[PVS] [ISBRA-L] ISBRA'10 call for short abstracts

               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
* Phylogenomics
* Population genetics
* Software tools and applications
* Structural biology
* Systems biology

Authors are invited to submit electronically short abstracts of up to 
4 pages (in Springer LNCS format) by following the instructions at


Accepted abstracts will be published online and on CD-ROM and selected 
for either oral or poster presentation.  Following the symposium, the 
authors will be invited to submit full papers to a peer-reviewed 
volume to be published in BMC Proceedings.


Thanks to our sponsors, a small number of travel fellowships will be 
available for graduate students and post-doctoral scholars. Preference 
will be given to those presenting their work at the symposium. Please 
submit a one-page vita and abstract of the poster or paper that will 
be presented to Dr. Raj Sunderraman (raj@cs.gsu.edu) with "ISBRA 2010 
Travel Fellowship" in the subject of the email. The requests are to be 
submitted by April 18, 2010.
