AIMS AND SCOPE:
---------------

This workshops aims to bring together scientists from diverse fields 
within the computational and systems biology community to foster and 
advance the emerging community of gene networks. All aspects of 
different gene networks, e.g., metabolic, transcriptional regulatory, 
signaling or protein-protein interaction networks as well as 
statistical and computational methods for the inference, reconstruction 
or analysis from experimental or synthetic data are welcome. New 
methods combining data from different sources of high-throughput or 
other data are of special interest.

The workshop is part of BIOCOMP'06 (The 2006 International Conference 
on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology) which is organized in 
conjunction with WORLDCOMP'06 (The 2006 World Congress in Computer 
Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing) and all accepted 
papers will be published in the conference proceedings thereof. 
Additionally, we plan to publish extended versions of accepted papers 
in a special issue of a journal.

See http://www.bio-complexity.com/biocomp06_GeneNetworks.html
for more details.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

       Bayesian networks
       CHIP-chip experiments
       Drug discovery
       Function prediction
       Gene network modeling and inference
       Gene regulation
       Gene expression analysis
       Graphical Gaussian models
       Graphical models
       Metabolic modeling and pathways
       Microarray data
       Network comparison
       Network evolution
       Network motifs
       Protein-protein interaction
       Reverse engineering of networks
       Signaling pathways
       Simulation of gene networks
       Structural equation modeling
       Synthetic ciruits
       Transcriptional regulatory networks





DRAFT PAPER:
------------

Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (between 5 
to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12 - two columns) to 
GeneNetworks at bio-complexity.com by March 06, 2006. We accept only 
papers in PDF format. As subject line for the email use: Gene Networks 
(BIOCOMP'06).

The paper should be prepared according to IEEE style (provided at the 
workshop homepage). Latex as well as word templates are provided and 
should be used for preparation. However, the use of the latex style is 
highly recommended. The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) 
will be limited to 7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been 
previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.




IMPORTANT DATES:
