The Workshop on Algorithms in Bioinformatics (WABI), established in 2001, is one of the major annual conferences on algorithms in bioinformatics. WABI 2016 is held on August 22-24 in Aarhus, Denmark, as part of ALGO 2016. It is hosted by Aarhus University and its Department of Computer Science, and is organized with support from the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS).
For scientific information, please contact the WABI program committee co-chairs Martin Frith (martin at cbrc.jp) or Christian N. S. Pedersen (cstorm at birc.au.dk). For organisational information, please refer to the ALGO 2016 website.
August 24, 2016: WABI 2016 has ended. We hope that you enjoyed the workshop. Thanks to all involved in workshop, and especially thanks to all speakers and poster presenters. We hope that many of you will help out with and/or attend future WABIs. Martin Frith and Christian N. S. Pedersen (WABI 2016 co-chairs).
The WABI 2016 proceedings (LNBI 9838) is available for free via Springer Link until September 11 using the link below.
All research in algorithmic work in bioinformatics, computational biology and systems biology. The emphasis is mainly on discrete algorithms and machine-learning methods that address important problems in molecular biology, that are founded on sound models, that are computationally efficient, and that have been implemented and tested in simulations and on real datasets. The goal is to present recent research results, including significant work-in-progress, and to identify and explore directions of future research.
Original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) or state-of-the-art surveys are solicited in all aspects of algorithms in bioinformatics, computational biology and systems biology - including, but not limited to:
