Dear Colleague,

It is our pleasure to announce the Sixth Annual RECOMB Satellite 
Meeting on Comparative Genomics and issue this call for submissions. 
We are looking forward to another great meeting, this year in Paris, 
France. We have an exciting group of confirmed keynote speakers, and 
anticipate a vibrant series of "late breaking talks" selected from the 
paper and poster submissions. Please consider submitting your own work 
for papers, posters, and talks. Submission details can be found below 
and on the conference website: http://igm.univ-mlv.fr/RCG08

Best Regards,

  Craig Nelson & Stephane Vialette (PC Co-chairs)
  Jens Lagergren, Aoife McLysaght, & David Sankoff (Steering Committee)

Poster submission deadline

Papers should be submitted via the EasyChair system. Submissions must 
be received in electronic form by 11:59pm (Paris local time), June 
16th, 2008.

Submissions should be no longer than 12 single-spaced A4 pages with 
1.25-inch margins all around, everything included (title, authors, 
addresses, abstract, references, figures, tables), in at least a 
10-point font. An optional short appendix may contain details or 
additional data to be consulted at the discretion of the program 
committee. Note that authors of accepted papers will have to reformat 
them for the proceedings using the Springer LNCS style, which has even 
wider margins. It may save the authors' some work if this format is 
used from the outset. The submission must include the corresponding 
author's email address. Papers submitted for review should represent 
original, previously unpublished work. At the time the paper is 
submitted to the conference, and for the entire review period, the 
paper should not be under review by any other conference or scientific 

Note that accepted papers will be considered as preliminary work, and 
may be submitted to a journal publication after notification of 

Successful submissions will be invited for a 20-minute presentation, 
and the paper will be printed in the conference proceedings, which 
will be published by Springer in the "Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics" 
series. Address any questions to the program committee chairs: Craig 
E. Nelson (Craig.Nelson at uconn.edu) Stephane Vialette

Rapid DNA sequencing technologies have fueled an explosion in genome 
level data. RECOMB-CG is devoted to the development and utilization of 
computational methods for the comparative exploration of genome 
structure, function, and evolution. Both theoretical and applied 
contributions are welcome, and papers that combine new techniques with 
new knowledge derived from their application are highly encouraged. 
Submissions should include genome wide analyses informed by 
comparative data. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Algorithms for comparative genomics
Genome rearrangements
Ancestral genome reconstruction
Multiple genome alignment
Genome sequence comparison
Modeling genome evolution
Identification, classification, and evolution of non-coding motifs
Comparative genomics for genome annotation
Gene and genome duplication
Evolution of gene families
Identification of highly conserved and rapidly evolving sequences
Gene tree reconciliation
Comparative genomics and epigenetics
Comparative genomics and proteomics
Comparative genomics and gene expression
Comparative genomics and adaptation
