The conference dates have shifted by one day.
The new dates are May 7-10, 2007.

The submission deadline for the 2007 International Symposium on
Bioinformatics Research and Applications is *DECEMBER 20*, just two
weeks from now! Don't miss this opportunity to present your work in
front of an international audience.

For your convenience, the original call for papers appears below.

International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications
May 7-10, 2007
Georgia State University
Atlanta, Georgia

The International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications
(ISBRA) provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results among
researchers, developers, and practitioners working on all aspects of
bioinformatics and computational biology and their applications. ISBRA
is the successor to the International Workshop on Bioinformatics
Research and Applications (IWBRA), held on May 22-25, 2005 in Atlanta,
Georgia and on May 28-31, 2006 in Reading, UK in conjunction with the
International Conference on Computational Science. The two IWBRA
workshops were a great success, with special issues of Springer LNCS
Transactions on Computational Systems Biology and IEEE/ACM Transactions
on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics being devoted to full
versions of selected papers. The proceedings of ISBRA 2007 will be
published in the Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics
series, and it is anticipated that a special issue of a major
bioinformatics journal will be devoted to expanded versions of the best
symposium papers.

Authors are invited to submit papers that present original unpublished
research in all areas of bioinformatics, including the development of
experimental or commercial systems. Surveys of important recent results
and directions are also welcome. Topics of interest include but are not
limited to:

* Biomedical image processing
* Bio-ontology and data mining
* Computational genetics
* Comparative genomics
* Databases and data integration
* Gene expression and microarrays
* Gene identification and annotation
* Immunoinformatics
* Molecular evolution and phylogeny
* Molecular modeling and simulation
* Parallel bioinformatics algorithms
* Pathways and systems biology
* Protein structure prediction
* Sequence analysis


Submission deadline         December 20, 2006
Notification of acceptance  January 31, 2007
Final version submission    February 21, 2007


Paper submission must be made electronically by following the
instructions at http://www.easychair.org/ISBRA07. Submissions must be
formatted using the Springer LNCS style and must not exceed 12 pages
in length. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the
authors to register and present the paper at the symposium. The
submission website is already open.


ISBRA 2007 will be held at Georgia State University in Atlanta.
Atlanta's major attractions--Centennial Olympic Park, Underground
Atlanta, CNN Center, the World of Coca-Cola, and the Georgia Aquarium
(the largest in the world)--can all be reached by a ten-minute walk
from the GSU campus.
