Dear colleague,

We would greatly appreciated it if you could post the CSB2003 Call For
Papers to your mailing list.

We are a new group and need the help of the community to let everyone know
about the conference. Also we would be glad to reciprocate in whatever way
we can.  For instance we could post your link on our website
http://conferences.computer.org/bioinformatics.  If this is of interest to
you, please send link details to Jean Tsukamoto



PAPER submission date
April 1, 2003


IEEE Computer Society Bioinformatics Conference
Stanford, California
August 11-14, 2003

There are only 13 days left to submit your paper to CSB2003. Please check
your calendars and make sure your submission reaches us by the APRIL 1ST

You are invited to submit a paper to the 2003 IEEE Computer Society
Bioinformatics Conference (CSB2003). The conference’s goal is to facilitate
collaboration between computer scientists and biologists by presenting
cutting edge computational biology research findings. While such research
has an interdisciplinary character, CSB2003 emphasizes the computational
aspects of bioinformatics research. Computer science papers must show
biological relevance, and biology papers must stress the computational
aspects of the results.

 	CSB2003 will accept 27 papers for  podium presentation, and these will  be
published in the IEEE conference proceedings. Topics of interest include
(but are not limited to):

· Machine learning		· String & Graph Algorithms
· Data Mining			· Genome to Life
· Robotics 			· Stochastic Modeling
· Data Visualization		· Genomics and Proteomics
· Regulatory Networks	· Gene Expression Pathways
· Comparative Genomics 	· Evolution and Phylogenetics
· Pattern Recognition  	· Molecular Structures & Interactions

Papers are limited to 12 pages, single spaced, in 12 point type, including
title, abstract (250 words or less), figures, tables, text, and
bibliography. The first page should give keywords, authors’ postal and
electronic mailing addresses. Submit papers electronically to
bioinformatics@computer.org in either postscript or PDF format. A select
subset of accepted papers will be invited to also publish in the Journal of
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

The Best Paper will be selected by the Program Committee and announced at
the awards ceremony.  An HP laptop will be given to the first author of the
Best Paper.-

Submissions must be received no later than April 1, 2003. Authors will be
notified of their submission's status by May 19, 2003, and final corrected
versions must be received by June 14, 2003.
