CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Workshop on Computational Advances 
for Next Generation Sequencing (CANGS 2011) 
in conjunction with ICCABS 2011

Feb. 4, 2011, Holiday Inn - in the Walt Disney World Resort, 
Orlando, Florida

Workshop Organizers:
	Ion Mandoiu , University of Connecticut,  ion from engr.uconn.edu
	Alex Zelikovsky, Georgia State University, alexz from cs.gsu.edu	

Massively parallel DNA and RNA sequencing have become widely 
available, reducing the cost by several orders of magnitude and 
placing the capacity to generate gigabases to terabases of 
sequence data into the hands of individual investigators. These 
next-generation technologies have the potential to dramatically 
accelerate biological and biomedical research by enabling the 
comprehensive analysis of genomes and transcriptomes to become 
inexpensive, routine and widespread. The exploding volume of data 
has spurred the development of novel algorithmic approaches for 
primary analyses of sequence data in such areas as error 
correction, de novo genome assembly, novel transcript discovery, 
virus quasispecies assembly, etc. This workshop will bring 
together specialists to discuss the various mathematical and 
computational challenges presented by next-generation sequencing 
technologies. 
This meeting is by invitation only. If you would like to inquire 
about the possibility of being invited, please contact the 
organizers by January 10, 2011.

Workshop Registration Fees:
	IEEE Members: $300
