BIOINFORMATICS - Genome, Proteome and Health in the Cyberspace Era
MedInfo'98: 9th World Congress on Medical Informatics to be held in Seoul, Korea, August 18-22, 1998.

MedInfo, the largest medical informatics conference to be organized, is taking place every three years. MedInfo'98, to be organized in Seoul, Korea, accepts six categories of contributions: papers, panels, experiences, workshops, tutorials, and demonstrations. Two types of papers will be considered for the Bioinformatics track, that will all be printed in the congress proceedings, published on the congress CD-ROM, and indexed in the MEDLINE database:

Scientific Papers - these papers represent original contributions to the science of medical/health informatics with a clear statement of objectives, methods and results.
Review Papers - these papers highlight the current state-of-the-art of health informatics, and present a thorough synthesis of key issues.
If you intend to contribute an article, please confirm this by e-mail to or by fax to Ron Appel +41 22 372 61 98. Specify whether you need a copy of the instructions to authors that we will be glad to send you.

General information
The Japanese Electrophoresis Society (JES) is pleased to announce that the meeting of the International Council of Electrophoresis Societies (ICES) '99, Electrophoresis '99, will be held in Tokyo, Japan, from May 25th to May 28th, 1999. It is our great honor to host Electrophoresis '99 on the occasion of cerebrating the 50th anniversary of the Japanese Electrophoresis Society. Most of the members of the Organizing Committee of Electrophoresis '99 had experience of hosting Electrophoresis '83 in Tokyo. It is our pleasure to call for papers, since May is also a good season in Japan for enjoying a trip. Paper will be accepted by on-line submission or by mail. Further information about Registration and Paper Submission will be soon available on this Home Page ( Abstracts of papers will be published in a supplementary issue of Japanese Journal of Electrophoresis. The Congress Proceedings will be published in an edited book after the meeting.
