AlCoB aims at promoting and displaying excellent research using string and graph algorithms and combinatorial optimization to deal with problems in biological sequence analysis, genome rearrangement, phylogeny reconstruction, and structure prediction.
Previous events were held in Tarragona, Mexico City, Trujillo (Spain), Aveiro, Hong Kong and Berkeley.
The conference will address several of the current challenges in computational biology, with topics including:
Special focus will be put on methodology and significant room will be reserved for scholars at the beginning of their career.
Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:
AlCoB 2020 will take place in Missoula, Montana, a college town located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, near Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. The meeting will be hosted in the University Center, a few hundred feet from the base of Mount Sentinel.
AlCoB 2019 will consist of:
Authors are invited to submit non-anonymized papers in English presenting original and unpublished research. Papers should not exceed 12 single-spaced pages (all included) and should be prepared according to the standard format for Springer Verlag's LNCS series (see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0).
Upload submissions to: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=alcob2020
A volume of proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS/LNBI series will be available by the time of the conference.
A special issue of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (2018 JCR impact factor: 2.89) will be later published containing peer-reviewed substantially extended versions of some of the papers contributed to the conference. Submissions to it will be by invitation.
