3rd International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BICoB)

March 23- 25, 2011
Holiday Inn Downtown-Superdome,
New Orleans, LA, USA

Sponsored by the International Society for Computers and their Applications (ISCA)

The 3rd international conference in bioinformatics and computational biology
(BICoB) will provide an excellent venue for researchers and practitioners in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology to present and publish their research results and techniques. The BICoB conference seeks riginal and high quality papers in the fields of bioinformatics, computational biology, system
biology, medical informatics and the related disciplines. We also encourage work in progress and research results in the emerging and evolutionary computational areas. Computational techniques have already enabled unprecedented advances in modern biology and medicine. This continues to be a vibrant research area with broadening of computational techniques and
new emerging challenges. Work in the computational methods related to, or with application in, bioinformatics is also encouraged including: data mining, text mining, machine learning, modeling and simulation, pattern recognition, data visualization, biostatistics, .etc. The topics of interest include (and are not limited to):

• Genome analysis: Genome assembly, genome and
chromosome annotation, gene finding,
alternative splicing, EST analysis and
comparative genomics.

• Sequence analysis: Multiple sequence
alignment, sequence search and clustering,
function prediction, motif discovery,
functional site recognition in protein, RNA
and DNA sequences.

• Phylogenetics: Phylogeny estimation, models
of evolution, comparative biological
methods, population genetics.

• Structural Bioinformatics: Structure
matching, prediction, analysis and
comparison; methods and tools for docking;
protein design

• Analysis of high-throughput biological data:
Microarrays (nucleic acid, protein, array
CGH, genome tiling, and other arrays), EST,
SAGE, MPSS, proteomics, mass spectrometry.

• Genetics and population analysis: Linkage
analysis, association analysis, population
simulation, haplotyping, marker discovery,
genotype calling.

• Systems biology: Systems approaches to
molecular biology, multiscale modeling,
pathways,gene networks.


BICoB welcomes submissions in all areas of computing with impact on life sciences
including (but not limited to) algorithms, databases, languages, systems, and high
performance computing. For example:

- Parallel and high-performance techniques

- Unifying computational techniques

- Data and image mining techniques

- Approximation and randomized algorithms and

- Computational biology on emerging
architectures and hardware accelerators

Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission (PDF only). A full paper, including
title, author's name(s) and affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax and email of the principal author, should be submitted by November 26, 2010 at the following web site:

The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in
the Proceedings which will be a maximum of 6 pages (+2 pages with additional page
charge). ISCA double-column format will be used.
