Evolving Gene Regulatory Networks
World Congress on Computational Intelligence, June 1-6, 2008, Hong Kong
Motivation and Scope
Gene regulatory networks play a central role in the evolution and development of biological systems. Any evolutionary
change in neural and morphological features depends on the reorganization of the gene regulatory network. In recent years,
increasing attention has been paid to a systems-level understanding of the structure and functionality of gene regulatory networks
in the field of computational systems biology aiming at evolutionary reconstruction of regulation networks based on biological
data and evolving in silico regulatory networks producing complex dynamics from commonly found regulatory motifs.
This special session attempts to promote a stronger interdisciplinary integration of expertise from researchers with different backgrounds. Topics include but are not limited to:
All papers must be submitted through the
WCCI 2008 submission website,
where the Instructions for Authors are also available. Please choose "CEC
2008" for "Conference", choose "Special" in "Session mode", and then choose "Evolving Gene
Regulatory Networks (Organizers: Yaochu Jin)"
The maximum paper length is 8 pages including all figures, tables,
graphs and bibliography entries (The conference organizers most recently changed its policy
regarding page limit. Sorry for any confusion).
All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings.
Submission deadline: December 1, 2007 (Extended to Dec. 14, 2007)
Acceptance notification: February 1, 2008
