Genome Informatics Workshop (GIW) is the longest running international bioinformatics conference in the world. The scope includes all works that are ultimately devoted to the computational understanding of biological systems on the molecular basis and the aims are to present recent results of both theoretical and practical research, to demonstrate biological systems, and to show new applications and directions of future research. The first GIW was held at Tokyo in 1990. Since then, GIW has been held annually around the countries in Asia-Pacific region. This year's GIW is the 23rd anniversary and will be held at Tainan in Taiwan. The purpose of GIW2012 is to provide an international forum for scientists and researchers to exchange ideas and approaches.

National Cheng Kung University and Taiwan Society for Bioinformatics and Systems Biology(TBSB) are honored to host the GIW2012. We are delighted to give you a warm welcome to Tainan in Taiwan.
