PRIB 2008 is aimed at bringing together top researchers, practitioners,
and students from around the world to discuss the applications of
pattern recognition methods in the field of bioinformatics to solve
problems in life sciences. Pattern recognition techniques of interest
include: statistical, syntactic, and structural approaches, Bayesian,
hidden Markov and graphical models, neural networks, fuzzy and genetic
algorithms, data mining, and their hybrids. Papers in areas of (but not
limited to) bio-sequence analysis, gene and protein expression analysis,
structure prediction, protein folding, docking, metabolic pathway
analysis and regulatory networks, system biology, drug design, and
bioimaging, are solicited for presentation at the conference.

All papers will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be published
in the conference proceedings as an edited volume in Lecture Notes in
Bioinformatics by Springer. Submission of papers will be electronic and
through the conference website. Proposals for special sessions and
tutorials at the conference are also invited in all related areas of
research. Authors of selected papers presented at the conference will
also be invited for publication in Special Issues of reputed journals.
