Workshop on Constraint Based Methods for Bioinformatics

associated with ICLP


Bioinformatics is a challenging and fast growing area of research, which is of utmost importance for our understanding of life. Major contributions to this discipline can have thousands of positive effects in medicine, agriculture, or industry.

The main aim of this workshop is twofold. On the one hand, to share recent results in this area (new ideas and/or systems, relying on constraints, but also on linear programming, Mixed Integer Linear Programming, Local Search, and any other AI techniques, possibly combining some of them). On the other hand, to present new challenging problems recently formalized but still far from admitting an acceptable solutions.
