International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications
May 6-9, 2007, Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia

The International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications 
(ISBRA) provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results among 
researchers, developers, and practitioners working on all aspects of 
bioinformatics and computational biology and their applications. ISBRA 
is the successor of the International Workshop on Bioinformatics 
Research and Applications (IWBRA), held on May 22-25, 2005 in Atlanta, 
GA and on May 28-31, 2006 in Reading, UK in conjunction with the 
International Conference on Computational Science. The two editions of 
IWBRA have enjoyed a great success, with special issues of Springer LNCS 
Transactions on Computational Systems Biology 
and IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics 
being devoted to full versions of selected papers. The proceedings of 
ISBRA 2007 will be published in the Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in 
series, and it is anticipated that a special issue of a major 
bioinformatics journal will be devoted to expanded versions of the best 
symposium papers.

Authors are invited to submit papers that demonstrate original 
unpublished research in all areas of bioinformatics, including the 
development of experimental or commercial systems. Surveys of important 
recent results and directions are also welcome. Topics of interest 
include but are not limited to:
 * Biomedical image processing
 * Bio-ontology and data mining
 * Computational genetics
 * Comparative genomics
 * Databases and data integration
 * Gene expression and microarrays
 * Gene identification and annotation
 * Immunoinformatics
 * Molecular evolution and phylogeny
 * Molecular modeling and simulation
 * Parallel bioinformatics algorithms
 * Pathways and systems biology
 * Protein structure prediction
 * Sequence analysis

Paper submission must be made electronically by following the 
instructions at http://www.easychair.org/ISBRA07. Submissions must be 
formatted using the Springer LNCS style and must not exceed 12 pages in 
length. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the 
authors to register and present the paper at the symposium. The 
submission website is already open.
