CALL FOR SITE PROPOSALS
FOR ISMB 2001 through 2004
International Conference on
Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology
SITE PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINES:
* ISMB 2001: DECEMBER 1, 1999
* ISMB 2002 and 2003: NOVEMBER 1, 2000
* ISMB 2004: NOVEMBER 1, 2001
We solicit site proposals by potential organizers of the summer 2001
International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology
(ISMB'01) and subsequent meetings. The conference provides a general
forum for disseminating the latest developments in bioinformatics.
It is run under the auspices of the International Society for
Computational Biology, which provides some organizational assistance
to conference organizers.
The multidisciplinary ISMB conference brings together scientists from
molecular biology, computer science, mathematics, and statistics. Its
scope includes the development and application of advanced
computational methods for biological problems. Biological areas of
interest include molecular structure, genomics, molecular sequence
analysis, evolution and phylogenetics, metabolic pathways, regulatory
networks, developmental control, and molecular biology generally.
Relevant computational techniques include, but are not limited to,
machine learning, pattern recognition, knowledge representation,
databases, combinatorics, stochastic modeling, string and graph
algorithms, linguistic methods, robotics, constraint satisfaction, and
parallel computation. Emphasis is placed on the validation of methods
using real data sets, on practical application in the biological
sciences, and on development of novel computational techniques.
Past ISMB conferences have been held inside and outside North America
in alternate years. Therefore, the selection committee will give some
preference to proposals to hold ISMB'01 outside of North America. The
conference typically is held in late June or July, but has flexibility
to accommodate special circumstances.
The submission deadline for site proposals for summer 2001 (ISMB'01)
is December 1, 1999. The deadline for site proposals for the years
2002 and 2003 is November 1, 2000. The deadlines for site proposals
for the year 2004 is November 1, 2001.
