Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished work. At the time the paper is submitted to ECCB'14, and for the entire review period, the paper should not be under review by any other conference or scientific journal. Submissions will be generally reviewed by three members of the Program Committee.
Accepted original papers will be published as conference proceedings in a special online open-access issue of Bioinformatics (Oxford University Press). They will be citable as regular articles and indexed in Medline and ISI.
Presenters of accepted papers will be given a time slot in the conference schedule to provide a summary and update to their work. At least one author per each successful submission is required to register and present the paper at the conference.

Instructions for the authors
Manuscript (up to 7 pages) should be prepared according to the Oxford University Press Bioinformatics guidelines for original research papers. Word and LaTex templates can be downloaded from:

Online submission (PDF format) must be done through the conference EasyChair submission system.

Any question on the call for papers should be sent to

Please help spread the word for the strongest possible participation by sharing this mail with your colleagues and collaborators.

We look forward to welcoming you in Strasbourg in September
