Workshop on Algorithms in Bioinformatics covers research in
all aspects of algorithmic work in bioinformatics and computational
biology. The emphasis is on discrete algorithms, that address
important problems in molecular biology, genomics and genetics
that are founded on sound models, that are computationally
efficient, and that have been implemented and tested in simulations
and on real datasets. The goal is to present recent research
results, including significant work-in-progress, and to identify
and explore directions of future research.
WABI 2002 will be held in conjunction with ESA
2002 and APPROX
2002. The three conferences are jointly called ALGO
2002, and will take place in Rome, Italy, September 16-21,
2002. The conferences will be held at the School of Engineering,
University of Rome "La Sapienza".
2001 was sponsored by EATCS
(the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science)
and jointly organized and colocated with WAE 2001 and ESA
2001 in the context of ALGO 2001. For general information
on WABI, see the web site http://www.brics.dk/wabi2001/.
research papers (including significant work-in-progress) or
state-of-the-art surveys are solicited in all aspects of algorithms
in bioinformatics, including, but not limited to:
proceedings of the workshop will be published in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer Verlag.
and approximate algorithms for genomics, genetics, sequence
analysis, gene and signal recognition, alignment, molecular
evolution, phylogenetics, structure determination or prediction,
gene expression and gene networks, proteomics, functional
genomics, and drug design.
of methods, software and dataset repositories for development
and testing of such algorithms and their underlying models.
computing approaches to computationally hard problems in
bioinformatics, particularly optimization problems.
should consist of an extended abstract of no more than 15
pages in 11pt font, preferably using the Springer LNCS style.
An abstract should start with a presentation of the biological
problem, the results achieved, their significance and a comparison
with previous work. This material should be understandable
to non-specialists. A more technical exposition should follow
and an optional short appendix may contain details or additional
data to be consulted at the discretion of the program committee.
The submission must include the corresponding author's email
NOTE: We would like to encourage submissions from researchers
in the biological community who may not be familiar with competitive
computer science style conferences. We encourage authors to
use a sufficient number of pages to make the fullest and most
compelling presentation of their work.
All submissions must be online, using the online
standard postscript file must be sent on or before April 26
(your time zone will do), 2002, for your submission to be
considered. Authors who experience problems generating a suitable
Postscript file or whose submission exceeds the file size
limit should contact the program chairs.
Simultaneous submission to another conference or journal is
allowed. Authors are asked to inform the program co-chairs
at the time of submission of the simultaneous submission.
If the paper has been accepted to another conference or a
journal before WABI 2002, the authors will be allowed only
a short abstract (1 page) in the proceedings of WABI 2002
and not an extended abstract.
In order to ensure inclusion of their work in the proceedings,
authors must present their accepted papers at the workshop.
