Workflows management: new abilities for the biological information overflow
5-7 October, 2005, Second University of Naples, Naples, Italy

Web page : http://www.nettab.org/2005
Call for Papers: http://www.nettab.org/2005/call.html

TOPICS

Submitted contributions should address one or more of the following topics:

Technologies and technological platforms of interest to the field,
with emphasis on:
- Web Services (SOAP, WSDL, WSFL, UDDI, ....)
- Web Services Choreography and Orchestration
- Semantic Web (RDF, LSID, OWL, ...)
- comparison of available technologies, limitations, pros and cons
- Knowledge representation
- Biological data and knowledge modeling tools
- Ontologies, Databases and Applications of Semantics in Bioinformatics

Workflow management systems in bioinformatics:
- implementations of web services
- implementations of registries
- reuse and versioning of web services and workflows
- workflow management systems
- web interfaces for accessing and executing workflows
- interactive systems to support work flows

Applications of workflow management systems in bioinformatics
- Methodologies for life sciences analysis:
   gene expression, genome annotation, mass spec peptide fragment
   identification, etc...
- Encoding of the above in workflows
- Case studies
- Scenarios and use cases

SUBMISSION OF CONTRIBUTIONS

Abstracts can be submitted now through the NETTAB 2005 Paper Review System 
availble at the workshop web site.

Authors are invited to submit:

ORAL PRESENTATIONS:
submit an extended abstract (4-5 A4 pages, size 12pt, MS Word format). 
Abstracts will be reviewed and acceptance   or rejection will be 
communicated to authors. All submissions for oral presentation which are 
not selected will automatically be considered for posters presentation.

POSTERS:
submit an extended abstract (2-3 A4 pages, size 12pt, MS Word format). 
Abstracts will be reviewed by relevance and acceptance or   rejection will 
be communicated to authors.

POSITION PAPERS:
submit a short abstract (max 1 A4 pages in length, size 12pt, MS Word 
format) specifying research interests and issues to be debated during the 
workshop. Authors submitting position papers do not engage themselves to 
present a poster. Instead, they will be invited to introduce the issues 
they arose before open discussion sessions.

Contributions will be reviewed by the scientific committee for relevance, 
clarity and novelty of results.

Accepted oral presentations, posters and position papers will be published 
in the conference proceedings.
Authors of a selection of best papers will be asked to submit an extended 
version of their paper in view of a joint submission to a peer-reviewed 
international journal.
