CALL FOR POSTERS
We invite the submission of posters to the Conference "Algorithms and
Computational Methods for Biochemical and Evolutionary Networks"
(CompBioNets'04) that is being organized in Recife, Brazil, December
The Conference topics will be computational biology in general, and
more specifically, but not exclusively, genetic regulation, motifs,
metabolism, protein-protein interaction, biochemical networks, protein
function and structure, genome dynamics, genome rearrangements,
CompBioNets has its origin in a long-standing collaboration between a
Brazilian from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Recife, and a
Brazilian at large. It is hoped that it will have a nice familiar
atmosphere reflecting both the country's warm-hearted and joyful
spirit and the friendship behind the collaboration that gave birth to
the Conference. As a consequence, CompBioNets will contain
contributed talks of selected papers and posters, but also a number of
invited talks that is more traditional of working meetings. We thus
hope that this will foster lively discussions of novel ideas in all of
the main Conference's topics.
In the same vein, the best submitted posters will be invited for a
short 10 minutes presentation, besides appearing in the local
proceedings that will be available at the Conference. We strongly
encourage contributions from all scientific communities involved in
the topics of CompBioNets. We are particularly interested in
contributions from the biological perspective.
Recife, where CompBioNets will be held, is a most lovely city located
in the Northeast of Brazil. The temperature there stays around 30
degrees Celsius all year long, but the air is kept cool by the wind
coming from the sea. In Recife itself and near the town, are some of
the most beautiful beaches in Brazil, including Porto de Galinhas
Beach, a natural pool type of beach, with beautiful colorful little
fishes. Just 8 miles from Recife is the historical town of Olinda (in
portuguese, the town's name means "Oh beautiful!"), one of the oldest
cities in Brazil. The harmonious balance between the buildings,
gardens, 20 Baroque churches, convents and numerous small "passos"
(chapels) all contribute to Olinda's particular charm.
Deadline for poster submission: September 28, 2004.Additional information:
We are looking forward to receiving your contributions.
