I apologize if you receive multiple copies of this call.


                                 Call for Papers
************************************************************************
  Special Session on Biological Data Mining and Management
                                        in
The 2001 International Conference on Mathematics and
Engineering Techniques in Medicine and Biological Sciences
                               (METMBS' 2001)


                              June 25 - 28, 2001
             Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
************************************************************************


The completion of genome sequences has produced sufficient
data for biological experiments, and the advent of the microarray
and genechip technology has resulted in the expanded ability of
monitoring simultaneously the gene expression level changes on
a genomic scale. Ever since efficient and relatively cheap methods
were developed for the acquisition of biological data, analysis
and management of biological data has become the primary problem
in molecular biology. The purpose of this special session is to
allow researchers to introduce their work or ideas on important
issues regarding biological data mining and data management.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* biosequence alignment
* motif detection in biosequences
* gene finding
* gene family classification
* gene expression data management
* protein structure and function prediction


Prospective authors are invited to submit three copies of their draft paper
(about 4 pages) to either of the following addresses by
Thursday March 1, 2001:
