The first IEEE Computer Society's Bioinformatics conference has the goal of communicating cutting edge computational biology research to the largest computer scientist audience in the world.

The conference's goal is to present cutting edge computational biology research to the largest group of computer scientists in the world. While such research has an interdisciplinary character, CSB2002 emphasizes the computational aspects of bioinformatics research. Computer science papers must show biological relevance, and biology papers must stress the computational contribution to the results.

Accepted papers will be scheduled for 30-minute podium presentations, and will be published in the conference proceedings. Ten accepted papers selected by the Program Committee will be published in the Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. Topics of interest include:

  • Machine learning

  • String & Graph Algorithms

  • Data Mining

  • Robotics

  • Pattern Recognition

  • Stochastic Modeling

  • Data Visualization

  • Genomics and Proteomics

  • Evolution and Phylogenetics

  • Gene Expression Pathways

  • Regulatory Networks

  • Molecular Structures & Interactions

  • Comparative Genomics

  • Genotyping and SNP Discovery

Keynote Speakers are Leroy Hood, M.D., Ph.D.,Russ B. Altman, M.D., Ph.D., and Bernhard O. Palsson, Ph.D.

The Best Paper, selected by the Program Committee and sponsored by Hewlett-Packard Company, will be announced at the awards ceremony on August 16th at 5:00 PM. The first author will receive an HP Laptop computer.
