CFP: IAENG International Conference on Bioinformatics ICB 2009

From: International Association of Engineers

The 2009 IAENG International Conference on Bioinformatics
18-20 March, 2009, Hong Kong

The conference ICB'09 is held under the International MultiConference
of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2009. The IMECS 2009 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 2008 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:
978-988-17012-2-0). 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. For reference, the following IAENG post
conference edited books, Trends in Intelligent Systems and Computer
Engineering, Advances in Communication Systems and Electrical
Engineering, and Advances in Industrial Engineering and Operations
Research, have been published by Springer.
