Computational techniques have already enabled unprecedented advances in
modern 
biology and medicine. This continues to be a vibrant research area with
broadening of 
computational techniques and new emerging challenges. The Bioinformatics
and 
Computational Biology (BICoB) conference was established by the ISCA to
promote 
the advancement of computing techniques and their application to life
sciences. T

he BICoB conference will feature original unpublished research in all
areas of 
bio-informatics and computational biology, and covering the entire
spectrum of 
underlying computational techniques/models/paradigms. The topics of
interest include 
(and are not limited to): 

*      Genome analysis: Genome assembly, genome and chromosome
annotation, 
       gene finding, alternative splicing, EST analysis and comparative
genomics. 
 
*      Sequence analysis: Multiple sequence alignment, sequence search
and clustering,  
       function prediction, motif discovery, functional site recognition
in protein, RNA and 
       DNA sequences. 
 
*      Phylogenetics: Phylogeny estimation, models of evolution,
comparative biological 
       methods, population genetics. 

*      Structural Bioinformatics: Structure matching, prediction,
analysis and comparison; 
        methods and tools for docking; protein design 
 
*      Analysis of high-throughput biological data: Microarrays (nucleic
acid, protein, 
       array CGH, genome tiling, and other arrays), EST, SAGE, MPSS,
proteomics, mass 
       spectrometry. 
 
*      Genetics and population analysis: Linkage analysis, association
analysis, population 
       simulation, haplotyping, marker discovery, genotype calling. 
 
*      Systems biology: Systems approaches to molecular biology,
multiscale modeling, 
       pathways,gene networks. 


                                   SUBMISSION PROCEDURES 

BICoB welcomes submissions in all areas of computing with impact on life
sciences 
including (but not limited to) algorithms, databases, languages,
systems, and high 
performance computing. For example: 

- Parallel and high-performance techniques

- Unifying computational techniques 

- Data and image mining techniques 

- Approximation and randomized algorithms and systems 

- Computational biology on emerging architectures and hardware
accelerators 

Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission (PDF only). A full
paper, including 
title, author's name(s) and affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax
and email of the 
principal author, should be submitted by October 23, 2009 at the
following web site: 

https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/BICOB2010/

The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it
will appear in 
the Proceedings which will be a maximum of 6 pages (+2 pages with
additional page 
charge). ISCA double-column format will be used. 

See:See http://www.isca-hq.org/sample-isca-manuscript-format.pdf . 

If you encounter any difficulties during submission or if you require
further information, 
please contact: isca from ipass.net. 

Authors wishing to have their papers reviewed for possible publication
in the ISCA 
Journal of Computers and Applications should send by postal mail or
email expanded 
versions of their papers directly to the Editor, Prof. David Jeff
Jackson.
