You are invited to submit a paper to the Second Annual Bioinformatics Symposium 2005. The symposium's goal is to build a bridge among the researchers working in industries,
academic and research institutions. This forum will provide an opportunity to learn and to understand the ongoing research activities that may help spark some new collaboration for future research and funding opportunities in this area. Those who are working in the area of molecular biology, computer science, and statistics are encouraged to participate in the symposium to acquaint with the current research agenda of Bioinformatics and to be informed about potential funding sources.
Accepted papers will be scheduled for a short podium presentations, and will be published in the conference proceedings. Please submit a complete paper or an extended abstract up to 5 pages. Computer science papers must show biological relevance, and biology papers must stress the computational contribution to the results.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Sequence alignment
Gene discovery
Protein structure prediction
Protein to protein interaction
RNA structure prediction
Evolutionary phylogenetic tree
Application of machine learning to Bioinformatics
Molecular structure and interaction
Micro-array analysis
Promoter detection algorithms
Gene expression

Keynote Speakers
We are making arrangements to bring renowned researchers and scientists from academic and research institutions and from funding agencies. The keynote speakers will include:

Professor Philip E. Bourne
Professor of Pharmacology,
UCSD Co-Director Protein Data Bank,
SDSC Editor-in-Chief PLoS Computational Biology

Dr. Fern Y. Hunt
Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
