The 2006 IAENG International Workshop on Bioinformatics

(Part of The International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer
Scientists IMECS 2006)

20-22 June, 2006, Hong Kong

The IWB'06 workshop is held as part of the International
MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2006. The IMECS
2006 is organized by the International Association of Engineers
(IAENG), and serves as good platforms for the engineering community
members to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. Extended version
of the papers under this workshop can be included in the special issue
of our journal Engineering Letters. And, further extended version can
also be included in a book called "Current Trends in Bioinformatics" to
be published by IAENG.

The IMECS 2006 multiconference has the focus on the frontier topics in
the theoretical and applied engineering and computer science subjects.
It consists of 14 workshops (see the details at IMECS website:
www.iaeng.org/IMECS2006). The multiconference serves as good platforms
for the engineering community members of different disciplines to meet
with each other and to exchange ideas. The current conference committee
of the IMECS 2006 includes over 140 workshop co-chairs and committee
members of mainly research center heads, department heads, professors,
research scientists from over 20 countries, while a few of the
committee members are also experienced software development directors
and engineers.

All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers will
be published in the conference proceeding (ISBN: 988-98671-3-3). The
abstracts will be indexed and available at major academic databases.
The Technology Research Databases (TRD) of CSA (Cambridge Scientific
Abstracts), DBLP and Computer Science Bibliographies have promised to
index the print proceeding in advance of its publication. And after the
publication of the proceeding, print copies will also be sent to
databases like IEE INSPEC, Engineering Index (EI) and ISI Thomson
Scientific for indexing. The accepted papers will also be considered
for publication in the special issues of the journal Engineering
Letters. Some participants may also be invited to submit extended
version of their conference papers for considering as book chapters
(soon after the conference).

The topics of the workshop include, but not limited to, the following:

Sequence analysis
Sequence alignment
Sequence database
Sequence profiling tools
Sequence motif
Genome annotation
Gene finding
Computational evolutionary biology
Gene expression analysis
Protein expression analysis
Analysis of mutations in cancer and other diseases

Structure prediction
Structural motif
Preserving biodiversity
Modeling biological systems
Software tools
And other applications


Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper in abstract
format (one page) or in full paper format to imecs at iaeng.org by 12
March, 2006. The submitted file can be in MS Word format, PS format, or
PDF formats.

The first page of the draft paper should include:

=A1P Title of the paper;
=A1P Name, affiliation and e-mail address for each author;
=A1P A maximum of 5 keywords of the paper;

Also, the name of the workshop session that the paper is being
submitted to should be stated in the email.

Important Dates:
