The GCB 2014 Program Committee invites proposals for Satellite Workshops. The Workshops will be held on September 28 at Bielefeld University.

The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop, forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the papers, and guaranteeing a high quality worthy of the prestige and range of the Conference. Workshop papers will not be published in the GCB conference proceedings but may be published on other formats chosen by the workshop organizers.

Workshops should cover at least a single session (4-6 regular papers). The workshop organizers should ensure registration and presence of authors of accepted papers.

Workshop Topics

Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and initiatives in Bioinformatics. The workshops should provide an informal and vibrant forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results and practical development experiences in these two fields. Workshop topics may be highly specialized, e.g., graph techniques for biomedical networks.

Prospective workshop organizers are encouraged to contact the GCB program chairs and submit a workshop proposal until 30th of May, 2014. Please submit your proposal electronically to This email address is being protected from spambots.
