      SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

      This is a Call For Papers for publication in the Final Edition
      of the conference proceedings. All papers submitted in response
      to this announcement will be evaluated for publication in the
      Final Edition of the proceedings (publication date: late August
      2010; the Final Edition of the proceedings will be shipped to
      the registered authors of accepted papers after the conference).

      Prospective authors are invited to submit/upload their full papers
      in pdf or MS doc (about 7 pages, single spaced with the font size
      of 10 or 11) to the following web site:
      http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/
      Full papers will be considered for both, oral presentation and
      publication in the conference proceedings (as well as consideration
      for various journal special issues and book projects). Abstract
      submissions (one/two-page) will be considered for poster
      presentations and one/two-page publication in the proceedings.

      All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable. Authors of
      accepted papers will later be asked to follow a particular
      typing instructions to prepare their final paper for publication.

      Papers must not have been previously published or currently
      submitted for publication elsewhere. The first page of the paper
      should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal
      address, and email address for each author. Accepted papers
      will be published in the final edition of the BIOCOMP'10
      proceedings (in printed ISBN book form as well as online).

      Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
      originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness.
      In cases of contradictory recommendations, a member of the
      conference program committee will be charged to make the final
      decision (accept/reject) - often, this would involve seeking help
      from additional referees by using a double-blinded review process.
      In addition, all papers whose authors included a member of the
      conference program committee will be evaluated using the
      double-blinded review process.

      The BIOCOMP proceedings will be published and indexed in:
      Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology,
      DBLP / CS Bibliography, and others.
