[PVS] [ISBRA-L] ISBRA'10 -- Submission deadline in 3 days

                       CALL FOR PAPERS

      6th International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research
                  and Applications (ISBRA'10)

                        May 23-26, 2010
           University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, USA

The International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications (ISBRA) 
provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results among researchers, 
developers, and practitioners working on all aspects of bioinformatics and 
computational biology and their applications.  Submissions presenting original 
research are solicited in all areas of bioinformatics and computational 
biology, including the development of experimental or commercial systems. 
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Biomedical databases and data integration
* Biomolecular imaging
* Bio-ontologies
* Comparative genomics
* Computational genetic epidemiology
* Computational proteomics
* Data mining and visualization
* Gene expression analysis
* Genome analysis
* High-performance bio-computing
* High-throughput sequencing data analysis
* Molecular evolution
* Molecular modeling and simulation
* Pattern discovery and classification
* Population genetics
* Software tools and applications
* Structural biology
* Systems biology

We seek two categories of submissions: extended abstracts of up to 12 pages in 
Springer LNCS format, and short abstracts of up to 4 pages.  Both types of 
submissions must be made electronically by following the instructions at


Submission implies willingness of at least one author to register and present 
at the symposium.

Accepted extended abstracts will be published prior to the symposium in 
Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics series and presented orally 
at the symposium.  Accepted short abstracts will be published online and on 
CD-ROM and selected for either oral or poster presentation.  As in previous 
years, full versions of selected extended abstracts presented at the symposium 
will be invited to a peer-reviewed special issue of IEEE/ACM Transactions on 
Computational Biology and Bioinformatics.  The authors of remaining extended 
and short abstracts will be invited to submit full versions to a peer-reviewed 
volume to be published after the symposium in BMC Proceedings.
