Workshop September 18-20, 2007

Cancer biology is undergoing a revolution driven by the application of
high-throughput techniques such as genome sequencing, comparative
genomic hybridization, expression microarrays, miRNA profiling, and
mass spectrometry to tumor samples. These techniques give rise to large
collections of data that are impacting both basic cancer biology as well
as clinical applications. Cancer is disease of tremendous complexity,
and thus the analysis and interpretation of this data demands
sophisticated, specialized computational methods.

This workshop brings together leading researchers in the mathematical,
computational and life sciences to discuss cutting edge cancer
research. The emphasis of all contributed work will be on applying
statistical and algorithmic approaches to improve our understanding of
cancer and on the development of useful, effective and efficient new
methods in this area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
* Gene and protein expression data analysis in cancer
* Analysis of copy number variation
* Statistical genetics of cancer
* Biomarkers & cancer signatures
* Models of cancer progression or development
* The role of miRNA and small RNAs in cancer
* Inference of cancer networks e.g. signaling networks
* Integrative approaches to understanding cancer

Abstracts containing original and unpublished material will be
considered for oral presentation. Abstracts are limited to one
page and must be submitted electronically in PDF format via the EasyChair system
(on the conference website). To be considered for oral presentaion,
submissions must be received in electronic form by 11:59 p.m. PDT (San
Diego local time) on July 16, 2007. Abstracts for poster presentation
only will be accepted until August 17, 2007.

Selection of abstracts for oral and poster presentation will be made by
the program committee.
