RECOMB 2014, 18th Annual International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology, one of the longstanding computational biology conferences has recently announced the accepted papers and the tentative program. RECOMB 2014 will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania April 2-5, 2014 and it is jointly hosted by Carnegie Mellon University and Univ. of Pittsburgh.
Keynote speakers of RECOMB 2014 include Ian T. Baldwin, Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology, Germany, Atul Butte, M.D., Ph.D., Stanford University School of Medicine, James Collins, Boston University and Wyss Institute, Harvard University, Trey Ideker, University of California, San Diego, Tom Mitchell, Carnegie Mellon University, and Sarah A. Tishkoff, U. Penn.
RECOMB 2014 has accepted 35 papers from a variety of topics including, Regulation and Epigenomics, Sequencing and Genotyping, and Population and Statistical Genetics. The accepted papers will be presented as talks at RECOMB. RECOMB 2014’s accepted papers have the option to be considered for PLOS Computational Biology or Journal of Computational Biology.

Note that RECOMB is also organizing RECOMB-seq, a satellite workshop that mainly focuses on high-throughput sequencing applications. RECOMB-seq also has a separate paper submission and program. The accepted papers from RECOMB-seq is not publicly announced yet.
