                          BIOCOMP'09
      The 2009 International Conference on Bioinformatics
                  and Computational Biology
               July 13-16, 2009, Las Vegas, USA

           http://www.world-academy-of-science.org/

You are invited to submit a paper (see instructions below.)
This announcement is ONLY for those who missed the opportunity
to submit their papers in response to earlier announcements
(authors who have already been notified that their papers have
been accepted/not-accepted should IGNORE this announcement.)

This is a Call For Papers for publication in the Final Edition
of the conference proceedings.  All papers submitted in response
to this announcement will be evaluated for publication in the
Final Edition of the proceedings which will go to press soon
after the conference (publication date: late August 2009).

BIOCOMP'09 will be held in Las Vegas, USA, July 13-16, 2009.  The
conference will be held simultaneously (ie, same location and dates)
with WORLDCOMP'09 (The 2009 World Congress in Computer Science,
Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing).

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

Prospective authors are invited to submit/upload their papers
in pdf or MS doc (about 7 pages, single spaced with the font size
of 10 or 11) to the following web site:
http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/

All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable.  Authors of
accepted papers will later be asked to follow a particular
typing instructions to prepare their final paper for publication.

Papers must not have been previously published or currently
submitted for publication elsewhere.  The first page of the paper
should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal
address, and email address for each author.  Accepted papers
will be published in the Final Edition of BIOCOMP'09 Proceedings
(will go to press in late August.)

All submissions will be evaluated for originality, significance,
clarity, and soundness.  Each paper will be refereed by two
researchers in the topical area.

IMPORTANT DATES:

May 27, 2009:       Submission of full papers for evaluation (about 7 pages)
June 10, 2009:      Notification of acceptance
June 24, 2009:      Registration
July 13-16, 2009:   BIOCOMP'09 International Conference
July 24, 2009:      Camera-Ready Papers Due for publication in the
                    Final Edition of the proceedings.

LOCATION OF CONFERENCE:

BIOCOMP will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada,
USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels).  This is a mega
hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms.
It is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle service to and
from the airport.  This hotel has many recreational attractions,
including: spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy River, wave pool,
lighted tennis courts, nightly shows, a number of restaurants, ...
The negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very reasonable.
The hotel is within walking distance from most other attractions.
