Algorithms and Computational Methods for Biochemical and Evolutionary Networks
December 15-18, 2004     Recife, BRAZIL


We wish to invite you to submit a paper to the Conference "Algorithms and Computational Methods for Biochemical and Evolutionary Networks" (CompBioNets'04) that is being organized in Recife, Brazil, December 15-18, 2004.

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, comparative genomics.

Submitted papers will be selected by an international Program Committee. Accepted papers will be presented in a 25 minutes talk and will appear in the form of a book published by "KCL publications", London, which will be available at the Conference. The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit their work for publication in a special issue of Journal of Discrete Algorithms, Elsevier. A call for posters will be made later.

The Conference has its origin in a long-standing collaboration between a Brazilian from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Recife, and a Brazilian at large. The Conference will follow a rigorous paper selection process and include high-ranking invited talks. At the same time, 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.

Recife, the city where the Conference will be held, is a most lovely city located in the Northeast of Brazil. The temperature there stays around 86F (30C) 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.
