    * System Evaluations and Benchmarking



We invite workshop papers (3000 words / 8 pages) and demonstrations.
Early Abstracts should be no more than 500 words. Manuscripts should
be focused around a specific challenge with a biomedical context where
they suggest a solution, demonstrate feasibility and possibly also a
meaningful evaluation.

Pre-submission enquiries and variations to the deadlines above may be
made in consultation with the Chris Baker bakerc at unb.ca

 * Author instructions can be obtained by sending an email to
bmcmutations at gmail.com an automated reply  will be sent and complete
submissions should be uploaded to

*Journal Special Issue*

A special issue in a biomedical scientific journal will be produced of
the best contributions to the Workshop Proceedings. Papers have to
address genuine themes relevant to the: Annotation, Interpretation and
Management of Mutations (see below)*
