This is a bioinformatics conference that I help organize every year. This is an appropriate venue for theoretical and applied work in genetics and genetic epidemiology. Let me know if you are interested in submitting a paper and have questions. I hope to see you in Napoli!
**** EVOBIO 2008 ****
Sixth European Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics
26-28 March 2008, Napoli, Italyhttp://www.cs.vu.nl/~elena/evobio08.html
EvoBIO covers research in all aspects of Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics.
The goal of the conference is to not only present recent research resultsand to identify and explore directions of future research, but also stimulate synergy and cross fertilization among Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining for Bioinformatics.
The emphasis is on novel advanced techniques addressing important problems in molecular biology, proteomics, genomics and genetics, that have been implemented and tested in simulations and on real-life datasets.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* biomarker discovery
* cell simulation and modelling
* ecological modelling* fluxomics
* gene networks
* high-throughput biotechnology
* microarray analysis
* protein interaction
* sequence analysis and alignment
* biological networks analysis
* systems biology
EvoBIO started in 2002 as workshop organized by the EvoNet (European Network of Excellence in Evolutionary Computation) working group on bioinformatics, and was held annually since then.
The conference will be held in conjunction with the EuroGP (11th European Conference on Genetic Programming), EvoCOP 2008 (8th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimization) and EvoWorkshops 2008, the specialist workshops on a range of evolutionary computation topics and applications.
Submit your manuscript, at most 12 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS format (instructions are downloadable here
) using the online submission service no later than November 1,2007. The papers will be peer reviewed by at least two members of theprogram committee. Authors will be notified via email on the results of the review by December 15, 2007.
The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on thebasis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a cameraready version of their manuscripts, along with text sources and pictures, by January 8, 2008.
The accepted papers will appear in theconference proceedings, published in Springer LNCS Series, which will beavailable at the conference. The accepted papers of the previous editions of EvoBIO were published in the Springer Verlag LNCS 2611, 3005, 3449, 3449, 3449, 3907, 4447, respectively.
Each accepted paper will be presented orally or as a poster at the conference.
The authors of papers which receive the best reviews will be nominated for the 'Best paper Award'.
