Research in DNA computing and molecular programming draws together mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, and nanotechnology to address the analysis, design, and synthesis of information-based molecular systems. This annual meeting is the premiere forum where scientists with diverse backgrounds come together with the common purpose of using interdisciplinary approaches to advance molecular computation. Continuing this tradition, the 23rd International Conference on DNA Computing and Molecular Programming (DNA23), under the auspices of the International Society for Nanoscale Science, Computation, and Engineering (ISNSCE), will focus on the most recent experimental and theoretical results that promise the greatest impact. In addition, this conference will have special sessions on how to advance nanotechnology education, and how learning about DNA computing can provide students with deeper insights in multiple disciplines.
Call for paper
Topics of submission
Authors submitting a paper and/or proposal for a presentation may choose between two submission tracks. Submissions for oral presentations can be submitted to one of the two tracks (A) or (B).
Track A – Full Paper: For authors who want their full papers to be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) conference proceedings. Submissions (a single .pdf file) should conform to the following guidelines:
- The main contents of the paper should appear in the first 12 pages of the pdf. An optional technical appendix is permitted if the authors deem it necessary to back up the claims made in the first 12 pages. However, at the program committee’s discretion, this appendix may or may not be read as part of the reviewing process.
- The paper is formatted in LaTeX using the LNCS style. Please follow the formatting instructions at: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
- Each paper contains an abstract which briefly describes the primary results and their importance.
- Selected papers will be published in the proceedings, available at the conference and as part of the LNCS series. Submissions to Track A may not be previously published or simultaneously submitted to another conference or journal for publication.
Track B – One page abstract with accompanying material: Primarily for authors submitting experimental results who plan to submit to a journal rather than publish in the conference proceedings. (Abstracts for work recently submitted to or published in a journal will also be considered.) To be considered for oral presentation submissions should conform to the following guidelines: A single .pdf file containing
- A one-page abstract: The total length of the abstract should not exceed 1 page (11 point type, single spaced, 1 inch margins). The one-page abstract must describe the primary results and their importance.
- Accompanied documentation: Authors must attach to the abstract a preliminary manuscript, a thesis chapter or some other form of supporting documentation that can be used by the program committee to evaluate the merit of the work for oral presentation. Only the one-page abstract will appear in the supplementary proceedings at the conference. Track B papers unaccompanied by adequate documentation will not be eligible for oral presentation.
Track C – Poster and breaking news short talk: For authors interested in presenting their work in the poster session and possibly also a giving a short oral presentation. All submissions should conform to the following guidelines:
- A one-page abstract: The total length of the abstract should not exceed 1 page (11 point type, single spaced, 1 inch margins). The one-page abstract should describe the primary results and their importance. A summary figure illustrating the results is encouraged.
- A limited number of submissions accepted for Track C will also be selected for a short oral presentation. Authors interested in also giving a short oral presentation are strongly encouraged to additionally provide supporting documentation. The form of the supporting documentation should be a preliminary manuscript, a thesis chapter or some other documentation that can be used by the program committee to evaluate the merit of the work for a short oral presentation. Only the one-page abstract will appear in the conference abstract booklet at the conference.
