  As part of my job, I have to say to people "no, I cannot explain to 
everything there is to know about bioinformatics through email" three times a 
day. If we keep this list non-moderated, this is where it is heading.

>BLC2003: Biological Language Conference : Final Call for papers
>UPDATE: The conference is being held in cooperation with American
>Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). Selected papers will be
>published in J. Applied Bioinformatics.
>Integration of language technologies in bioinformatics/computational
>biology research
>Protein sequences from different organisms may be viewed as texts written
>in different languages. The mapping of protein sequence to their structure,
>dynamics and function then becomes analogous to the mapping of words to
>meaning in natural languages. This analogy can be exploited by application
>of statistical language modeling and text classification techniques to
>biological sequences, thereby generating testable hypotheses regarding the
>fundamental building blocks of "protein sequence language".
>The biology-language analogy enables novel applications of language
>technologies to the biology domain, but is to a great extent overlapping
>with existing other computational biology/bioinformatics applications. The
>purpose of the Biological Language Conference is to facilitate scientific
>exchange between researchers using the language analogy approach directly
>and researchers using other approaches.
>We invite papers in the following areas of interest:
>secondary structure prediction
>tertiary structure prediction
>repetitive fold prediction
>membrane protein-specific prediction challenges
>protein folding/misfolding
>conformational changes
>genome evolution/comparison
>sequence alignment
>protein family classification
>immune system
>protein-protein interactions
>protein/gene networks and pathways
>Because of the challenge in bioinformatics research of involvement of
>non-biology domain experts in biology research, we also encourage
>submission of papers describing new approaches to cross-disciplinary 
>Venue and dates:
>November 20-21, 2003 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, USA
>The conference is organized by:
>        Profs. Raj Reddy and Judith Klein-Seetharaman
>        of the NSF-funded Center for Biological Language Modeling
>Papers should be a maximum of 15 pages and will be peer-reviewed. All
>accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings a selection of
>best papers will be published in J. Applied Bioinformatics. Papers should
