Algorithms and Computational Methods for
Biochemical and Evolutionary Networks
Recife, BRAZIL, December 15-18, 2004
CALL FOR PAPERS
We wish to invite you to submit a paper to the Conference "Algorithms and
Computational Methods for Biochemical and Evolutionary Networks"
(CompBioNets'04) that is being organized in Recife, Brazil, December
The conference topics will be computational biology in general, and more
specifically, but not exclusively, genetic regulation, motifs, metabolism,
protein-protein interaction, biochemical networks, protein function and
structure, genome dynamics, genome rearrangements, comparative genomics.
Submitted papers will be selected by an international Program Committee.
Accepted papers will be presented in a 25 minutes talk and will appear in
the form of a book published by "KCL publications", London, which will be
available at the Conference. The authors of the best papers will be
invited to submit their work for publication in a special issue of Journal
of Discrete Algorithms, Elsevier. A call for posters will be made later.
The Conference has its origin in a long-standing collaboration between a
Brazilian from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Recife, and a
Brazilian at large. The Conference will follow a rigorous paper selection
process and include high-ranking invited talks. At the same time, it is
hoped that it will have a nice familiar atmosphere reflecting both the
country's warm-hearted and joyful spirit and the friendship behind the
collaboration that gave birth to the Conference.
Recife, the city where the Conference will be held, is a most lovely city
located in the Northeast of Brazil. The temperature there stays around
86F (30C) all year long, but the air is kept cool by the wind coming
from the sea. In Recife itself and near the town, are some of the most
beautiful beaches in Brazil, including Porto de Galinhas Beach, a natural
pool type of beach, with beautiful colorful little fishes. Just 8 miles
from Recife is the historical town of Olinda (in portuguese, the town's
name means "Oh beautiful!"), one of the oldest cities in Brazil. The
harmonious balance between the buildings, gardens, 20 Baroque churches,
convents and numerous small "passos" (chapels) all contribute to Olinda's
