As we move into the  21st century, the unprecedented possibilities for
multidisciplinary research in biology are posed to concentrate a great
deal  of the  attention and  efforts  in science  and technology.  The
promising  perspectives include  not only  understanding  and treating
diseases, but also deciphering the  secrets of life from the molecular
to the  environmental levels.  At the same  time, the  vast complexity
underlying the  biological systems represents  a considerable obstacle
that  will only be  circumvented through  the combination  of powerful
mathematical  concepts and  methods, allied  to the  use  of effective
computational implementation and simulation.

The 1st  International Conference on  Bioinformatics and Computational
Biology (ICoBiCoBi), to be held in  Brazil from 14th to 16th May 2003,
represents  a  unique  opportunity  for bringing  together  under  the
unifying  theme  of  computer  science  a broad  series  of  concepts,
problems and applications in biology. Special attention will be placed
on the  combined use  of concepts and  techniques to  address relevant
problems in biology.

Prospective  authors are  encouraged to  submit  manuscripts reporting
high   quality  and  innovative   approaches  to   bioinformatics  and
computational  biology. Every  accepted manuscript  will  be published
electronically in  the WWW and considered  for subsequent publication,
in extended version, in print in the respective proceedings.
