WABI 2012 : Workshop on Algorithms for Bioinformatics


Conference Series : Workshop on Algorithms in Bioinformatics
When Sep 10, 2012 - Sep 12, 2012
Where Ljubljana, Slovenia
Submission Deadline TBD
Categories    bioinformatics   algorithm

Call For Papers


All research in algorithmic work in bioinformatics, computational biology and systems biology. The emphasis is mainly on discrete algorithms and machine-learning methods that address important problems in molecular biology, that are founded on sound models, that are computationally efficient, and that have been implemented and tested in simulations and on real datasets. The goal is to present recent research results, including significant work-in-progress, and to identify and explore directions of future research.

Original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) or state-of-the-art surveys are solicited in all aspects of algorithms in bioinformatics, computational biology and systems biology including, but not limited to:

Exact and approximate algorithms for sequence analysis, gene and signal recognition, alignment and assembly, molecular evolution, structure determination or prediction, gene expression, molecular pathways and network, proteomics, functional genomics, and drug design.
Methods, software, and dataset repositories for development and testing of such algorithms and their underlying models, as well as high-performance computing approaches to computationally hard learning and optimization problems.
Novel approaches to analyzing and modeling next-generation sequence data, including sequence assembly, population genomics, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics and ncRNA sequencing.

Call for Papers

Submissions must be formatted in LaTeX using the Springer LNCS style and must not exceed 12 pages. Each paper must contain a succinct statement of the issues and of their motivation, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance, all accessible to non-specialist readers. All submissions must be made online, through the EasyChair submission system. You need to register on that web site before submitting; you may update your submission(s) up to the last minute. A standard PDF file must be received by 23:59 (GMT) on May 18, 2012 in order for your submission to be considered. In case of problems, authors may, by prior arrangement, email a PDF file to the chairs, Ben Raphael and Jijun Tang.

Simultaneous submission to another conference with published proceedings is not permitted, but simultaneous submission to a journal is allowed, provided that the authors notify the program chairs; if published in a journal, such a contribution will be published as a short abstract in the WABI proceedings.

Proceedings will be published in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics; papers will be allotted 12 pages.

Previous proceedings of WABI appeared in LNCS/LNBI volumes 2149 (Aarhus 2001), 2452 (Rome 2002), 2812 (Budapest 2003), 3240 (Bergen 2004), 3692 (Mallorca 2005), 4175 (Zurich, 2006), 4645 (Philadelphia 2007), 5251 (Karlsruhe 2008), 5724 (Philadelphia 2009), 6293 (Liverpool 2010), and 6833 (Saarbr├╝cken 2011).

By arrangement with the Editor-in-Chief, selected papers from WABI will be invited for an extended publication in a special issue of the BMC Algorithms for Molecular Biology.
