I thought there might be member of the Moby community that would be
interested in this conference.
Call for Papers
Technical Session on
Bioinformatic Workflows and Web Services
The 2007 International Conference on
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
BIOCOMP'07: June 25-28, 2007
Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, USA
To be held as part of
The 2007 World Congress in
Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
Congress/Conference web site: http://www.worldacademyofscience.org/worldcomp07/ws.
A Computational workflow can be thought of as a collection of analytic steps and data that define the paths that can be taken to complete a task. Workflows in bioinformatics are becoming increasingly important in the achievement of scientific advances and generally require access to multiple, distributed data sources and analytic tools. The World Wide Web can be used to provide the application to application communication that facilitates the construction of automated workflows. The programmatic interfaces developed for this purpose are referred to as Web Services. This technical session will provide the opportunity for computing and biology researchers to share ideas and concerns regarding the semantic web, web services and how they may be improved.
Submission of Papers:
Prospective authors are invited to submit their full paper (about 5 to 8 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to Asai Asaithambi by April 1, 2007 (Asai.Asaithambi at usd.edu). E-mail submissions in MS Word or PDF formats are preferable (postal mail submissions are also acceptable.) 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, email address, and telephone number for each author. The first page should also identify the name of the author who will be presenting the paper (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the content of the paper. Finally, the name of the conference/track that the paper is being submitted to must be stated on the first page.
Each paper will be refereed by two experts in the field who are independent of the conference program committee. The session chair will make the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.
Members of Program and Organizing Committees:
The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing; artificial intelligence; imaging science; databases; simulation; software engineering; embedded systems; internet and web technologies; communications; computer security; and bioinformatics.) Many members of the program committee for individual conferences include renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of large research laboratories, IEEE Fellows, heads/chairs of departments, deans and provosts. Each committee also includes two Student Members (in their final stages of their PhD programs) who are identified as such. Refer to the conference web sites for the list of members of program committee.

Purpose / History:
This set of joint conferences is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. Many of the tracks of WORLDCOMP are considered to be premier conferences for presentation of advances in their respective fields. We anticipate having 2000 or more attendees from over 75 countries participating in the 2007 event.
The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research conferences 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 to form these annual conferences facilitates communication among researchers from all over the world in different fields of computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. Both inward research (core areas of computer science and engineering) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and applications) will be covered during the conferences.
April 1, 2007: Submission of full/draft papers (about 5 to 8 pages)
April 15, 2007: Notification of acceptance
April 27, 2007: Camera-Ready papers and Registration due
25-28, 2007: The 2007 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP'07)
