1st International Conference on Algorithms for Computational Biology, AlCoB 2014
A volume of proceedings published by Springer in the LNBI series will be available by the time of the conference.
A special issue of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB, 2012 impact factor: 1.616) will be later published containing peer-reviewed extended versions of some of the papers contributed to the conference. Submissions to it will be by invitation.
AlCoB aims at promoting and displaying excellent research using string and graph algorithms and combinatorial optimization to deal with problems in biological sequence analysis, genome rearrangement, evolutionary trees, and structure prediction.
The conference will address several of the current challenges in computational biology by investigating algorithms aimed at:
Particular focus will be put on methodology and significant room will be reserved to young scholars at the beginning of their career.
Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:
AlCoB 2014 will consist of
Authors are invited to submit non-anonymized papers in English presenting original and unpublished research.
