Dear All,
I hope you may be interested to submit a idea paper to this one.
Given the Springer publication and the ample grants available
to students, this may be a good opportunity for an Graduate
Student to submit to. I had some stimulating interactions with
people from Unilever Research and pharma companies increasingly
interested in basic bio-medical research.
best wishes,
Aldo

CALL FOR PAPERS
CompLife '07   ( http://www.complife.org/)

Following the success of the 1st and 2nd International Symposia on
Computational Life Science in Konstanz and Cambridge
the 3rd International Symposium on Computational Life Science
shall be held in Utrecht, The Netherlands, on October 4 - 6, 2007


Topics of Interest

The focus of the symposium is on computational methods for the
modeling, analysis and exploration of all aspects of life sciences,
ranging from effects on the molecular level to complex interactions
networks as found in the brain.

Of prime importance for this truly interdisciplinary event will be the
integration of the disciplines Computer Science, Biology, and
Physics/Chemistry. The program will consist of contributed
presentations regarding application of computational aspects as
well as new theoretical developments.

Submissions will be reviewed by representatives of all fields to
make sure that not only the algorithmic aspects are suited for
publication but the application to life/medical science is promising as
well.

Submissions are sought in the following areas:

# Computational Neuroscience
# Molecular/Cellular simulation
# Computational proteomics
# Molecular informatics
# Modelling of cell interactions
# Biological networks / Metabolism
# Application of Machine Learning to Biological Problems

The online submission system is open now. The link and further
information regarding the submission is available on the conference
web site.


Student Grants

A limited number of student grants are available for CompLife 2007:
First priority will be given to full-time students who are first
authors of papers and present their paper at the conference. Grants
are handed out at the conference and will be in the amount of a
maximum of €500, covering registration, travel, and accommodation.

When submitting a paper, students should indicate that they plan to
apply for a student grant.
