2nd Call for Papers and for Special Sessions

                         CIBB 2008
          IIASS - Vietri sul Mare, Salerno (Italy)
                     3-4 October, 2008
  Conference Website: http://cibb08.disi.unige.it/                    
The main goal of the CIBB meetings is to provide a forum open to researchers
from different disciplines to present and discuss problems concerning
computational techniques in bioinformatics, systems biology and medical
informatics with a particular focus on Neural Networks, Machine Learning, 
Fuzzy Logic, and Evolutionary Computation methods.

CIBB 2008 is jointly organized by:
 * INNS - International Neural Network Society,  SIG Bioinformatics  
 * ISCB International Society for Computational Biology
 * GNCS Gruppo Nazionale Calcolo Scientifico
 * SIREN - Italian Neural Networks Society
 * DISI - Univ. Genova (Italy)
 * DMI - Univ. Salerno (Italy)

Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2008 include, but are not limited to:
    * Sequence analysis, promoter analysis and identification of transcription
factor binding sites
    * Gene expression data analysis
    * Methods for the integration of clinical and genetic data
    * Algorithms for alternative splicing analysis
    * Methods for the functional classification of genes
    * Methods for the unsupervised analysis, validation and visualization of
structures discovered in bio-molecular data
    * Prediction of secondary and tertiary protein structures
    * Mass spectrometry data analysis in proteomics
    * Methods for comparative genomics
    * Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis
    * Mathematical modelling and simulation of biological systems
    * Heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics
    * Bio-molecular databases and data mining
    * Algorithms for pharmacogenetics
    * Bio-medical text mining and imaging
    * Methods for diagnosis and prognosis
    * Software tools for bioinformatics
Prof. Giuseppe Russo of Temple Univ, Philadelphia (PA-USA)  has confirmed
to deliver an invited talk at CIBB 2008.

The scientific program will include, besides some plenary talks, contributed
papers that will be presented in plenary oral or poster sessions.

Accepted papers will be published in the compact disk of conference
proceedings.  A selection of papers presented at CIBB 2008 will be published  
as a post conference volume of  LECTURE NOTES IN BIOINFORMATICS LNBI/LNCS 
series of Springer Verlag. Moreover, a selection of more relevant papers will 
be considered or publication in extended form in a special issue of a 
scientific journal we are planning.
