Further Information:

Submitted papers must have not been published or be currently under the consideration for publication in any other journal or conference with formal proceedings. All accepted papers will have to be presented by one of the authors at the conference. Accepted papers will be published in one of two journal supplements, either to BMC Genomics or to BMC Bioinformatics. BMC will charge publication fees independently from the conference registration.
