2nd International Conference on
Bioinformatics Research and Development



Technical University of Vienna, Austria
July 7 -- 9, 2008

Scope of the conference:
The primary focus of BIRD '08 is to provide researchers and users in the 
field of bioinformatics a forum in which to interact about new research 
directions, developments, and software/web services.
It encompasses the methods of solving biological, medical, or chemical 
problems by computer science, machine learning, or information 
processing tools.
The conceptual level of the methods range from theoretical approaches 
through the design of algorithms, models, and information processing 
systems through to the development of software packages and web services.
The program committee seeks contributions, which topics include, but are 
not limited to:
. Algebraic Biology
. Databases & Data Integration
. Drug Design
. Ontologies & Textmining
. Evolution and Phylogenetics
. Genomics
. Gene and Splice Site Recognition
. Machine learning and data analysis
. Gene Expression/regulation & Microarrays
. MicroRNA and RNAi
. Molecular Diagnostics and Treatment Support
. Molecular Dynamics
. Pathways, Networks, Systems Biology
. Phylogenetics & Molecular Evolution
. Protein & RNA Structure and Function
. Proteomics
. Sequence Analysis & Alignment
. SNPs and Haplotyping
. System Biology and Modelling

Poster Submission Details:
Posters should describe original, interesting, and solid scientific 
content that is relevant to bioinformatics and computational biology.
Authors are invited to submit condensed descriptions of ongoing work in 
English which will be displayed during the meeting.
Poster abstracts should be submitted by March 15, 2008, using the online 
poster submission form. They will be reviewed to ensure that the content 
is appropriate. We will attempt to accept as many posters as possible, 
subject to space restrictions.

Please note the following:
- Abstracts should not exceed one A4 page.
- All abstracts must be submitted by March 15, 2008.

All questions related to the BIRD '08 poster session should be directed 
to the BIRD Conference Organisation Office (office from birdconf.org)

Short papers (max. 4 pages) of all accepted posters will be published by 
the Austrian Computer Society (OCG).
The presenting author of each accepted poster must register for the 
conference prior to May 15, 2008, in order for the poster to be included 
in the program. Presenting authors are expected to attend the poster
