Accepted Paper (Final Version) Submission Deadline

Papers will be assigned to an Area Chair and three reviews sought. If accepted, papers will be published as the conference proceedings in an open access, online-only, section of a regular issue of the Bioinformatics journal with CDs available for conference delegates. The proceedings will be available on-line approximately one month prior to the conference opening.

Publication of the Proceedings as an online part of the journal would result in fully citable articles, indexed by Medline and ISI. See the online-only Methods section of Nucleic Acids Research – – for an example of online-only publication by Oxford.

Presenters of accepted papers will be given a 20-minute slot (plus 5 minutes for questions) in the conference schedule to provide a summary and update to the work.

Templates are available (see below) however it is not necessary to use these except for a final submission after acceptance. For review purposes it is only necessary for submitted papers to include an abstract of not more than 250 words and be no more than 10 pages (single space, 10 point, either one or two columns) in length, including abstract, figures, tables, and bibliography. Supplemental material will be allowed for accepted papers but should NOT be submitted as part of the initial submission.

Papers will only be accepted electronically at the submission site in either Postscript or PDF format. The submission site will be available from January 13, 2006.

Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished work. At the time the paper is submitted to ISMB 2006, and for the entire review period, the paper should not be under review by any other conference or scientific journal.

The deadline for ISMB 2006 paper submissions is Wednesday, March 1, 2006. (You have until 11.59 p.m. in the time zone of your choice).

Submissions will be reviewed by three members of the Program Committee. Notification of acceptance will be given by Tuesday, April 18, 2006. Final, corrected versions of accepted papers, which must conform to the formatting guidelines available when the paper is accepted, are due no later than Wednesday, May 10, 2006. Details of the submission process and format of accepted papers will be provided at the time of paper acceptance. Papers not accepted may be resubmitted as a poster by May 1, 2006.

For questions concerning the scientific content of submissions please contact one of the program chairs: Søren Brunak or Philip Bourne.
