_Apologies for multiple posting_ ================================================================ PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS CMSB 2010 8th Conference on Computational Methods in Systems Biology September 29 - October 1, 2010 Trento, Italy http://www.cosbi.eu/cmsb2010/ ================================================================ The CMSB series solicits innovative research focussing on the dynamics and on the analysis of biological systems, networks, and data. The Conference brings together computer scientists, biologists, mathematicians, engineers, and physicists interested in a system-level understanding of biological systems. CMSB 2010 invites submissions of both papers and posters covering a broad range of research in systems biology. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: original models or paradigms for modelling biological processes together with their application domains; frameworks and techniques for verifying, validating, analyzing, and simulating biological systems; inference from high-throughput experimental data; model integration from biological databases. Contributions on modelling and analysis of relevant biological case studies are especially encouraged.

AWARD: CMSB 2010 is organized by The Microsoft Research - University of Trento Centre for Computational and Systems Biology (CoSBi) that offers a 4000 EUR award to the best paper reporting on BlenX-based research results, and authored by people not affiliated with CoSBi. The award will be presented only if there are at least three competing eligible papers, and will be judged by the Programme Committee.
