Call For Papers


16th RECOMB Satellite Conference on Comparative Genomics, RECOMB-CG 2018

Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada - October 9-12, 2018


The annual RECOMB Comparative Genomics Satellite Conference (RECOMB-CG)
brings together leading researchers in the mathematical, computational and
life sciences to discuss cutting edge research in comparative genomics,
with an emphasis on computational approaches and the analysis of novel
experimental results. The program will include keynote talks, contributed
talks, and a poster session.

The 16th RECOMB-CG conference will be held at the Manoir des Sables,
in beautiful Magog-Orford, near Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada on October
9-12 2018. With this Call for Papers we invite high-quality original
full papers on topics related to the conference theme. The conference
will also have a poster session. A detailed call for posters will be
published later on the conference web page.


Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:
- genome evolution
- population genomics
- genome rearrangements
- genome variation, diversity and dynamics
- phylogenomics
- comparative tools for genome assembly
- comparison of functional networks
- gene identification and/or annotation
- cancer evolutionary genomics
- comparative epigenomics
- paleogenomics
- epidemiology


- Paper Submission Deadline: June 18, 2018
- Author Notification: July 20, 2018
- Final Version Due: August 3, 2018
- Conference: October 9-12, 2018


Submitted papers must have not been published or be currently under
consideration for publication in any other journal or conference with
formal proceedings. Each accepted paper has to be presented by one of
the authors at the conference.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings,
a volume in the Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series. In
addition, authors of selected papers will be invited, but not required,
to submit a significantly extended version of their papers to Algorithms
for Molecular Biology. Extended papers submitted will be handled by the
Program Committee co-chairs. Authors who choose to publish their extended
manuscripts will have to pay the journal’s publication fees.

Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts in PDF format according
to the LNBI series guidelines:

Submitted papers must be within 15 pages (in the LNBI format), with
optionally a clearly marked appendix containing supplementary material
made available to the reviewers.

All submissions must be made online, through the EasyChair submission
system, at the following address:

Authors need to register on that web site before submitting. A standard
PDF file must be received by midnight on June 18, 2018 (any time zone)
in order for a submission to be considered. Re-submission of already
submitted papers will be possible until midnight June 18, 2018 (any
time zone).
