SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by
uploading them to http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/ .
Submissions must be received by Feb. 25, 2009 and they must be in
either MS doc or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages - single space,
font size of 10 to 12). All reasonable typesetting formats are
acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to
follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their papers for
publication.)

The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited
to 7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously
published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The
first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper,
name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each
author.
The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
content of the paper. Finally, the name of the conference
(BIOCOMP)
must be mentioned on the first page.

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity,
impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two experts
in the field who are independent of the conference program
committee.
The referees' evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of
the program committee who will recommend a decision to the co-
chairs.
The co-chairs will make the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-
Ready
papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.


IMPORTANT DATES:

Feb. 25, 2009: Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages)
March 25, 2009: Notification of acceptance
April 25, 2009: Camera-Ready papers and Registration due
July 13-16, 2009: The 2009 International Conference on
Bioinformatics
and Computational Biology (BIOCOMP'09)

MEMBERS OF PROGRAM AND ORGANIZING COMMITTEES:

The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy
of Science (chapters: bioinformatics, computational biology;
supercomputing; scientific computing; AI; imaging science;
databases; simulation; software engineering; embedded systems;
internet and web technologies; communications; and computer
security.)
The Program Committee for BIOCOMP is currently being formed. Those
interested in joining the Program Committee should email Prof.
Arabnia
(hra@cs.uga.edu) the following information: Name, affiliation
and position, complete mailing address, email address, a short
biography together with research interests and the name of the
conference (BIOCOMP) offering to help with.
Many who have already joined the committees of individual tracks
are renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and
practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of research
laboratories, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of
departments, deans and provosts.

PURPOSE / HISTORY:

BIOCOMP'09 is one of the premier research conferences in
bioinformatics
and computational biology. It is being held jointly (same location
and dates) with a number of other research conferences
(WORLDCOMP'09).
WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in
computer
science, computer engineering and applied computing.

The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research
topics into a coordinated research meeting held in a common place
at
a common time. The main goal is to provide a forum for exchange of
ideas in a number of research areas that interact. The model used
facilitates communication among researchers from all over the world
in different fields of bioinformatics, computational biology,
computer
science, computer engineering and applied computing. Both inward
research and outward research will be covered during BIOCOMP'09.

BIOCOMP'09 and WORLDCOMP'09 will be composed of research
presentations,
keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel
discussions,
and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote and/or tutorial
speakers included: Prof. David A. Patterson (U. of California,
Berkeley); Prof. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H.
Holland
(U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. Brian D. Athey (U. of Michigan,
Ann Arbor), Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado State U.); Prof. Barry
Vercoe
(MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of California, Berkeley);
Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys (OLPC + developer of X
Window); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica, Inc.); and
many other distinguished speakers.

LOCATION OF CONFERENCES:

The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas,
Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). This is
a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000
rooms. It is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle
service to and from the airport. This hotel has many recreational
attractions, including: waterfalls, spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy
River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows,
a number of restaurants, ... The negotiated room rate for
conference attendees is very reasonable. The hotel is within
walking distance from most other attractions (recreational
destinations, Golf courses, ...)
