit a 3-6 pages manuscript (or
approximately 1500-3000 words) clearly describing background, goals,
methods, results and a listing of primary references. Presented material
should include sufficient detail to enable the program committee in
reviewing the article.
