Since our ?rstCompLife symposiumlast year,wehaveseenthe predicted trends inthelifeandcomputerscienceareascontinuewithever-increasingproductionof high-quality data mated to novel analysis methods. The integration of the most advanced computationalmethods into experimentaldesign and in particularthe validation of these methods will remain a challenge.However,there is increasing appreciation between the di?erent scienti?c communities in computer science and biology that each has substantial goals in common and much to gain by collaboration on complex problems. Providing a forum for an open and lively exchangebetweencomputerscientists,biologists,andchemistsremainsourgoal. Toencouragepreciselythistypeofexchange,crossingthebordersofthesciences, we organized the First Symposium on Computational Life Science in Konstanz, Germany in September 2005 (the proceedings were published in this series as LNBI3695).Duetothesuccessofthesymposium,especiallyinbringingtogether scientists with diversebackgrounds,a secondsymposium was held in Cambridge (September 27-29, 2006). The conference program shows that the scienti?c mix worked out very well again. We received higher quality submissions (56 this time) and selected 23 for oral presentation. As a supplement to the normal conference program we arranged for a “Free Software Session,” where a dozen open source tools and toolkits were presented. Due to the nature of such software projects it seemed inappropriate to cover them in printed form but the conference Web site will continue to link to the respective pages (www.complife.org). Adding this session to the symposium also educated attendees on how to use some of the methods presented and shed some light on the wealth of free tools available already.
