ECCB CONFERENCE FORMAT
With ECCB 2002, the European Computational Biology
Community started a new revolving conference scheme.
Within this scheme, a different country or region hosts the European ECCB event every year. The successful
regional bioinformatics conferences, e.g., the German
Bioinformatics Conference (GCB), Les journees ouvertes
en biologie, informatique et mathematiques (JOBIM),
the Scandinavian Bioinformatics Conference etc., are
integrated into this scheme in the respect that one of these
conferences may be elevated to ECCB if the corresponding
region is hosting ECCB in the respective year.
The conference covers computational methods for
molecular biology that arise in the context of genomics
and proteomics technologies in the fields of molecular
biology, molecular medicine and pharmaceutics. Biological
areas of interest include molecular sequence
analysis, phylogenetics and evolution, molecular structure,
molecular docking and drug design, metabolic and
regulatory networks, gene expression and regulation, gene
and protein function, modeling of cellular processes, and
analysis of genetic variations. Computational methods
covered in the conference include machine learning,
pattern recognition, knowledge representation, databases,
combinatorial optimization, stochastic modeling, string
and graph algorithms, computer linguistics, robotics,
constraint satisfaction and parallel computation.
The ECCB conference series is partially supported by The Network of Excellence Biosapiens of the EU.
