RECOMB 2007 Call for Papers is Now Closed
Key Dates for important notification dates) 

RECOMB 2007 – April 21-25, 2007
Oakland Marriott City Center,
Oakland, CA, USA
Submission Deadline: September 30, 2006 at 23:59 GMT.

The Eleventh Annual International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology (RECOMB 2007) will be held at the Oakland Marriott City Center, Oakland, CA USA. RECOMB 2007 will provide a general forum for disseminating the latest research in bioinformatics and computational biology. It is a multidisciplinary conference that brings together academic and industrial scientists from molecular biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics and statistics.

Papers reporting on original research (both theoretical and experimental) in all areas of computational molecular biology are sought.

Typical but not exclusive topics of interest include:

    • Molecular sequence analysis
    • Genomics
    • Genetics
    • Molecular evolution
    • Proteomics
    • Protein structure
    • Gene regulation
    • Gene expression

Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished work. At the time the extended abstract is submitted to RECOMB, and for the entire review period, the paper (or essentially the same paper) should not be under review by any other conference with published proceedings or by a scientific journal. If accepted for RECOMB 2007, a paper may be submitted for journal publication after the authors have received the acceptance notice.


The program committee will rigorously review submitted abstracts, and 30-40 will be accepted for presentation in the conference. Accepted abstracts will be published as a proceedings volume in the series of "Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics" from Springer-Verlag, that will be available at the conference. A selection of accepted papers will be invited to submit full journal versions to a special issue of the Journal of Computational Biology devoted to RECOMB 2007.

Manuscript Preparation

A manuscript should start with a succinct statement of the problem, the results achieved, their significance and a comparison with previous work. This material should be understandable to non-specialists. A technical exposition directed to the specialist should follow. The length, excluding cover page and bibliography, should not exceed 10 pages. The manuscript should be easy to read, using at least 11 point font size on U.S. standard 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper with no less than one inch margin all around. If authors believe that more details are absolutely necessary to substantiate the claims of the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix, which might be read, at the discretion of the reviewers. An e-mail address for the contact author should be included. Manuscripts that deviate significantly from these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Key Dates

July 1, 2006: First day for manuscript submission

September 30, 2006, at 23:59 GMT: Paper submission deadline

December 10, 2006: Notification of acceptance/rejection

February 1, 2007: Deadline for reception of files of final papers


The program committee will referee the conference submissions. Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by e-mail on or before December 10, 2006. We request the author of each accepted paper its LaTeX file(s) or MS WORD file in the special format for Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics by February 1, 2007. An author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the conference and present the paper; otherwise alternative arrangements should be made to have the paper presented.
