--                LAST CALL FOR PAPERS                      --
--        CompLife '06   (http://www.complife.org/)         --
Following the success of the 1st International Symposium on
  Computational Life Science in Konstanz in September 2005
The 2nd International Symposium on Computational Life Science
                   is to be held in
    Cambridge, United Kingdom, on September 27 - 29, 2006

Topics of Interest

The focus of the symposium are computational methods for the
modeling, analysis and exploration of all aspects of life sciences,
ranging from effects on the molecular level to complex interactions

Of prime importance for this truly interdisciplinary event will be the
integration of the three disciplines Computer Science, Biology, and
Chemistry. The program will consist of contributed presentations
regarding applicational aspects as well as new theoretical

In addition, due to the interdisciplinary nature of the symposium
the program will feature not only plenary speakers but also a series
of short tutorials introducing relevant areas of the specific
research fields to the audience from the respective other fields
such as drug discovery, chemical similarity searching, receptor site
docking, protein structure prediction, data mining, machine learning,
to name a few.

Submissions will be reviewed by representatives of all fields to
make sure that not only the algorithmic aspects are suited for
publication but the application to life science is promising as well.

Submissions are sought in (but not limited to) the following areas:

# Molecular data analysis
# Systems biology
# Analysis of heterogenous information sources
# Human Computer Interaction in Information Mining
# Computational proteomics
# Integrative data analysis
# Statistical data analysis
# Data mining
# Molecular simulation
# Biological networks / Metabolism
# Molecular informatics
# Data pipelining
# Data visualization
# Large scale chemical computation
# Data integration/semantics
# Grid/web services
# Computer architectures in life sciences

The online submission system is open now. The link and further information
regarding the submission is available on the conference web site.

Student Grants

A limited number of Student Grants are available for CompLife 2006:
First priority will be given to full-time students who are first
authors of papers and present their paper at the conference. Grants
are handed out at the conference and will be in the amount of a
maximum of ?500, covering registration, travel, and accommodation.

When submitting a paper, students should indicate that they plan to
apply for a student grant.

Free Life Science Software Session

A special session about free software in Life Sciences, where
authors can present their programs, will be organised. For more
information have a look at the conference web page.
