JOBIM 2013

J O B I M 2 0 1 3
French Conference on Biology, Computer Science and Mathematics

Toulouse, 1 – 4 July 2013

This is the first call for papers for JOBIM 2013.

The annual meeting of the French bioinformatics population, organized
via the SFBI, will hold its 14th edition in Toulouse (1st to 4th July
2013). This year this conference will also be the opportunity to invite
in a privileged manner colleagues from the Catalan region around

The necessary information for submissions and inscriptions can be found
on the conference website:


The last date for propositions to be submitted is the 18th March 2013.

Three categories of submissions are possible:
* original articles (8 to 10 pages), restricted to unpublished results
* extended abstracts(2 to 8 pages), corresponding to recent work under
submission or accepted elsewhere
* short summary (1 to 2 pages), corresponding to recent work or in
progress, already published or not.

The original articles and extended summaries will be selected based on
critical review by at least two members of the program committee and
will be published in the conference proceedings. They will be proposed
for oral presentation (and, if desired by the authors as poster
presentation). The short summaries are destined to be presented only as
As in previous editions, JOBIM will be structured around plenary
sessions as well as thematic parallel sessions so as to increase the
number of possibilities of participants to present their work orally and
to create an informal forum to encourage scientific discussion. The
choice of themes will be decided later on the basis of the selected
contributions. The existence of a parallel session will therefore be
conditioned by the number of quality submissions. If you want particular
themes to be the object of a session please send as many good
propositions as possible and don’t hesitate to encourage colleagues to
do likewise.

We particularly encourage PhD students and post-docs to use this
opportunity to present their work at JOBIM. Awards will be given to the
young scientists giving the best poster and oral presentations.

The themes covered by JOBIM include all the major aspects of
bioinformatics and will include fundamental methodology (mathematical
modeling, computing, statistical analysis and physical methodology), the
software tools and contributions describing specific applications and
ground-breaking research leading to new biological concepts. A
non-exhaustive listing of potential themes is as follows:

* genomics, comparative analysis, metagenomics
* evolution and phylogeny
* biodiversity, genetics and population genomics
* sequence analysis
* cartography and genome annotation
* systems biology and biological networks
* macromolecule structures
* proteomics
* gene expression and functional genomics
* NGS data analysis
* non-coding RNA
* epigenetics and epigenomics
* ontology databases
* data integration
* algorithmics and statistics for bioinformatics
