CEC 2004 - Call for Papers
 Special session on Evolutionary Computation in Bioinformatics and Computational
 Biology
 The sixth Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC 2004), sponsored
 by the IEEE Neural Networks Society, IEE, and the Evolutionary
 Programming Society, will be held in Portland Marriott Downtown,
 Portland, Oregon, USA, June 19-23. 2004. See http://cec2004.org for
 more details.
 Bioinformatics and computational biology present a number of difficult
 optimization problems with large search spaces. Recent applications of
 evolutionary computation in this area suggest that they are well
 suited to this area of research. This special session will highlight
 applications of evolutionary computation to a broad range of topics
 including drug docking, protein folding, sequence alignment, genomics,
 proteomics, metabolics, and medicine. Particular interest will be
 directed towards novel applications of evolutionary computation to
 problems in these areas.
 Submission deadlines
 Submission of papers: 31. January 2004
 Notification of acceptance: 15. February 2004
 Camera-ready paper: 1. March 2004
 Papers should follow the formatting guidelines for CEC2004 regular papers (see
 http://cec2004.org/Submission.htm for more details), and
 should be submitted
 through the CEC04 submission website (see
 http://cec2004.org/review/upload.php). Remember to select
 the "Evolutionary
 computation in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology" in the
 "Additional
 topics" field. Submissions should be in PDF format and should not exceed 8
 pages in length. This includes all figures, tables, graphs, photos, and
 bibliography entries.
