PRIB 2008 is aimed at bringing together top researchers, practitioners, and students from around the world to discuss the applications of pattern recognition methods in the field of bioinformatics to solve problems in life sciences. Pattern recognition techniques of interest include: statistical, syntactic, and structural approaches, Bayesian, hidden Markov and graphical models, neural networks, fuzzy and genetic algorithms, data mining, and their hybrids. 

Short papers are solicited for poster presentation at PRIB 2008. Short papers in areas of (but not limited to) bio-sequence analysis, gene and protein expression analysis, structure prediction, protein folding, docking, metabolic pathway analysis and regulatory networks, system biology, drug design, and bioimaging, are solicited for presentation at the conference. A few selected papers may also be considered for oral presentation. The short papers will be published in the Supplementary Proceedings of the PRIB 2008 conference. The papers should follow the IEEE two-column format and be limited to four pages. If you need more pages, you should email the general chair in this regard. Submission of papers will be electronic and through the conference website. The details and the template for short paper preparation as well as the latest information on PRIB 2008 conference are available at:
www.infotech.monash.edu.au/prib08

Apart from oral and poster paper presentation, we are also inviting bioinformatics 'gurus' to come forth and be the keynote speakers.
