Call For Papers

The annual RECOMB Comparative Genomics Satellite Conference (RECOMB-CG) brings together leading researchers in the mathematical, computational and life sciences to discuss cutting edge research in comparative genomics, with an emphasis on computational approaches and the analysis of novel experimental results. The program will include keynote talks, contributed talks, and a poster session.

We invite high-quality original full papers on topics related to the conference theme. We encourage submissions that offer new biological findings or otherwise highlight their relevance to biology.

The topics of interest include:

  • genome evolution
  • population genomics
  • genome rearrangements
  • genome variation, diversity and dynamics
  • phylogenomics
  • comparative tools for genome assembly
  • comparison of functional networks
  • gene identification and/or annotation
  • cancer evolutionary genomics
  • comparative epigenomics
  • paleogenomics
  • epidemiology

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, a volume in the Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series. In addition, authors of selected papers will be invited, but not required, to submit a significantly extended version of their papers to Algorithms for Molecular Biology. Extended papers submitted will be handled by the Program Committee co-chairs. Authors who choose to publish their extended manuscripts will have to pay the journal’s publication fees.

Important dates:

  • Paper Submission Deadline: June 18, 2018 June 25, 2018
  • Author Notification: July 20, 2018
  • Final Version Due: August 3, 2018
  • Conference: October 9-12, 2018
