The 5th Annual DREAM reverse engineering challenges, the 6th Annual RECOMB Satellite on Systems Biology, and the 7th Annual RECOMB Satellite on Regulatory Genomics will be held jointly at Columbia University on November 16-20, 2010. The meeting will start at 9am on Tuesday November 16, 2010, and run till 5pm on Saturday November 20, 2010 (November 16: DREAM5, November 17-18: Systems Biology, November 19-20: Regulatory Genomics).

The goal of the meeting is to bring together computational and experimental scientists in the area of regulatory genomics and systems biology, to discuss current research directions, latest findings, and establish new collaborations towards a systems-level understanding of gene regulation. The meeting consists of keynote presentations, oral presentations selected from submitted manuscripts and 1-page abstracts, and posters presentations also selected from submitted abstracts. More than 500 participants attended last year's meeting, the vast majority of whom attended all three meetings, and we expect a similar interest this year.

This year, we continue our exciting partnership with the Public Library of Science (PLoS) journals PLoS Computational Biology and PLoS ONE to publish full-length papers submitted to the conference. All submitted papers will be reviewed by our program committee, in partnership with the journal editors, and all accepted papers will appear in one of the two journals, based on scope and reviewer/editor recommendation. We invite you to take advantage of this unique opportunity by submitting a full-length paper by the submission deadline on July 7 via the Easy Chair system.

Conference Chairs:
Regulatory Genomics: Manolis Kellis (MIT), Ziv Bar-Joseph (CMU).
Systems/DREAM: Andrea Califano (Columbia), Gustavo Stolovitzky (IBM).
