German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB) Call for Papers

Call for Papers

The German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB) is an annual, international conference devoted to all areas of bioinformatics, with a tradition reaching back in the 1990ies. Recent meetings attracted an international audience of 250 - 300 participants. In 2014, the GCB is hosted by the bioinformatics groups of Bielefeld University. It is organized by the German Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (DECHEMA), and supported by the Special Interest Group on Informatics in Biology of the German Society of Computer Science (GI) and the Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM).

GCB 2014 invites the submission of papers on all aspects of bioinformatics. Areas of interest include

- Genomics and Meta-Genomics
- Bioimage Informatics
- Poly-omics Analysis
- Regulatory Networks and Pathways
- Structural Modeling
- Biodata Visualization
- Personalized Medicine
- Translational Medicine
- Big Data Management and Interpretation
- Bioinformatics in the Cloud

The conference language will be English. GCB invites contributions of the following types.

Regular papers should have 8-10 pages and will be published in the conference proceedings (GI-Edition Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI)). Paper submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee and judged by quality, originality and relevance. Submissions may cover any area of bioinformatics.

Highlight papers should report on recent work, preferably published during the present or past year. Topics include biological findings with bioinformatics methods, new computational methods or new software tools. Highlight papers should be submitted as an abstract of at most 4 pages (including references). Submissions will be judged by the importance and novelty of the findings and relevance to the conference audience. Highlight abstracts will be made available via the conference website.

Posters should present recent scientific work in any area of bioinformatics. Poster abstracts should not exceed 300 words including references.

Submission with easy chair (via the conference website www.gcb2014.de) is open from the beginning of May until May 30, 2014.

The conference program will be augmented by additional satellite workshops. Please check our call for workshop proposals.
