RECOMB 2017 : The 21st Annual International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology
Conference Series : Research in Computational Molecular Biology
Call For Papers
A manuscript should start with a succinct statement of the problem, the results achieved, their significance, and a comparison with previous work. This material should be understandable to non-specialists. A technical exposition directed to the specialist should follow. The length, excluding cover page and bibliography, should not exceed 10 pages. The manuscript should be easy to read, using at least 11 point font size on U.S. standard 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper with no less than one inch margin all around.
If the authors believe that more details are absolutely necessary to substantiate the claims of the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix, which might be read at the discretion of the reviewers. An email address for the contact author should be included. Manuscripts that deviate significantly from these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Procedures and Notification
Submission of papers to RECOMB2017 will be through the EasyChair conference system. The submission system is now open and submissions will close on October 28, 2016. For submissions, use this submission link.
The Program Committee, chaired by Cenk Sahinalp (Indiana University, Bloomington), will referee the conference submissions. Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by email on or before December 16, 2016. We request that an author of each accepted paper provides LaTeX files or an MS Word file in the special format for Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics by January 16, 2017.
An author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the conference and present the paper; in case of unexpected circumstances, alternative arrangements, approved by the conference chair, should be made to have the paper presented.
RECOMB is partnering with Cell Systems and Journal of Computational Biology. Authors of selected accepted papers will be invited, but not required, to submit an edited journal version for a special issue of Cell Systems (as detailed below) or Journal of Computational Biology.
