Cold Spring Harbor Conference on Computational Cell Biology March 6-9, 2007

Keynote speakers: Adam Arkin (University of California, Berkeley), Sydney Brenner (Salk Institute)

Meeting goal: to foster fruitful and creative dialogue between experimental cell biologists and mathematical/computational modelers with common interests in the regulation of cell physiology. Emphasis will be placed on areas of greatest current interest and importance, such as cell signaling, motility, cell proliferation and death, calcium dynamics, microbial physiology, and development.

IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology April 1-5, 2007

This international symposium series, sponsered by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, brings together top researchers, practitioners and students from around the world on April 1-5, 2007 to discuss the latest advances in the field of computational intelligence applied to issues in bioinformatics and the biosciences. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of no more than eight (8) pages including results, figures and references. Submissions will be peer reviewed and accepted papers published in the conference proceedings.

Topics covered include: applications of computational intelligence technologies (evolutionary computation, neural computation, fuzzy systems, and other emerging techniques) in the following or similar areas:

  • Microarray analysis
  • Phylogeny analysis and construction
  • Feature selection in biological data
  • Motif and pattern discovery
  • Protein and RNA structure prediction
  • Ontologies and taxonomies
  • High-throughput biotechnology
  • Sequence analysis and alignment
  • Ecological modelling
  • Cell simulation and modelling
  • Molecular computing
  • Associated theory
