The main goal of the BIRD'08 workshops is to stimulate and facilitate an active exchange, interaction, and comparison of approaches, methods, and ideas about specific (both theoretical and applicative) topics in the general area of Bioinformatics. Workshops should be organized to facilitate informal discussion and active engagement among attendees. Members from all areas of the Bioinformatics community are invited to submit workshop proposals for review. Workshops on new emerging topics or specific relevant aspects of broader topics are particularly encouraged. Workshops can vary in length, but most will be one full day in duration. Workshop organizers and attendees must register for their workshop and are permitted to join the main BIRD conference. Requirements for Submissions To propose a workshop in BIRD'08, you will submit a complete workshop proposal containing the following information: * The title of the workshop; * A 1 page (max.) description of the technical issues that the workshop will address; * The statements: o How is the workshop relevant to, and complementary with, the main conference? o Why is the workshop of particular significance at this time? * The names, affiliations, postal address, phone and fax numbers, and e-mail addresses of the workshop organizers (It is expected that organizers will be recognized experts in the related fields, and the organizing committee should include individuals from multiple institutions); * A list of potential program committee members, including their affiliations; * The expected number of attendees (estimating minimum and maximum values); * Description of paper review process and acceptance standards; * A draft workshop call for papers; * The expected date and duration of the workshop; All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to the BIRD Conference Organisation Office (office at birdconf.org <mailto:office at="" birdconf.org="">), in plain ASCII text, no later than December 1, 2007 Proposers will be notified of the committee's decision no later than December 15, 2007 The selection of the workshops to be included in the final BIRD program will be based upon multiple factors, including: the scientific/technical interest of the topics, the quality of the proposal, balance and distinctness of workshop topics, and the capacity of the conference workshop program. Responsibilities of BIRD and of Workshop Organizers For all accepted proposals, BIRD will be responsible for: * Providing conference software for paper upload and review process (obligatory) * Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the workshop; * Providing electronic registration system * Together with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time; * Publication of the papers in the proceedings of BIRD'08. Workshop organizers will be responsible for the following: * Setting up a web site for the workshop; * Advertising the workshop and issuing a call for participation/papers; * Collecting and evaluating submissions using the BIRD conference software (mandatory), notifying authors of acceptance or rejection in due time, and ensuring a transparent and fair selection process. All workshop organizers are recommended to adopt the following deadlines for submissions and notifications of acceptance. o Submission of Full Papers: January 31, 2008 o Noification of Acceptance: March 15, 2008 o Camera-ready Copies: April 15, 2008 * Ensuring that the workshop organizers and the participants get registered to the workshop by registering to BIRD'08. * Accepted workshops are entitled to receive a small budget which is depending on the number of accepted and registered papers BIRD reserves the right to cancel any workshop if the above responsibilities are not fulfilled, or if too few attendees register for the workshop.

The main goal of the BIRD'08 workshops is to stimulate and facilitate an active exchange, interaction, and comparison of approaches, methods, and ideas about specific (both theoretical and applicative) topics in the general area of Bioinformatics. Workshops should be organized to facilitate informal discussion and active engagement among attendees. Members from all areas of the Bioinformatics community are invited to submit workshop proposals for review. Workshops on new emerging topics or specific relevant aspects of broader topics are particularly encouraged. Workshops can vary in length, but most will be one full day in duration. Workshop organizers and attendees must register for their workshop and are permitted to join the main BIRD conference. Requirements for Submissions To propose a workshop in BIRD'08, you will submit a complete workshop proposal containing the following information: * The title of the workshop; * A 1 page (max.) description of the technical issues that the workshop will address; * The statements: o How is the workshop relevant to, and complementary with, the main conference? o Why is the workshop of particular significance at this time? * The names, affiliations, postal address, phone and fax numbers, and e-mail addresses of the workshop organizers (It is expected that organizers will be recognized experts in the related fields, and the organizing committee should include individuals from multiple institutions); * A list of potential program committee members, including their affiliations; * The expected number of attendees (estimating minimum and maximum values); * Description of paper review process and acceptance standards; * A draft workshop call for papers; * The expected date and duration of the workshop; All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to the BIRD Conference Organisation Office (office at birdconf.org <mailto:office at="" birdconf.org="">), in plain ASCII text, no later than December 1, 2007 Proposers will be notified of the committee's decision no later than December 15, 2007 The selection of the workshops to be included in the final BIRD program will be based upon multiple factors, including: the scientific/technical interest of the topics, the quality of the proposal, balance and distinctness of workshop topics, and the capacity of the conference workshop program. Responsibilities of BIRD and of Workshop Organizers For all accepted proposals, BIRD will be responsible for: * Providing conference software for paper upload and review process (obligatory) * Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the workshop; * Providing electronic registration system * Together with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time; * Publication of the papers in the proceedings of BIRD'08. Workshop organizers will be responsible for the following: * Setting up a web site for the workshop; * Advertising the workshop and issuing a call for participation/papers; * Collecting and evaluating submissions using the BIRD conference software (mandatory), notifying authors of acceptance or rejection in due time, and ensuring a transparent and fair selection process. All workshop organizers are recommended to adopt the following deadlines for submissions and notifications of acceptance. o Submission of Full Papers: January 31, 2008 o Noification of Acceptance: March 15, 2008 o Camera-ready Copies: April 15, 2008 * Ensuring that the workshop organizers and the participants get registered to the workshop by registering to BIRD'08. * Accepted workshops are entitled to receive a small budget which is depending on the number of accepted and registered papers BIRD reserves the right to cancel any workshop if the above responsibilities are not fulfilled, or if too few attendees register for the workshop.
