The following is a call for papers for the 

German Conference on Computer Science and Biology 

If you need an earlier decision on your submitted paper,
so you can make your plans, please let us know. We could
provide an early decision, although the partition of
accepted abstracts into oral presentation and posters
will take place only after June 15.
If you need early acceptance, please submit your abstract by April 20.

                            FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

                       COMPUTER SCIENCE AND BIOLOGY

                           German Conference on

                   B I O I N F O R M A T I C S  (GCB`96)

                Leipzig, September 30th - October 2nd, 1996

The German Conference on Bioinformatics is organized on behalf of
FG 4.0.2 Informatik in den Biowissenschaften of the German Society
of Computer Science (GI) in cooperation with the AG of Computereinsatz
in den Biowissenschaften of the German Society of Chemical Technique
and Biotechnology (DECHEMA) and the AG Mathematische Modelle in Biologie
und Medizin of the German Society of Medical Informatics, Statistics and
Epidemiology (GMDS).
The conference will take place at the University of Leipzig, 
September 30th - October 2nd, 1996, and is intended to bring together
scientists who are addressing problems in biosciences and medicine using
advanced computational methods including data modeling, simulation,
artificial intelligence, computer graphics (visualization), robotics,
combinatorial and stochastic optimization. The conference is concerned
with all aspects combining computer science and biosciences. Topics of 
particular interest include, but are not limited to:

                  - Genome Analysis
                  - Models of Gene Regulation
                  - Formal Languages and DNA
                  - Molecular Docking and Recognition
                  - Molecular Modeling and Protein Design
                  - Models of Pattern and Structure Formation
                  - Models in Cell Biology
                  - Models of Dynamic Biological Systems
                  - Self-Organization and Complex Systems
                  - Metabolic Engineering
                  - Metabolic Pathways
                  - High Performance Computing
                  - Biological Database Technology
                  - Visualization and Animation of Biological Processes
                  - Artificial Intelligence and Complex Systems
                  - Evolutionary Computing
                  - DNA Computing
                  - Biological Paradigms in Computer Science

Extended abstracts of all accepted presentations including posters and
computerdemos will be published in the conference abstract book which will
be distributed to all participants. It is planned that full length papers 
will be invited by the PC for publication by Springer-Verlag "Lecture Notes
of Computer Science" after the conference.

Submission Procedures
The closing date for receiving papers (extended abstracts of 3 pages),
posters and computer demos (abstracts of 1 page) is May 1, 1996.  The 
conference offers the possibility for the presentation of tutorials 
(abstracts of 1 page). The decision on acceptance for presentation will
be communicated by June 15, 1996.
