Call For Papers


As the genome project progresses, the size of sequence data is expected
to 
increase dramatically, far exceeding current analysis capabilities.
Rapid and 
efficient analysis of this data will only be possible with significant
high-
performance computing resources.  The goal of this section is to present
research 
results in Computer Science and Computer Engineering that enable the use
of 
high performance computers to advance both BioInformatics and
Computational 
Biology.  We are interested in both advances in algorithms and problem 
formulations and implementation of computational tools. Topics of 
interest 
include:

- Computational Tools to Compare Genomic Sequences
- Construction, Maintenance and Operation of Genomic Databases
- Multiple Sequence Alignment
- Parallel Algorithms for sequence and structure alignment
- Molecular Dynamics
- Protein Folding Simulation using Parallel Computers
- Prediction of Protein Structures


Extended abstracts or paper drafts should be sent according the
following format:

1. Major theme of the paper, according to the major themes given above.
2. Paper title.
3. Extended abstract of 500 to 1500 words and/or paper drafts of 2000 to
5000 
words, in English.
4. Author or co-authors with names, addresses, telephone number, fax
number 
and e-mail address.

Extended abstracts or paper drafts should be sent via Internet, as
attachments to 
e-mails addressed to martins at capsl.udel.edu.
