CALL FOR PAPERS
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
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,
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 86°F (30°C) 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.
More information will be released opportunely.
We are looking forward to receiving your contributions.
