> CALL FOR PAPERS AND ABSTRACTS
> Second RECOMB Workshop on Computational Cancer Biology
> RECOMB-CCB '10
> June 24-25, 2010
> The Norwegian Radium Hospital, Oslo, Norway
> To be added to the CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT MAILING LIST, please
> subscribe through the website listed above.
> THEME AND SCOPE
> Cancer biology is undergoing a revolution driven by the application of
> high-throughput techniques such as genome sequencing, gene and miRNA
> expression profiling, and mass spectrometry to tumor samples. These
> techniques produce large quantities of data with the potential to
> transform fundamental knowledge of cancer biology and clinical
> Cancer is disease of tremendous complexity, and thus the analysis and
> interpretation of this data demands sophisticated, specialized
> computational methods.
> This workshop brings together leading researchers in the mathematical,
> computational and life sciences to discuss emerging frontiers in
> computational cancer research. The emphasis of all contributed work
> be on applying statistical and algorithmic approaches to improve our
> understanding of cancer and on the development of useful, effective
> efficient new methods in this area.
> We solicit contributions in four different categories as follows:
> 1. Manuscripts describing original work on computational aspects of
> cancer research. These should describe method development and
> application and will be considered for a special track publication in
> BMC Bioinformatics. Please see manuscript guidelines below and on the
> conference website.
> 2. Highlights Track abstracts. 1-2 pages describing
> computational aspects of work that has recently been published
> elsewhere. These will be considered for short presentations as well as
> for posters.
> 3. Abstracts for short talks. 1-2 pages describing
> original work, including software applications. These will be
> for short presentations as well as for posters.
> 4. Posters.
> Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
> * Gene and protein expression data analysis in cancer Analysis of copy
> * number variation Statistical genetics of cancer Biomarkers & cancer
> * signatures Models of cancer progression or development The role of
> * miRNA and small RNAs in cancer Epigenetics Inference of cancer
> * networks e.g. signaling networks Integrative approaches to
> * understanding cancer
> KEY DATES
> Paper submission deadline April 25, 2010
> Notification of paper acceptance May 10, 2010
> Final manuscript due May 25, 2010
> Abstract submission deadline May 20, 2010

> CALL FOR PAPERS
> Manuscripts should be no more than 10 single-spaced US letter or A4
> pages with at most a 6.5x9" text area in at least 11 point font. Title
> and authors, corresponding author's email address, 100-250 word
> abstract, references, figures, and tables all included. An optional
> short appendix may contain details or additional data to be
> consulted at
> the discretion of the program committee. Authors of accepted
> manuscripts will have to reformat them for BMC Bioinformatics.
> Manuscripts must be submitted electronically in PDF format via the
> EasyChair system (on the conference website). Submissions must be
> received in electronic form by April 25, 2010.
> Manuscripts submitted for review should represent original, previously
> unpublished work. At the time of submission to the workshop, and for
> the entire review period, the work should not be under review by any
> other conference or scientific journal.
> Accepted submissions will appear in BMC Bioinformatics. Authors of
> accepted submissions are invited to give a presentation at the
> CALL FOR ABSTRACTS AND POSTERS
> (Tracks for highlights and for short talks)
> Abstracts containing original and unpublished material will be
> considered for oral presentation. Abstracts describing computational
> aspects of work recently published elsewhere will be considered for
> presentation in the Highlights track.
> All abstracts are limited to two pages, can contain figures, and
> must be
> submitted electronically in PDF format via the EasyChair system (on
> conference website). To be considered for oral presentaion,
> must be received in electronic form by May 20, 2010.
> Abstracts for poster presentation only will be accepted until June 1,
> Selection of abstracts for oral and poster presentation will be made
> the program committee.
