    CFP: IAENG International Conference on Bioinformatics ICB 2008

    From: International Association of Engineers

    The 2008 IAENG International Conference on Bioinformatics
    19-21 March, 2008, Hong Kong

    The conference ICB'08 is held under the International MultiConference
    of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2008. The IMECS 2008 is organized
    by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), and serves as
    good platforms for the engineering community members to meet with each
    other and to exchange ideas. The last conference in 2007 has attracted
    a total of over one thousand participants from over 50 countries.

    All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers
    will be published in the conference proceeding (ISBN:
    978-988-98671-8-8). The abstracts will be indexed and available at
    major academic databases. The accepted papers will also be considered
    for publication in the special issues of the journal Engineering
    Letters, in IAENG journals and in edited books. Revised and expanded
    version of the selected papers may also be included as book chapters
    in the standalone edited books under the framework of cooperation
    between IAENG and Springer.

    Important Dates:

    Draft Manuscript submission deadline: 12 December, 2007
    Camera-Ready papers & Pre-registration due: 31 December, 2007
    ICB 2008: 19-21 March, 2008


    ICB 2008 is now accepting manuscript submissions. Prospective authors
    are invited to submit their draft paper in full paper (any appropriate
    style) to imecs{at} by 12 December, 2007. The submitted file
    can be in MS Word format, PS format, or PDF formats.

    It is our target that the reviewing process and the result
    notification for each submitted manuscript can be completed within one
    month from its submission. The reviewing process is to ensure the
    quality of the accepted papers in the WCE congress. The conferences
    have enjoyed high reputation among many research colleagues ( for
    example, see the or
    or ).
