1st   International Conference on
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

April 8-10, 2009

Holiday Inn Downtown-Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana  USA

Sponsored by the International Society for 
Computers and Their Applications (ISCA)

Computational techniques have already enabled 
unprecedented advances in modern biology and 
medicine. This continues to be a vibrant research 
area with broadening of computational techniques 
and new emerging challenges. The Bioinformatics 
and Computational Biology (BICoB) conference is 
thus established by the ISCA to promote the 
advancement of computing techniques and their 
application to life sciences. The inaugural BICoB 
conference will feature original unpublished 
research in all areas of bio-informatics and 
computational biology, and covering the entire 
spectrum of underlying computational 
techniques/models/paradigms.   The conference 
also includes a BEST PAPER AWARD given for a 
paper presented at the conference.  The topics of 
interest include (and are not limited to):

•   Genome analysis: Genome assembly, genome and 
chromosome annotation, gene 
finding,  alternative  splicing, EST analysis and comparative genomics.

•  Sequence analysis: Multiple sequence 
alignment, sequence search and 
clustering,  function prediction, motif 
discovery, functional site recognition in protein,
     RNA and DNA sequences.

•   Phylogenetics: Phylogeny estimation, models 
of evolution, comparative biological methods, population genetics.

•  Structural Bioinformatics: Structure matching, 
prediction, analysis and comparison; methods and 
tools for docking; protein design

•  Analysis of high-throughput biological data: 
Microarrays (nucleic acid, protein, array CGH, 
genome tiling, and other arrays), EST, SAGE, 
MPSS, proteomics, mass spectrometry.

•  Genetics and population analysis: Linkage 
analysis, association analysis, population 
simulation, haplotyping, marker discovery, genotype calling.

•  Systems biology: Systems approaches to 
molecular biology, multiscale modeling, pathways,gene networks.

Instructions to Authors

Papers will be accepted only by electronic 
submission (PDF only). Conference proceedings 
will be published by Springer in LNCS/LNBI, 
Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics. Papers should be 
formatted using Springer-Verlag format templates 
(www.springer.com/lncs). A full paper, including 
title, author's name(s) and affiliation, mailing 
address, telephone, fax and email of the 
principal author, should be submitted before 
November 1, 2008 at the following web site:

https://secure.myhostadvantage.com/V0015065FC/con-reg/default.asp?ConID=85 .

The submitted manuscript should closely reflect 
the final paper as it will appear in the 
Proceedings. Maximum paper length for the proceedings is 12 pages.
