Call for papers


9th International Symposium on Research and Applications (ISBRA2013)


Charlotte, North Carolina, May 20-22, 2013




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       High-performance bio-computing

Biomolecular imaging                                      High-throughput sequencing data analysis

Bio-ontologies                                                 Molecular evolution

Comparative genomics                                    Molecular modeling and simulation

Computational genetic epidemiology               Pattern discovery and classification

Computational proteomics                               Population genetics

Data mining and visualization              Software tools and applications

Gene _expression_ analysis                                 Structural biology

Genome analysis                                             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 Submissions. 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 (LNBI) series and presented orally at the symposium. 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. Accepted short abstracts will be distributed electronically and selected for either oral or poster presentation at the symposium. The authors of selected short abstracts will be invited to submit full versions to a peer-reviewed supplement to be published after the symposium by BMC Bioinformatics. Per current BMC policies, full versions of extended abstracts published in LNBI are not eligible for publication in the BMC supplement.
