[PVS] [ISBRA-L] CIGE'09 CFP -- Submission Deadline Jan. 19, 2009



2nd Workshop on Computational Issues in Genetic Epidemiology

May 13-16, 2009
Nova Southeastern University, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA


The Workshop on Computational Issues in Genetic Epidemiology (CIGE) provides a 
forum for computer scientists, geneticists, and statisticians aiming to address 
current computational challenges in gene mapping.  The first edition of CIGE, 
held on August 21-22, 2008 at the DIMACS center of Rutgers University, enjoyed 
a great success.  The second edition will be held in conjunction with the 5th 
International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications (ISBRA'09, 
http://www.cs.gsu.edu/isbra09/) on May 13-16, 2009 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Dealing with complex missing data patterns
* Effects of structural genomic variation
* Gene-gene and gene-environment interactions
* Multiple hypotheses testing
* Population substructure
* Using biological networks in whole-genome studies

We seek two categories of submissions: (1) papers for the proceedings volume 
and (2) abstracts for presentation.  Submission implies the willingness of at 
least one of the authors to register and present the paper/abstract at the 
symposium.

PROCEEDINGS PAPER SUBMISSION

Papers of up to 12 pages in Springer LNCS format should be submitted 
electronically at http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=isbra09 by 
selecting the "Workshop on Computational Issues in Genetic Epidemiology -- 
Proceedings Papers" track.  Accepted papers will be published as part of the 
ISBRA'09 proceedings in a volume of Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in 
Bioinformatics series.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

Abstracts of up to 4 pages in Springer LNCS format should be submitted 
electronically at http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=isbra09 by 
selecting the "Workshop on Computational Issues in Genetic Epidemiology -- 
Abstracts" track.  The abstracts accepted for either oral or poster 
presentation will be distributed in electronic form on the ISBRA'08 website and 
on CD-ROM.

TRAVEL SUPPORT

Pending approval from NSF, we expect to have partial financial support for 
graduate students and postdocs attending the workshop. Preference will be given 
to students and postdocs presenting at the workshop.
