Call for papers, abstracts and challenge submissions for:
RECOMB Systems Biology
RECOMB Regulatory Genomics
DREAM Reverse Engineering Challenges
RICCI Cancer Informatics Symposium

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to welcome you to register for one of the premier annual meetings in Regulatory Genomics, Systems Biology, and Reverse Engineering of Biological Systems (DREAM), held for the first time in Europe this year, together with RICCI Symposium on Cancer Informatics.

The joint meeting will be held on October 14-19 in Barcelona, Spain, starting on Friday October 14th at 9am and finishing on Wednesday October 19 at 5pm. For more information on the program, please visit:

Submission is now open for:
(1) Full-length papers, to be reviewed by Genome Research (GR) of the Journal for Computational Biology (JCB), together with our program committee. Submission deadline: Friday July 15, 2011 at 11:59pm Pacific Time (PT).
(2) One-page abstracts of previously unpublished work, to be reviewed by the conference chairs and selected for either oral or poster presentation. Submission deadline: Monday August 1st, 2011 at 11:59pm PT.

(4) Prediction Submissions for reverse engineering challenges on alternative splicing, parameter estimation in gene regulatory networks, and gene expression prediction. Best performers will be selected for oral presentations. Deadline for prediction submission is Monday Aug 22nd 2011.

All accepted papers will be published online in the respective journal in coordination with the conference and will be guaranteed an oral presentation. All abstracts will be included in the abstract book to be distributed to all participants at the four conferences, and will be treated as personal communications.
