RECOMB 2006 Registration
Opening This Week
2-5, 2006. Venice Convention at The Cinema Palace, Venice
Lido - Italy
Research in Computational Molecular Biology (RECOMB),
is preparing to unveil a new level of distinction for its tenth
anniversary conference on the fabled resort island of Lido in the
enchanting Italian city of Venice. The 2006 conference is being
sponsored by the Universita' degli Studi di Padova, and the Department
of Information Engineering at the University of Padova, Italy. The
conference is being chaired by Concettina Guerra, while Alberto
Apostolico is serving as Program Chair; both chairs are affiliated
with Georgia Tech in the USA and University of Padova in Italy.
The RECOMB series focuses on theoretical advances
in computational biology and their applications in molecular biology
and medicine. The origins of the conference came from the mathematical
and computational side of the field, and there remains to be a certain
focus on computational advances. The 2006 conference promises to
be the biggest RECOMB yet, with over 700 attendees expected for
the four day affair, and the Lido of Venice is sure to be as much
of a draw as the exceptional science itself.
The meeting will feature up to eight impressive
keynote speakers and although the paper notification date is not
until December 9, the organizers anticipate an acceptance rate of
about 1 in 6 from the 220 submissions received. The poster submission
page will open after paper notification, so start watching the RECOMB
2006 website from December 10th for full instructions on poster
submissions and related deadlines.
ISCB is pleased to announce that members are offered
an exclusive registration discount due to our long standing affiliation
and mutual support of the RECOMB conference series. We are also
once again sponsoring travel fellowship funds to enable a select
number of ISCB student and post doc members to attend RECOMB 2006.
Members wanting to be considered for ISCB funding must apply directly
through the RECOMB site. As travel fellowship resources are very
limited, not all applicants are guaranteed funding.
See the conference website at http://recomb06.dei.unipd.it/home.html
for full conference information, including online registration.
Early registration closes April 4, 2005, and pre-registration closes
May 1st. So, sign up now to make plans to join 700 of your colleagues
at of the premier international computational biology conferences
