We would like to thank all those who submitted to this inaugural workshop. We had more than 30 submissions from many countries and have accepted 15 for presentation at the workshop. We encourage everyone to attend not only the workshop, but the entire VLDB conference. We have provided here the titles and authors of accepted papers.


We are honored to have as our guest speaker Dr. Simon Mercer, the Bioinformatics Program Manager for External Research & Programs in Microsoft Research.
Dr. Mercer has worked in biology obtainging a Ph.D in mammalian chromosomal evolution and has continued working in various aspects of bioinformatics over the years. Most recently he was Director of Bioinformatics and Strategic IT at the National Research Council of Canada's Institute for Marine Biosciences, with responsibility for the Canadian Bioinformatics Resource, a national network dedicated to bioinformatics research support. He then worked as Director of Software Engineering at Gene Codes Corporation, authors of the leading desktop DNA sequence assembly application and a forensic application used to identify the remains of the victims of the September 11th World Trade Center attacks.
Dr. Mercer's talk is entitled 'Bioinformatics at Microsoft Research'

We believe this will be a marvelous workshop and look forward to meeting all of you!

Mehmet M. Dalkilic, Sun Kim, and Jiong Yang
