Since BMC BIoinformatics is not going to publish meetings' proceedings anymore,
organizers are seeking an internationally peer-reviewed journal to publish a Supplement on BITS 2009.
Such issue would publish extended versions of best oral communications and posters as full papers.
To this end, a special Call for Papers, limited to authors of BITS 2009 accepted submissions,
should be issued shortly after the meeting.
