"I think the next century will be the
century of complexity."
Since 2002, new topics for CSB papers, posters, tutorials and
proceedings have been in a state of flux creating a Brownian-like ambiance
for the conference—continuous everywhere, but differentiable nowhere. This
situation should persist while the conference organizers believe in a
systems approach to analyzing and understanding the complexity of
Nevertheless, the goals of the CSB conference have been constant—to promote
a systems biology approach that links biology, computer science,
mathematics, chemistry, physics, medicine and engineering.
The CSB2004 features speakers on systems, proteins, gene and protein
networks, and numerical methods. In addition, there are new sessions on
Medical Informatics and High Performance Computing. Also two new special
interest groups (SIGs) in "Education in New Biology," and
"Standards for annotation files" are being created for CSB2004.
CSB's flagship conference is the annual international Computational Systems Bioinformatics conference held at
Stanford University, California, USA in mid August. The conference is totally dedicated to scientific exchange
and networking for leading researchers at the cutting edge of progress in bioinformatics and thus has no commercial
booths. Anyone interested in joining CSB, please contact us by email.
The Program in a nutshell: 4 Days: 10 tutorials, 30 scientific
presentations, 100 research posters, and two SIG events: Education and
The registration package includes all meals served in the pastoral setting of Dohrmann Grove at Stanford University
and a copy of the Proceedings in book format.

THANK YOU CSB2004 PARTICIPANTS!
"CSB would like to thank the organizing and program committees, the delegates, the presenters, and the sponsors for
the huge number of emails they sent in the last week confirming again that CSB2004 is one of the most prestigious
bioinformatics conferences. We have now reached our maximum number of participants, 600.
Certainly, the number of participants could be increased by running parallel sessions and asking delegates to spend extra days.
However, the CSB organizers, observing delegate wishes to keep a single track, will adhere to the 600 maximum. This will continue
to insure the hallmark of CSB conferences: high scientific level, good food in a pastoral setting, and the possibility of networking
with colleagues and CSB distinguished speakers."
