Call for Papers

  General Description

You are invited to submit a paper to the 6th International Symposium on Computational Biology and Genome Informatics (CBGI 2005). The conference is held as part of the 8th Joint Conference on Information Sciences (JCIS 2005) in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, July 21-26, 2005. This conference intends to bring together theorists and practitioners all over the world to enhance bioinformatics research. The aim is to provide an interdisciplinary platform so that development of new computational techniques with important biological insights can flourish. This goal is facilitated with the jointly held engineering conferences organized simultaneously at the same location, so that inbreeding of ideas can occur.

   Scope:

All areas of computational biology, proteomics and genome informatics will be considered. Some suggested areas are described below:

    Pattern discovery techniques in bioinformatics

1.1

Sequence analysis

1.2

Pattern matching and searching

1.3

Information theory and statistical analysis

1.4
