RECOMB Comparative Genomics 2017
The annual RECOMB Comparative Genomics Satellite Conference (RECOMB-CG) brings together leading researchers in the mathematical, computational and life sciences to discuss cutting edge research in comparative genomics, with an emphasis on computational approaches and the analysis of novel experimental results. The program will include keynote talks, contributed talks, and a poster session.
The 15th RECOMB-CG conference will be held in the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), Barcelona, Spain, on October 04-06 2017. With this Call for Papers we invite high-quality original full papers on topics related to the conference theme. The conference will also have a poster session. A detailed call for posters will be published later on the conference web page:
Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:
• genome evolution
• genome rearrangements
• genome variation, diversity and dynamics
• comparative tools for genome assembly
• population genomics
• comparison of functional networks
• comparative epigenomics
• cancer evolution genomics
• gene identification and/or annotation
• Paper Submission Deadline: June 11, 2017
• Author Notification: July 07, 2017
• Final Version Due: July 21, 2017
• Conference: October 04-06, 2017
DETAILS ON SUBMITTING MANUSCRIPTS
Submitted papers must have not been published or be currently under consideration for publication in any other journal or conference with formal proceedings. Each accepted paper has to be presented by one of the authors at the conference.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, a volume in the Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series. In addition, arrangements are being sought for providing extended publication with additional refereeing in a prestigious journal in the area. These arrangements may involve Open Access journals, in which case there will be an author fee in the event that an article is accepted.
Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts in PDF format according to the LNBI series guidelines:
Submitted papers must be within 15 pages, with optionally a clearly marked appendix containing supplementary material made available to the reviewers.
All submissions must be made online, through the EasyChair submission system, at the following address:
Authors need to register on that web site before submitting. A standard PDF file must be received by midnight on June 11, 2017 (any time zone) in order for a submission to be considered. Re-submission of already submitted papers will be possible until midnight June 11, 2017 (any time zone).
