Subject: Gene therapy conference
     First announcement and call for abstracts
     A meeting dedicated to gene therapy of cancer, one of the most exciting
     developments in the management of malignant disease.  The conference will
     focus on the latest developments in cancer gene therapy with plenary
     sessions on gene delivery systems, including tissue specific and
     targetable vectors; tumour immunology, including tumour cell antigens,
     antigen presentation, immune modulators, tolerance, and immune
     suppression;  therapeutic strategies and clinical applications, including
     the use of immune modulators, allo-antigens, antigen-specific procedures,
     adoptive immunotherapy, pro-drug activation, anti-sense strategies,
     ribozymes, and gene replacement.
     Numbers limited - early registration is recommended
     Deadline for the submission of Abstracts : 14 August 1995.  A limited
     number of bursaries may be available for young clinicians and scientists
     presenting original work.  To request a bursary, you should forward your
     full CV and details of the work you wish to present.

Subject: Call for Papers (Computational Biology)
Call for papers (computational biology):
           Announcing a Special Issue on
          Computational Molecular Biology
Guest Editors: Sorin Istrail, Pavel Pevzner, Ron Shamir
Submission Deadline: May 31, 1995
Manuscripts are solicited for a special issue of
the development of new combinatorial and algorithmic
techniques in computational molecular biology.
With this announcement "Discrete Applied Mathematics"
starts a series of special issues devoted to
computational biology. This series will publish papers
on the mathematical and algorithmic foundations of
the inherently discrete aspects of computational biology.
The traditional partnership of mathematics and physics
has advanced and enriched both disciplines. In a similar
partnership, mathematics and algorithms are becoming
crucial tools in the rapid advancement of molecular biology.
At the same time, the computational challenges of these
biological disciplines raise exciting new problems in
discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science.
To paraphrase Stan Ulam, those challenges reflect
"not only what mathematics can do for biology but what
biology can do for mathematics."
The following is a (nonexhaustive) list of possible
topics of interest for the special issue:
        - DNA mapping
        - DNA sequencing
        - DNA/protein sequence comparison
        - molecular evolution
        - RNA/protein structure
        - gene/motif recognition
Seven (7) copies of complete manuscripts should be sent to
any of the Guest Editors indicated below by May 31, 1995.
We expect the Special Issue to appear in the Fall 1996.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the normal
submission requirements of Discrete Applied Mathematics,
as described in each issue of the journal.  The Guest Editors
will make every possible effort to assure the timely completion
of a thorough refereeing process.
