                    ECCB '2003 Satellite Event on
                  Sequence Databases and Ontologies
                           Organized by IMPG

                          September 26, 2003

                             Paris, France


As  the  number  of  biological  sequences  and their associated data is
exponentially  growing,  the need to structure and organize huge amounts
of  information is stronger than ever. Even if hundreds of databases are
already   available,  many  problems  remain  open:  how  to  represent,
structure   and   integrate   heterogeneous   data  such  as  sequences,
alignments,  gene  families, 3D structures or expression tags? What kind
of  curation systems is it possible to develop to ensure the maintenance
and  the reliability of the information stored? How to provide efficient
ways to query and retrieve relevant data subsets?

In  the  framework  of  the European Conference on Computational Biology
(2003)  we  organize  a  mini-satellite  event on sequence databases and
ontologies.  This  workshop  is  therefore  aimed  at  presenting recent
developments  in  the  field  of  sequence databases and ontologies, and
contributions  on  related  researches  are  sought.  Abstracts  may  be
submitted  as  described below. Nine selected abstracts will be selected
for  20  minutes  talks,  the  others  being  presented  as posters. All
abstracts selected for talks and poster presentations will appear in the
workshop  proceedings  which  will be printed locally and distributed to
the registered participants.



If  you wish to attend to this workshop, you only need to send an e-mail
to  perriere at  No  registration fees are required
but  you  need  to  register  before the deadline so that we can book an
appropriate place for the meeting.



Send  your  abstract  via e-mail to perriere at The
abstract  must be in the body of the e-mail, in plain ASCII text. Please
do  not  send it as an attached document generated with a word processor
or  Adobe  Acrobat. All submissions must be in english and their content
should be divided in the following sections:

  *  Title
  *  Authors list
  *  Authors affiliations and street addresses
  *  Corresponding author phone, fax number, and e-mail
  *  Text of the abstract

You will receive confirmation of receipt within a day. Your confirmation
will  go  to the e-mail address from which the abstract was sent. Please
contact us if you do not hear from us.

Deadline for abstract submission:      May 30, 2003
Notification of acceptance/rejection: June 30, 2003
