Call For Papers

The workshop solicits original and previously-unpublished short papers (4-6 pages) on recent advancements in algorithms, computational molecular biology and bioinformatics. Interesting Works-in-progress are also welcome. We remark that BioS will not have formal proceedings. However, a booklet of accepted papers, without ISBN number, will be distributed at the workshop for the benefit of the community and must be regarded as a collection of preprints. Results presented at BioS may be published in other conferences with formal proceedings and/or in journals. Both papers reporting on original research unpublished elsewhere and surveys of important results are welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Approximation Algorithms
Biological Networks
Combinatorial Algorithms
Combinatorial Optimization
Comparative genomics
Computational Complexity
Computational Geometry
Computational Proteomics
Computational Structural Biology
Discrete Geometry
Data Structures
Evolution and phylogeny
Experimental Algorithm Methodologies
Motif search/discovery
Network Optimization
Online Algorithms
Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
Parameterized Complexity
Physical and genetic maps
Population and Statistical Genetics
Randomized Algorithms
RNA structure and function
Sequence analysis
String Algorithms
String processing in databases
Systems Biology
Text searching
Transcriptome, gene expression

There will be a "Best Paper" award. The winner(s) will be announced and awarded on the final day of the workshop. A special issue of a reputed journal is planned and will be conformed in the due course o time.

Call for Demos:

The workshop will host a demo session in order to showcase live demonstrations ("demo"s) in the areas of computational molecular biology and bioinformatics. Demos are intended to exhibit live operation of a working system or a small prototype of it. Innovative applications on desktop, mobile platforms and system prototypes around devices related to the intended topics can be qualified for demos.

We encourage both the academia and the industry to submit demos. Demo submission requires a short description (1-2 pages) highlighting the key aspects of the system, its usage and how the demo will be exhibited, especially if it solicits any interaction from the users or requires any special setup. The title of the submission should be prefixed with "DEMO:". A video of the demo, no longer than 2-minutes, can optionally be included in the submission.

Any device, tool or service (e.g. laptops, mobile phones, internet connection, etc.) needed to perform the demo should be brought and setup by the participants. The workshop venue will provide a table space and standard AC power.

There will be a "Best Demo" award. The winner(s) will be announced and awarded on the final day of the workshop.
