                    SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

      Workshop on Constraint Based Methods for Bioinformatics

                         October 5st, 2005,
            Melia Sitges Hotel, Sitges (Barcelona) Spain



Bioinformatics is a challenging research area where every major
contribution can have significant impact on medicine,
agriculture, and industry. Among the various problems tackled in
this area are those related to the recognition, analysis, and
organization of DNA sequences, those related to the structure of
macromolecules (like the prediction of the spatial form of a
polymer, given the sequence of monomers constituting it, or the
detection of common RNA sequence/structure motifs), and those
related to biological systems simulations (for metabolic or
regulatory networks) and those related to . All these problems
can be naturally formalized using constraints over finite domains
or intervals of reals. Moreover, Biological systems simulations
can be easily designed using concurrent constraint programming.

The main aim of this workshop is to share recent results in this
area (new constraint solvers, new prediction programs) and to
present new challenging problems that can be addressed using
constraint-based methods.
