Call for Papers and Participations

With an emphasis on the applications of computer, physical, engineering and mathematical models for solving modern challenging problems in life sciences, CMLS’07 aims to bring biologists, medical and health-science researchers together with computational scientists to focus on problems at the frontier of computational life sciences. A goal of this meeting is that the interactions of scientists across several disciplines will lead to the identification of new scientific investigations, shape future directions for strategic research, and help industrial users apply advanced computational techniques for solving practical life-science problems. As another important aspect, CMLS’07 aims to provide opportunities for postgraduate research students to present latest research results and establish links with experts across several scientific disciplines.

CMLS’07 will take place on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, 17-19 December 2007, under the joint hosting of the Bioinformatics Applications Research Centre at James Cook University and the HCNR-Centre for Bioinformatics at Harvard Medical School. This symposium will consist of invited talks by leading international experts in computational life sciences, contributed papers, tutorials, and social programs.

Themes of Interest

  • Bio-informatics: computational models for biology
  • Biomedical informatics: computational models for biomedicine
  • Eco-informatics: computational models for ecology
  • Agro-informatics: computational models for agriculture

Topics include, but not limited to the following:
Image analysis, computer vision, pattern analysis and classification, information visualization, signal processing, control theory, information theory, statistical analysis, information fusion, numerical analysis, fractals and chaos, optimization, simulation and modeling, parallel computing, computational intelligence methods, machine learning, data mining, decision support systems, database integration and management.


The proceedings of the symposium will be published as a book in the American Institute of Physics (AIP) series.  The online version will be published simultaneously with the printed book.  The printed book and the online version will have the volume number in the AIP conference proceedings series, ISSN and ISBN, and will be registered at the Library of Congress.  Publication will be under AIP copyright.

Extended versions of selected papers presented during the symposium will be published in special issues of international journals including Pattern Recognition, International Journal of Hybrid Intelligent Systems, and in an edited book in the Bioinformatics & Biomedical Imaging series published by Artech House Publishers.
