  4. The 7th Symposium of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology in Taiwan (BIT2009)
    Date: 8-9 October, National Yang-Ming University
    Homepage: http://rsc.binfo.org.tw/bit2009/

    The Symposium of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology in Taiwan (BIT) was initiated by National Yang-Ming University in 2003. Last year the conference was held jointly with the International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB), which is the official conference of the Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet).

    This meeting provides a platform for researchers in Taiwan to interact with foreign and domestic experts in the fields of bioinformatics and systems biology. We hope to set up a stage for attracting scientists not only to increase their exposure to cutting edge technological and scientific advances but also for multilateral collaborations.

    For BIT 2009, a selected number of posters will be chosen for oral presentation in the form of short talks during a special session of the conference program. Posters reporting on the latest research in all areas of bioinformtics and systems biology are sought. Typical but not exclusive topics of interest include:
    * Molecular sequence analysis
    * Recognition of genes and regulatory elements
    * Molecular evolution
    * Gene expression
    * Biological networks
    * Genomics
    * Population genetics
    * Systems biology
    * Computational proteomics
    * Molecular structural biology

    Poster abstracts are limited to 2 pages, including title, figures, tables, text, and references. Please see below for the formatting templates that must be used for submitted poster abstracts. Submit abstracts to BIT2009 through the EasyChair conference system.

  6. The 14th Asia Pacific Management Conference
    Start: 11/18/2009 - 00:00
    End: 11/20/2009 - 23:59
    Timezone: Etc/GMT+8
    From http://www.fe.unair.ac.id/apmc14/

    Following a number of conferences held in USA, Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, and Australia, the Fourteenth Asia Pacific Management Conference (APMC), will be held by Department of Management, Faculty of Economics, Airlangga University, on 18, 19, and 20 November 2009. Research contributions addressing any aspects of Managing Complexities in the Asia Pacific Region are welcome.

    Among others, Asia Pacific region enjoys enormous economic growth and development. Recent reports also indicate that the region occupies bigger share in the global market. On the other hand, the region is known for highly diverse cultures, various political conditions, and asymmetric level of economic growths. These paradoxical facts – complexities - offer opportunities and managerial challenges for business players how to manage their businesses in this region. Therefore, the main question proposed here is how companies can manage the complexities of their businesses in the Asia Pacific region?

    The research seminar is a joint undertaking between the Department of Management, Faculty of Economics, Airlangga University (Indonesia) and National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan). The Conference is intended to bring together researchers engaged in Management, Economics and related fields from Asia Pacific, Europe, and other parts of the World. Ph.D. students are also strongly encouraged to submit proposals for papers.
    From http://www.imba.ncku.edu.tw/ann/?p=299 :

    The 14th Asia Pacific Management Conference (the Conference), organized by the Airlangga University, Indonesia, in collaboration with the National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan), will be held on November 18 – 20, 2009 at the Airlangga University, Surabaya, Indonesia. The aim of the Conference is to provide a forum for academics and professionals to share experiences and knowledge for managing competitiveness in the knowledge economy. Paper presented at the conference may be considered for publication in Asia Pacific Management Review (APMR) journal after a preliminary review of the Conference members and follow an official blind review process.
