18th Annual International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
April 2-5, 2014

RECOMB 2014 was jointly hosted by Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. The conference aimed to bridge the computational, mathematical, statistical, and biological sciences. The conference featured keynote talks by preeminent scientists in life sciences, proceeding presentations of peer-reviewed research papers in computational biology, and poster sessions on the latest research progress. As usual, authors of accepted papers were invited to submit an edited version of the manuscript to the Journal of Computational Biology for the publication of a special issue.

RECOMB 2014 was combined with the RECOMB-Seq satellite workshop, held March 31-April 1, 2014 and the RECOMB-BE satellite workshop, held April 1, 2014. Sequencing related research papers rejected from the RECOMB, may be resubmitted to RECOMB-Seq on an expedited review timeline. Please visit the RECOMB-Seq website for detailed information.

The conference proceedings (Lecture Notes in Computer Science Volume 8394, 2014) are now online. Attendees will receive printed and electronic copies of the proceedings.
