The organizers of the 9th Annual Conference on Computational Genomics
invite you to submit abstracts and tutorial proposals on COMPUTATIONAL
BIOLOGY and BIOINFORMATICS.

CG'06 is a multidisciplinary symposium that provides a forum for the
presentation and discussion of original research on computational
biology and bioinformatics. CG'06 welcomes contributions from both
academic and industrial researchers.

The major themes for CG'06 are

- High-throughput automated genome annotation
- Bioinformatics for biological networks
- Bioinformatics for infectious diseases

Other topics include (but are not limited to):

Algorithms for Problems in Computational Biology
Biological Databases, Data Management, Data Integration, and Data Mining
Comparative Genomics
Computational Proteomics
Computational Systems Biology
Gene Identification, Regulation and Expression
Molecular Evolution and Phylogenetics
Molecular Sequence Analysis, Motifs, and Pattern Matching
Protein Structure and Modeling
Statistical Analysis of Molecular Sequences
Structural and Functional Genomics

IMPORTANT DATES

Deadline for abstract/tutorial submission: August 11, 2006, midnight GMT
Notification of acceptance/rejection:	   September 15, 2006
Early registration (reduced fees):	   September 28, 2006

On-line registration deadline: October 13, 2006 (after this date, please call 540.231.5182)

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

Abstracts should not exceed 3,000 characters (including spaces) or a one-page
PDF file. Further information and instructions on how to submit abstracts
electronically are available at:

http://www.conted.vt.edu/genomics/abstracts.html

The program committee will evaluate all abstracts. Accepted
abstracts will be selected for oral or poster presentations.

TUTORIAL PROPOSAL SUBMISSION

CG'06 also invites proposals for tutorials. A tutorial is an educational,
interactive session, up to 2 hours in duration, on a theme relevant to the
conference. The authors of selected tutorials will be offered free registration
for CG'06. 

Tutorial proposals should not exceed 3,000 characters (including
spaces) or a one-page PDF file. The submission should a justification
of why the authors are qualified for the proposed theme. The
application should document content, the materials that will be
distributed to the audience (e.g. copies of slides), web-based
demonstrations, if appropriate, and the prerequisites expected from
the audience to follow the tutorial. In particular, applicants should
explain clearly and concisely why the theme of the tutorial is
relevant to CG'06.

CG ’06 SPONSORS

The Virginia Bioinformatics Institute, The Jackson Laboratory, The
Institute for Genomic Research, Virginia Tech, The National Human
Genome Institute
