CSB 2003

Founded in 1946, the IEEE Computer Society has over 100,000 members and is the world's leading organization of computer professionals. With nearly a third of the members living and working outside the United States, the Computer Society and its new section, Bioinformatics, fosters international communication, cooperation, and information exchange.

Computer Society Bioinformatics (CSB) is dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of living systems through computation and application of computer and information processing technology. CSB organizes an annual international conference held at Stanford University, California, USA in mid August and sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society together with invited corporate supporters. The conference is totally dedicated to scientific exchange and networking for leading researchers at the cutting edge of progress in bioinformatics and thus has no commercial booths. Because of the generosity of the corporate supporters, CSB is able to providing the lowest registration fees of any 4 day conference in this field.

The Program in a nutshell: 4 Days: 8 tutorials, 30 scientific presentations, 100 research posters, two special evening events. Keynote and Invited speakers will be announced as we receive confirmations. The registration package includes all meals served in the pastoral setting of Stanford University (to the left of the building shown above) and a copy of the Proceedings in book and CD formats. CSB2003 will have a limit of 800 attendees.

Call for Papers

You are invited to submit a paper to the 2003 IEEE Computer Society Bioinformatics Conference (CSB2003). The conference’s goal is to facilitate collaboration between computer scientists and biologists by presenting cutting edge computational biology research findings. While such research has an interdisciplinary character, CSB2003 emphasizes the computational aspects of bioinformatics research. Computer science papers must show biological relevance, and biology papers must stress the computational aspects of the results. CSB2003 will accept 27 papers for podium presentation, and these will be published in the IEEE conference proceedings. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): Machine learning Data Mining Robotics Data Visualization Regulatory Networks Comparative Genomics Pattern Recognition String and Graph Algorithms Genome to Life Stochastic Modeling Genomics and Proteomics Gene Expression Pathways Evolution and Phylogenetics Molecular Structures and Interactions Papers are limited to 12 pages, single spaced, in 12 point type, including title, abstract (250 words or less), figures, tables, text, and bibliography. The first page should give keywords, authors’ postal and electronic mailing addresses. Submit papers electronically to in either postscript or PDF format. A select subset of accepted papers will be invited to also publish in the Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The Best Paper will be selected by the Program Committee and announced at the awards ceremony. Submissions must be received no later than April 1, 2003. Authors will be notified of their submission's status by May 19, 2003, and final corrected versions must be received by June 14, 2003.
