                             AND BIOINFORMATICS

                   University of Essex, April 14-16, 2003


EvoBIO is the first workshop of the newly formed EvoNet (European Network o=
Excellence in Evolutionary Computation) working group on bioinformatics.

EvoBIO covers research in all aspects of computational intelligence in
bioinformatics and computational biology.

The emphasis is on algorithms based on evolutionary computation, on neural
networks and on other novel optimisation and machine learning methods,
that address important problems in molecular biology, genomics and genetics=
that are computationally efficient, and that have been implemented and test=
in simulations and on real datasets.

The goal of the workshop is to present recent research results, including
significant work-in-progress, and to identify and explore directions of
future research, besides stimulating closer interaction between members of
this scientific community working on Bioinformatics.

Each accepted paper will be presented orally at the workshop and printed in
the proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS series.

The workshop is sponsored by EvoNet, the Network of Excellence in
Evolutionary Computing, and will be held in conjunction with EuroGP2003, th=
European Conference on Genetic Programming (April 14-16).


To submit, send your manuscript (postscript or PDF, maximum length: 10 A4
pages) via email to evobio@cs.vu.nl no later than November 20, 2002.
Formatting instructions can be found at
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/instruct/typeinst.pdf The papers will be
peer reviewed by three members of the program committee. Authors will be
notified via email on the results of the review by December 20, 2002.

The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the basi=
of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version
of their manuscripts by January 17, 2003.

By submitting a camera-ready paper, the author(s) agree that at least one
author will attend and present each accepted paper at the workshop.
