**************************  SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS  **************************
CIBB 2007 - Fourth International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods 
            for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics
Hotel Portofino Kulm - Portofino Vetta, Ruta di Camogli (Genova), Italy
             July  7-10, 2007
Conference website: http://cibb07.dsi.unimi.it

The main goal of this meeting is to provide a forum open to researchers from different disciplines 
to present and discuss problems relative to computational techniques in bioinformatics 
with a particular focus on supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 
sequence analysis; transcriptomics; proteomics; evolution and philogeny; comparative genomics; 
bio-medical text mining and imaging; heterogeneous data integration for diagnostics.
For a more detailed list of covered research areas, please visit our website:

We invite to submit papers that will be published on Springer's Lecture Notes on Computer Science.
Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of
Artificial Intelligence in Medicine.

The scientific program will include, besides an invited talk of
Joaquin Dopazo (Centro de Investigación Príncipe Felipe, Valencia, Spain),
accepted papers that will be presented in plenary oral sessions.

Paper submission:
Papers must be written in Latex in Lecture Notes on Computer Science Springer format following
