Since 2005, we are organizing an international conference "Algebraic Biology" that focuses on the application of computer algebra, automated reasoning, hybrid algebraic and numeric computation, which is also called symbolic computation, to all types of problems from biology: AB'05, AB'07, and AB'08. These conferences were quite successful. For the next issue of this conference, we would like to extend the range of mathematical methods in their applications.
In 2010, RISC and
AIST jointly will
will organize "Algebraic and Numeric Biology" (ANB'10), which is renamed after our
traditional name, "Algebraic Biology", to consider its wider scope of mathematical methods,
especially numeric computation. ANB'10 will be held
at the RISC Institute, which has a
long tradition in symbolic methods and, in addition, has nice conference facilities
including our "RISC Castle", an 800
years old remodeled medieval building with nice restaurant.
ANB'10 is an international forum to promote discussion and interaction between researchers who apply
different computational approaches to various issues in biology / life sciences. The conference covers all aspects of applications of algebraic and numeric approaches in biology, e.g.
system analysis and design
process control and design
molecular structure analysis
microarray analysis and design
hybrid symbolic numerical methods
approximate and numerical methods
in various computing paradigms like
Contributions that present recent results including significant work-in-progress,
and identify and explore new directions of research are welcome.
Please draw your attention to the fact
that we will have (similarly to what
we had at AB 2007) an extra session on "Work in Progress".
Please feel motivated to submit talks with
papers, which need not be fully worked out, for
this session and clearly mark them with "for the Work in Progress Session".
Refereeing for this session will be mainly on the
appropriateness of the paper w.r.t. to the scope
of ANB and the topicality of ideas and not so much on
