WABI 2015 Call for Papers
*EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MAY 18, 2015*
Atlanta, GA, September 10-12, 2015
WABI 2015 will be held in Atlanta during September 10-12, 2015 in
conjunction with ACM BCB 2015. The registration and accommodations for WABI
2015 are handled through ACM BCB 2015. The registration fee provides access
to all WABI events and all BCB events. WABI is sponsored by the ACM Special
Interest Group in Bioinformatics (SIGBio), the European Association for
Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), and the International Society for
Computational Biology (ISCB).
All research in algorithmic work in bioinformatics, computational biology
and systems biology. The emphasis is mainly on discrete algorithms and
machine-learning methods that address important problems in molecular
biology, that are founded on sound models, that are computationally
efficient, and that have been implemented and tested in simulations and on
real datasets. The goal is to present recent research results, including
significant work-in-progress, and to identify and explore directions of
Original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) or
state-of-the-art surveys are solicited in all aspects of algorithms in
bioinformatics, computational biology and systems biology - including, but
not limited to:
* Exact and approximate algorithms for sequence analysis, gene and signal
recognition, alignment and assembly, molecular evolution, structure
determination or prediction, gene expression, molecular pathways and
network, proteomics, functional and comparative genomics, and drug design.
* Methods, software, and data repositories for development and testing of
such algorithms and their underlying models, as well as high-performance
computing approaches to hard learning and optimization problems.
* Novel approaches to analyzing and modeling high throughput sequencing
data, including sequence assembly, population genomics, metagenomics,
metatranscriptomics, small RNA sequencing, bisulfite sequencing.
Submission deadline: May 18th, 2015 (Monday) *Firm Deadline*
Author notification: June 15th, 2015 (Monday)
Final version due: June 27th, 2015 (Saturday)
Workshop : September 10-12, 2015
Authors are invited to submit papers of at most 12 pages formatted in LaTeX
using the Springer LNCS style. Each paper must contain a succinct statement
of the issues and of their motivation, a summary of the main results, and a
brief explanation of their significance, all accessible to non-specialist
readers. All submissions must be made online, through the EasyChair
submission system in PDF format. Submission link is on the Workshop
Simultaneous submission to another conference with published proceedings is
not permitted, but simultaneous submission to a journal is allowed,
provided that the authors notify the program chairs; if published in a
journal, such a contribution will be published as a short abstract in the
The WABI proceedings will be published in LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer
Science), (Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics series) by Springer-Verlag.
Extended versions of selected WABI papers will be published in the journal
Algorithms for Molecular Biology (AMB).
