AIMS AND SCOPE

The Third International Conference on Algebraic Biology, AB'08, is an
international forum to promote discussion and interaction between
researchers who apply symbolic computation (e.g. algebraic, discrete,
logical, hybrid) methods to various issues in biology / life
sciences. The conference covers all aspects of applications of
symbolic computation methods in biology (see CONFERENCE TOPICS).

IMPORTANT DATES

January 7, 2008     Deadline for abstracts
January 14, 2008    Deadline for full papers
March 31, 2008      Notification of acceptance
April 28, 2008      Camera-ready paper submission

CONFERENCE TOPICS

The conference covers all aspects of applications of symbolic
computation methods in biology, e.g.
    * mathematical modeling
    * model identification
    * system analysis and design
    * system verification
    * system synthesis
    * etc.
in
    * molecular sequence analysis
    * molecular structure analysis
    * molecular evolution
    * genomics
    * proteomics
    * gene regulation
    * gene expression
    * gene ontology
    * network inference
    * etc.
using
    * polynomial methods
    * group theory
    * rewriting
    * automated reasoning
    * automata theory
    * formal language methods
    * combinatorics
    * graph theory
    * artificial intelligence
    * hybrid symbolic-numerical methods
    * differential algebra
    * local analysis
    * etc.
in various computing paradigms like
    * sequential
    * parallel
    * distributed
    * grid computing
    * cellular
    * genetic
    * etc.

SUBMISSION

Authors are invited to submit original papers that have not been
submitted for publication elsewhere. Contributions that present recent
results (including significant work-in-progress) and identify and
explore new directions of research are welcome. Submitted papers will
be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will appear in the proceedings
before the conference (the proceedings of AB'07 have been published in
the Springer LNCS series). See the conference website for details on
the submission format.
