CO-CHAIRS AND VICE-CHAIRS:

   Prof. H. R. Arabnia, University of Georgia, Georgia, USA
       (email: [log in to unmask] - Tel: (706) 542-3480)
   Dr. Jack Y. Yang, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
   Dr. Mary Qu Yang, National Human Genome Research Institute, National
       Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, MD, USA

PURPOSE / HISTORY:

   BIOCOMP'08 is part of WORLDCOMP'08.  WORLDCOMP is the largest annual
   gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering
   and applied computing; it is composed of a number of joint conferences.
   Many of these joint conferences are the premier conferences for
   presentation of advances in their respective fields.  We anticipate
   to have over 2,000 attendees from over 82 countries participating in
   the 2008 event.

   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
   to form these WORLDCOMP/BIOCOMP annual conferences facilitates
   communication among researchers from all over the world in different
   fields.  Both inward research and outward research (multi-disciplinary,
   inter-disciplinary, and applications) will be covered during the
   conference.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

   Prospective authors are invited to submit their full paper
   (about 5 to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to
   Prof. H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 25, 2008 ([log in to unmask]). email
   submissions in MS Doc or PDF formats are preferable.  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 of each author as well as the name
   of the conference the paper is being submitted to (ie, BIOCOMP'08).
   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.

   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 one member of the program
   committee who will recommend a decision to the co-chairs of the track.
   The track chairs will make the final decision.  Lastly, the Camera-Ready
   papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.
