ECCB workshops: Call for papers and posters

5th European Conference on Computational Biology - ECCB '06
September 10-13, 2006
Eilat, Israel
www.eccb06.org <http://www.eccb06.org/>

Papers and posters are solicited for two full-day workshops that will be 
held on the first day of ECCB, Sunday, September 10.

** BioSapiens Workshop on Genome Annotation

This workshop, sponsored by the BioSapiens consortium, will bring 
together an international group of experts to discuss functional aspects 
of genome annotation. The goals are to create an open forum to discuss 
current problems on function annotation, to foster the analysis of key 
scientific issues in function prediction, and promote collaboration 
among scientists interested in the development of computational methods 
in this key area of molecular biology and to foster the interactions 
between computational and experimental scientists in the field. The 
program will cover five topics:

1. Large scale studies of membrane proteins
2. Whole genomes annotation
3. Alternative splicing
4. Structural genomics
5. Cross-indexing between biological databases

Posters will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, until 
August 10.

** Distributed, High-Performance & Grid Computing in Computational 
Biology (GCCB)

The GCCB Workshop will bring together computational biologists, 
bioinformaticians, and life scientists who have researched and applied 
distributed, high-performance and grid computing technologies in the 
context of computational biology and bioinformatics. The workshop will 
discuss innovative work in progress and important new directions. 
Contributions of interest will address topics related to the 
development, deployment, application and evaluation of distributed, 
high-performance and grid computing technologies in the context of the 
following computational biology and bioinformatics areas.

The deadline for submitting manuscripts is July 15. Accepted papers will 
be presented orally or as posters at the workshop. Selected accepted 
papers will be published in Springer's LNBI proceedings.
