A limited number of articles (research articles, opinions, reviews, short communications) will be published in a special issue of the journal Infection, Genetics and Evolution (Elsevier). Every participant to the conference is encouraged to submit a paper (usual format following the rules of the journal). These papers will be evaluated by a standard peer-review process involving at least two anonymous referees. The submissions will be done on a special heading of the journal website dedicated to the conference (deadline, June 15th 2013).

Call for papers
We are happy to invite you to participate in the Systems Biology Approach to Infectious Processes Conference (SBIP 2013). This conference is part of a series of conferences on Mathematical Biology that will be held in Lyon between March and June 2013.
The conference aims at bringing together leading specialists addressing different facets of infectious processes from a systems and modeling perspective. This includes microbial ‘omic’ approaches in relation to infection, analysis of immune response, evolution of pathogens and epidemiology. On each of these broad topics, the conference will bring together experimentalists and modelers attempting to characterize system-wide properties of infectious processes that might be put at use for disease control.
In addition to keynote lectures by invited speakers, the conference program will leave ample space for contributed talks and posters for which proposals are welcome. Please use the on-line system to submit a one-page abstract by March 15, 2013, indicating your choice of the relevant session, when suitable (Microbiolomics, Immune Response, Evolution of Pathogens or Epidemiology).
Registration is free but mandatory. If you submit an abstract, don't forget to register as well. To register and to submit an abstract, you will have to create a sciencesconf.org account by filling the on-line registration and submission forms.
We look forward to welcoming you in Lyon for SBIP 2013!
