                         PSB 2001 for Participation


The sixth Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB), will be held January 3-7,
2001 in Honolulu, Hawaii.  PSB provides a forum for the presentation of work
in databases, algorithms, interfaces, visualization, modeling and other
computational methods, as applied to biological problems, with emphasis on
applications in data-rich areas of molecular biology.  PSB intends to
attract a balanced combination of computer scientists and biologists,
presenting significant original research, demonstrating computer systems,
and facilitating formal and informal discussions on topics of importance to
computational biology.

>>>> PSB 2001 Sessions

To provide focus for the very broad area of biological computing, PSB is
organized into a series of specific sessions.  Each session involves both
formal research presentations and open discussion groups.  The 2001 PSB
sessions are:

 * Human Genome Variation and Clinical Genotypics
 * Genome, Pathway and Interaction Bioinformatics
 * NLP and IE for Biology
 * High Performance Computing for Computational Biology
 * Phylogenetics in the Post-Genomic Era
 * Integrated Study of Protein Evolution
 * Disorder in Protein Function
 * DNA Structure, Interactions, and Expression
 * Bioethics and Fiction Science

>>>> Papers, Abstracts and Demonstrations

The core of the conference consists of rigorously peer-reviewed full-length
papers reporting on original work.  Accepted papers will be published in a
hard-bound archival proceedings, and the best of these will be presented
orally to the entire conference.  Workstations and internet connections will
be available for demonstrations.  Open submissions of posters and abstracts
are also encouraged.  See the web site for
information about submission requirements.
