DNA 2016 : International Conference on DNA Computing and Molecular Programming
Call For Papers
Research in DNA computing and molecular programming draws together mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, and nanotechnology to address the analysis, design, and synthesis of information-based molecular systems. This annual meeting is the premier forum where scientists with diverse backgrounds come together with the common purpose of advancing the engineering and science of biology and chemistry from the point of view of computer science, physics, and mathematics. Continuing this tradition, the 22nd International Conference on DNA Computing and Molecular Programming (DNA22), under the auspices of the International Society for Nanoscale Science, Computation and Engineering (ISNSCE), will focus on the most recent experimental and theoretical results that promise the greatest impact.
I. Submissions to be considered for oral presentations
Authors submitting a paper and/or proposal for a presentation may choose between two submission tracks. Submissions for oral presentations can be submitted to one of the two tracks (A) or (B).
Track A - Full Paper: For authors who want their full papers to be published in the conference proceedings. Submissions (a single .pdf file) should conform to the following guidelines:
• The total length of the paper does not exceed 12 pages and is expected to be formatted in LATEX for the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Please follow the formatting instructions at: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
• Each paper should contain an abstract which briefly describes the primary results and their importance.
• Selected papers will be published in the proceedings, available at the conference and as part of the LNCS series. Submissions to Track A may not be previously published or simultaneously submitted to another conference or journal for publication.
Track B - One page abstract with accompanied material: Primarily for authors submitting experimental results who plan to submit to a journal rather than publish in the conference proceedings. (Abstracts for work recently submitted to or published in a journal will also be considered.) To be considered for oral presentation submissions should conform to the following guidelines:
A single .pdf file containing
• A one-page abstract: The total length of the abstract should not exceed 1 page (11 point type, single spaced, 1 inch margins). The one-page abstract must describe the primary results and their importance.
• Accompanied documentation: Authors must attach to the abstract a preliminary manuscript, a thesis chapter or some other form of supporting documentation that can be used by the program committee to evaluate the merit of the work for oral presentation. Only the one-page abstract will appear in the supplementary proceedings at the conference. Track B papers unaccompanied by adequate documentation will not be eligible for oral presentation.
II. Poster submissions (Track C)
For authors interested in presenting their work only in the poster session, the abstract submission will be through the same website (http://www.dna22.eu). The submission deadline is June 14, 2016. All poster submissions should conform to the following guidelines:
• The total length of the abstract should not exceed 1 page (11 point type, single spaced, 1 inch margins).
• The one-page abstract should describe the primary results and their importance.
