OVERVIEW AND SCOPE

Bioinformatics is a challenging and fast growing area of research,
which is of utmost importance for our understanding of life. Major
contributions to this discipline can have thousands of positive
effects in medicine, agriculture, or industry. To pick out only a few
examples, Bioinformatics tackles problems related to


* Recognition, analysis, and organization of DNA sequences. For
instance, Haplotype/Pedigree inference, Phylogenetic
reconstruction, Motif localization, and Alignments


* Biological systems simulations (for metabolic or regulatory
networks)


* Prediction of the spatial conformation of a bio-polymer, given its
sequence of monomers (in particular for proteins and RNA).


The main aim of this workshop is twofold. On the one hand, to share
recent results in this area (new ideas, systems and solvers that rely
on constraints, but also on Logic Programming, Answer Set Programming,
Linear Programming, Mixed Integer Linear Programming, Local Search,
and any other AI techniques, possibly combining some of them). On the
other hand, to present new challenging problems recently formalized
but still beyond current computing capabilities.


Submitted papers can be


* Extended Abstracts of new results or
* Abstract of ongoing works
* Systems presentations (with demos at the workshop)
* Summaries of already accepted or recently published results


in the topics above. Submission style is the standard llncs
style. Page limit is 6 pages.
Submission is handled by Easychair http://www.easychair.org/
