General Information
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

ACM-BCB is the first ACM conference in the areas of bioinformatics, computational biology, 
and biomedical researches. The conference is pleased to announce that the conference has 
set up three awards: the best paper award, the best student paper award, and the best 
poster award. The conference will also support 10 student travel grants
(see the conference website for more details). 


We invite you to submit papers with unpublished, original research describing recent advances
on all aspects of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. All papers will undergo peer
review by the conference program committee; accepted papers will be published in the conference
proceedings (in CD) and in the ACM Digital Library. Authors of selected papers will be
invited to extend their papers for submission to several journals.

Papers should not exceed 10 pages in ACM template on 8.5 x 11 inch paper 
(see ACM templates <http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates> at 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). Papers should be submitted via 
the link (https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/BCB2010/).

We also invite you to submit posters focusing on problems and new challenges of Bioinformatics 
and Computational Biology. Submit your posters (limited to 3 pages of  ACM template) to 
poster co-chair: Tony Hu (xh29 from drexel.edu).  
Accepted posters will be published in the conference proceedings.


The topics of relevance for the conference papers include but are not limited to the following:

· Assembly algorithms for the next generation sequencing

· Genome annotations via mass spectrometry

· Gene discovery and protein function prediction

· Functional genomics algorithms for high throughput data generation methods

· DNA and protein motif discovery

· Models of gene expression regulation at RNA level

· Algorithms for comparative and evolutionary genomics

· Molecular evolution and phylogeny reconstruction

· Multiple genome alignment

· Computational genomics for plant and animal genomes

· Engineering of bioinformatic databases

· Models of gene expression networks

· Computational proteomics and methabolomics

· Prediction of protein-protein interactions
