Submissions

We invite workshop papers (3000 words / 8 pages) and demonstrations. Early Abstracts should be no more than 500 words. Manuscripts should be focused around a specific challenge with a biomedical context where
they suggest a solution, demonstrate feasibility and possibly also a meaningful evaluation.

Pre-submission enquiries and variations to the deadlines above may be made in consultation with the Chris Baker bakerc@unb.ca

* Author instructions can be obtained by sending an email to bmcmutations@gmail.com an automated reply will be sent and complete submissions should be uploaded to
Easychair:https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aimm2012

Journal Special Issue

A special issue in a biomedical scientific journal will be produced of the best contributions to the Workshop Proceedings. Papers have to address genuine themes relevant to the: Annotation, Interpretation and
Management of Mutations (see below)*

* Workshop Organizers / Special Issue Editors*

- Christopher J. O. Baker - University of New Brunswick, Canada
- Dietrich Rebholz-Schuhmann, European Bioinformatics Institute, UK
