 --                LAST CALL FOR PAPERS                      --
 --        CompLife '06   (         --
 Following the success of the 1st International Symposium on
  Computational Life Science in Konstanz in September 2005
 The 2nd International Symposium on Computational Life Science
                   is to be held in
    Cambridge, United Kingdom, on September 27 - 29, 2006
 Topics of Interest
 The focus of the symposium are computational methods for the
 modeling, analysis and exploration of all aspects of life sciences,
 ranging from effects on the molecular level to complex interactions
 Of prime importance for this truly interdisciplinary event will be the
 integration of the three disciplines Computer Science, Biology, and
 Chemistry. The program will consist of contributed presentations
 regarding applicational aspects as well as new theoretical
 In addition, due to the interdisciplinary nature of the symposium
 the program will feature not only plenary speakers but also a series
 of short tutorials introducing relevant areas of the specific
 research fields to the audience from the respective other fields
 such as drug discovery, chemical similarity searching, receptor site
 docking, protein structure prediction, data mining, machine learning,
 to name a few.
 Submissions will be reviewed by representatives of all fields to
 make sure that not only the algorithmic aspects are suited for
 publication but the application to life science is promising as well.
 Submissions are sought in (but not limited to) the following areas:
  Molecular data analysis
  Systems biology
  Analysis of heterogenous information sources
  Human Computer Interaction in Information Mining
  Computational proteomics
  Integrative data analysis
  Statistical data analysis
  Data mining
  Molecular simulation
  Biological networks / Metabolism
  Molecular informatics
  Data pipelining
  Data visualization
  Large scale chemical computation
  Data integration/semantics
  Grid/web services
  Computer architectures in life sciences
 The online submission system is open now. The link and further information
 regarding the submission is available on the conference web site.
 Student Grants
 A limited number of Student Grants are available for CompLife 2006:
 First priority will be given to full-time students who are first
 authors of papers and present their paper at the conference. Grants
 are handed out at the conference and will be in the amount of a
 maximum of EUR500, covering registration, travel, and accommodation.
 When submitting a paper, students should indicate that they plan to
 apply for a student grant.
 Free Life Science Software Session
 A special session about free software in Life Sciences, where
 authors can present their programs, will be organised. For more
 information have a look at the conference web page.
