It is considered unethical to publish the same material in two
independent journals. Yet, we see the organizers of the:

             "THIRD ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
                   COMPUTATIONAL MOLECULAR BIOLOGY

                           (RECOMB'99)

                        April 11-14, 1999
                           Lyon, France"

REQUESTING

"Papers reporting on original research (both theoretical and
experimental) in all areas of computational molecular biology are
sought, including surveys of important recent results/directions.

Typical but not exclusive topics of interest include:

- Genomics,
- Molecular sequence analysis,
- Recognition of genes and regulatory elements,
- Molecular evolution,
- Protein structure,
- Combinatorial libraries and drug design.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION:
Authors are requested to send 10 copies (preferably two sided copies)
of a detailed extended abstract (5-10 pages) to:

allowed.

CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS:
The extended abstracts for the Conference will be published by ACM
Press and will be available at the Conference. A selection of the
accepted extended abstracts in their final journal versions will be
invited to appear in a special issue of the Journal of Computational
Biology devoted to RECOMB 99."
