CFP: IAENG International Conference on Bioinformatics ICB 2008

From: International Association of Engineers

The 2008 IAENG International Conference on Bioinformatics
19-21 March, 2008, Hong Kong
http://www.iaeng.org/IMECS2008/ICB2008.html

The conference ICB'08 is held under the International MultiConference
of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2008. The IMECS 2008 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. The last conference in 2007 has attracted
a total of over one thousand participants from over 50 countries.

All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers
will be published in the conference proceeding (ISBN:
978-988-98671-8-8). The abstracts will be indexed and available at
major academic databases. The accepted papers will also be considered
for publication in the special issues of the journal Engineering
Letters, in IAENG journals and in edited books. Revised and expanded
version of the selected papers may also be included as book chapters
in the standalone edited books under the framework of cooperation
between IAENG and Springer.

It is our target that the reviewing process and the result
notification for each submitted manuscript can be completed within one
month from its submission. The reviewing process is to ensure the
quality of the accepted papers in the WCE congress. The conferences
have enjoyed high reputation among many research colleagues ( for
example, see the http://cs.conference-ranking.net/ or http://www.conference-ranking.com/
or http://www.conference-ranking.org/cs.html ).
