                   Call for Papers: IEEE CIBCB 2009
         2009 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in
               Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
                  March 30-April 2, Nashville, TN, USA

This symposium will bring together top researchers, practitioners,
and students from around the world to discuss the latest advances in
the field of Computational Intelligence and its application to real world
problems in biology. Computational Intelligence includes artificial
neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary algorithms, and other emerging
techniques. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: gene
expression array analysis, structure prediction and folding, drug
design, molecular sequence alignment and analysis, metabolic
pathway analysis, medical imaging and pattern recognition, analysis
of large biological data sets, and a variety of other topics. The use of
computational intelligence must play a substantial role in submitted
papers. Submissions will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will
be published in the conference proceedings.

Paper Submission: Prospective authors are invited to submit
papers of no more than eight (8) pages including results, figures and
references; submission details can be found on the symposium web
site: www.ieee-ssci.org. Authors are expected to present their paper at
the symposium. IEEE CIBCB 2009 will be held in conjunction with the IEEE
Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence 2009 (IEEE SSCI 2009).
Over 20 such conferences will be co-located at this event.

Special Sessions and Tutorials: It is anticipated that the
symposium will have a number of special sessions and tutorials.
Consult the SSCI symposium web site for instructions on proposing a
special session or tutorial.  Papers for special sessions must have
significant computational intelligence content.

Location: Nashville, Tennessee is well known for its cultural events
and moderate climate. It is considered a global music center. Nashville
is the capital of Tennessee and located on the beautiful Cumberland


Student Travel Grants: Several student travel grants may be available shortly.

Please continue to monitor the SSCI website for additional details.
