                    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.
