10th Workshop on Constraint-Based Methods for Bioinformatics

Held in conjunction with the 20th International Conference on
Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming, CP'14

Lyon, France, 8th September 2014

Programme is now available on-line.


During the last years, Biology has become a source of challenging problems for the entire field of Computer Science in general, and for the areas of computational logic and constraint programming in particular. Successful approaches to these problems are likely to have significant applications in several fields of research, such as medicine, agriculture, industry, etc. Several successful applications of the Logic and Constraint Programming paradigms in Bioinformatics have been carried out in the last years, in the area of phylogenetic tree reconstruction, in haplotype inference, in proteins structure prediction, in RNA secondary structure prediction, and in system biology, just to cite a few. The workshop aims at exchanging ideas between researchers and collecting, if possible, new problems to be faced in the next future by our community.
