        *****************  CALL FOR PAPERS   *****************

The Third International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular
Biology (ISMB-95) will take place at Robinson College, Cambridge, England
during July 16-19th, 1995.

The ISMB conference is intended to bring together scientists who are
addressing problems in molecular biology using advanced computational
methods including data modelling, machine learning, artificial
intelligence, cognitive science, robotics, combinatorial/stochastic
optimization, adaptive computing, string & graph algorithms, linguistic
methods and parallel computer technologies.  The scope extends to any
computational method or system supporting a biological task that is
algorithmically, cognitively or conceptually challenging, involves a
synthesis of heterogeneous information, or in some other way exhibits the
emergent properties of an "intelligent system."  In general these methods
will have been validated on real data sets or have clear practical

The four-day conference will feature introductory and advanced tutorials
(on July 16th), and presentations of original refereed papers, posters and
invited talks (on July 17th-19th).

Paper submissions will be accepted for review with the understanding that
the same work has not been published elsewhere.  Papers should be
single-spaced, 12 point type, 12 pages maximum including title, abstract,
figures, tables, and bibliography with titles.  The first page should
include the full postal address, electronic mailing address, telephone and
FAX number of each author.  Also, please list five to ten keywords
describing the methods, concepts and problems discussed in the paper.
State whether you wish the paper to be considered for oral presentation
only, poster presentation only or for either presentation format.  


A. Six printed copies of each paper should be submitted to the following

   c/o Dr. Christopher Rawlings,
   Biomedical Informatics Unit,

   London, WC2A 3PX


B. Send email to ismb95 at including the following information:


   For other authors  : NAME, AFFILIATION, E-MAIL ADDRESS

   *or other author responsible for correspondence
