                      Announcement and Call for Papers

  Methods to Interpret and Collect Information Across Molecular Biological
                                 Databanks

1. Track topics

The principle focus of the PSB-97 database session will be on computer and
algorithmic methods that result in more intelligent and accessible molecular
biological databases. Researchers working in this area are encouraged to
submit manuscripts. Major topics include:

   * data classification, interpretation, and analysis
   * database synthesis and integration for optimal use of information
   * interconnection of existing databases distributed over many computer
     sites
   * increasing awareness of available data

Since the field is broad, a preference will be given to topics bearing on
molecular sequence, structure and function; however, novel contributions
commensurate with the aforementioned topics will be seriously considered.

Proposals for tutorials and software tool demonstration are welcome.

4. Submittals

We are soliciting high quality papers and abstracts. PSB '97 will publish
peer-reviewed full papers in an archival proceedings. Each paper must be
accompanied by a cover letter stating that it contains original unpublished
results not currently under consideration elsewhere and that all co-authors
concur with its contents. The best peer-reviewed papers will be selected for
oral presentation (30 minutes) to the full assembled Conference. Six (6)
copies of all full papers must be submitted to the central PSB address:

PSB-97
c/o Section on Medical Informatics
Stanford University Medical School, MSOB X215
Stanford, CA 94305-5479 USA

Authors who do not wish to submit a full paper are welcome to submit two
page abstracts which will be distributed at the meeting separately from the
archival Proceedings. All participants are welcome to display posters and
give live computer demonstrations.

Paper Format: Submitted papers may be no longer than 12 pages single spaced,
and *must* use our supplied format. Format information can be found at
ftp://camis.stanford.edu/pub/altman/psb. Contact Russ Altman
(altman at camis.stanford.edu) for additional information.
