Special Issue of the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics

A Special Issue with the results of the contest and a selection of
papers describing the best participating methods will be published on
the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
(TCBB). The contest participants will be invited to submit a full paper
by December 15, 2014, so having the time to analyze and discuss the
experience gained by the contest participation. The papers will undergo
a complete peer review process, so as to ensure that the quality of the
contributions is on par with the standards of the journal. The Special
Issue is expected to be published by June or July 2015.

Website is online

We are pleased to announce that the website of ICPR2014 Contest on Graph Matching Algorithms for Pattern Search in Biological Databases has been activated since the 28th of October.
