[BiO BB] Reminder: 3 weeks to abstract submission for AFP

The deadline for abstract submission for the First Automated Function
Prediction (AFP) meeting is approaching: April 26, 2005. The AFP meeting
will be held as a Special Interest Group meeting (SIG) just before ISMB
2005, on Friday, June 24, 2005 at /The Detroit Marriott Renaissance
Center, Detroit, MI USA./
The meeting will feature talks from various groups involved in protein
function prediction. Additionally, an open assessment of function
prediction servers will be held in the afternoon session.
If you are involved in computational function prediction, we would like
to see you there, preferably on the podium, telling us about your work.
An abstract submitted to the AFP will be in the conference proceedings,
but is not considered a publication, so you may publish your results
elsewhere as well.
Talks are sought in, but not limited to, the following topics:
* Function prediction using sequence based methods. This would
include "classic" methods such as detection of functional motifs
and inferring function from sequence similarity.
* Function from genomic information: prediction by genomic location;
locus comparison with other organisms; function gain and loss.
* Phylogeny based methods
* Function from molecular interactions
* Function from structure
* Function prediction using combined methods
* "Meta-talks" discussing the limitations and horizons of
computational function prediction.
* Assessing function prediction programs

We are looking forward to seeing you in June.
