                    Call For Papers and Referees

             Computational Biology and Parallel Computing
                             for the
                        BioTechnology Track
                             of the
 28th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, HICSS-28

                Maui, Hawaii - January 3-6, 1995


The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences traditionally
attracts leading researchers in the both the biotechnology and 
parallel computing disciplines.  This minitrack takes advantage 
of this unique overlap by creating a forum for papers that discuss
the use of parallel and distributed computers in the biological 
sciences.  This includes a wide range of problems, some of 
which are:

     * protein folding
     * sequence analysis
     * linkage analysis 
     * molecular modeling
     * computational chemistry 

These papers will be carefully refereed, so please let us know if
you are willing to referee -- even if you can't submit a paper.
Contact either of the organizers if you have any questions.
