*CALL FOR POSTERS*
*1st International Conference*
*Bioinformatics Research and Development*
* B I R D '07***
*March 12-14, 2007*
Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA)
*Scope of the conference:*
The primary focus of BIRD '07 is to provide researchers and users in the
field of bioinformatics a forum in which to interact about new research
directions, developments, and software/web services.
It encompasses the methods of solving biological, medical, or chemical
problems by computer science, machine learning, or information
The conceptual level of the methods range from theoretical approaches
through the design of algorithms, models, and information processing
systems through to the development of software packages and web services.
The program committee seeks contributions, which topics include, but are
not limited to:
* Algebraic Biology
* Databases & Data Integration
* Drug Design
* Ontologies & Textmining
* Evolution and Phylogenetics
* Gene and Splice Site Recognition
* Machine Learning and Data Analysis
* Gene Expression/Regulation & Microarrays
* MicroRNA and RNAi
* Molecular Diagnostics and Treatment Support
* Molecular Dynamics
* Pathways, Networks, Systems Biology
* Phylogenetics & Molecular Evolution
* Protein & RNA Structure and Function
* Sequence Analysis & Alignment
* SNPs and Haplotyping
* Systems Biology and Modelling

*Paper and Poster Submission Details:
*Authors are invited to submit original research contributions or
experience reports in English.
Paper registration and electronic submission will start in August 2006.
Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.
Please submit your paper as PDF file only. Paper submissions in LNCS format
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) would be highly
In order to avoid problems in viewing and printing your paper, please,
only use embedded fonts. Please, do not use language extensions
(e.g., Chinese language support) neither in texts nor in figures.
The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will
appear in the Proceedings.
Papers should not exceed 15 pages in LNCS format.
Any submission that exceeds length limits or deviates from formatting
requirements may be rejected without review.
Please submit an extended abstract or short paper version of your poster
as PDF file only.
