Call For Papers

AlCoB aims at promoting and displaying excellent research using string and graph algorithms and combinatorial optimization to deal with problems in biological sequence analysis, genome rearrangement, evolutionary trees, and structure prediction.

Previous events were held in Tarragona, Mexico City, and Trujillo.

The conference will address several of the current challenges in computational biology by investigating algorithms aimed at:
assembling sequence reads into a complete genome,
identifying gene structures in the genome,
recognizing regulatory motifs,
aligning nucleotides and comparing genomes,
reconstructing regulatory networks of genes, and
inferring the evolutionary phylogeny of species.
Particular focus will be put on methodology and significant room will be reserved to young scholars at the beginning of their career.

Organised by
Center for Research & Development in Mathematics and Applications (CIDMA). University of Aveiro.
Institute of Electronics and Informatics Engineering of Aveiro (IEETA). University of Aveiro.
Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics (GRLMC) from Rovira i Virgili University (URV)
AlCoB 2017 will take place in Aveiro, an industrial city with an important seaport on the Atlantic Ocean, and known as "the Portuguese Venice" due to its network of canals. The venue will be the Department of Mathematics of the University of Aveiro, Campus Universitário de Santiago, 3810-193 Aveiro.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:

Exact sequence analysis
Approximate sequence analysis
Pairwise sequence alignment
Multiple sequence alignment
Sequence assembly
Genome rearrangement
Regulatory motif finding
Phylogeny reconstruction
Phylogeny comparison
Structure prediction
Compressive genomics
Proteomics: molecular pathways, interaction networks
Transcriptomics: splicing variants, isoform inference and quantification, differential analysis
Next-generation sequencing: population genomics, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics
Microbiome analysis
Systems biology
AlCoB 2017 will consist of:

invited lectures
invited tutorials
peer-reviewed contributions
Authors are invited to submit non-anonymized papers in English presenting original and unpublished research. Papers should not exceed 12 single-spaced pages (including eventual appendices, references, proofs, graphics, etc.) and should be prepared according to the standard format for Springer Verlag's LNCS series (see
