Symposium web site:
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)
Registration is required to attend the symposium. On line registration
is opened while seats are available.
Thank you for your time
