CFP: 18th International Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics (with SIGKDD'19)
BIOKDD 2019 in Conjunction with SIGKDD 2019

Anchorage, Alaska - USA
August 5, 2019

BIOKDD'19 invites KDD researchers to solve problems in Bioinformatics, Medical and Health Informatics. It is a half-day workshop embracing SIGKDD 2019's Health Day. BIOKDD has been successfully held in conjunction with SIGKDD for 17 years, and this year's theme is Data Science Meets Bioinformatics.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Development of deep learning methods for biological and clinical data
* Novel methods and frameworks for mining and integrating big biological data
* Discovering biological networks and pathways underlying biological processes and diseases
* Analysis, discovery of biomarkers and mutations, and disease risk assessment
* Comparative genomics
* Metagenome analysis using sequencing data
* RNA-seq and microarray-based gene expression analysis
* Genome-wide analysis of non-coding RNAs
* Genome-wide regulatory motif discovery
* Structural bioinformatics
* Automated annotation of genes and proteins
* Discovery of structural variations from next-generation sequencing (NGS) data
* Correlating NGS with proteomics data analysis
* Discovery of genotype-phenotype associations
* Building predictive models for complex phenotypes
* Functional annotation of genes and proteins
* Cheminformatics
* Special biological data management techniques
* Privacy and security issues in mining genomic databases
* Information visualization and visual analytics for biomedical data
* Predictive modeling for personalized treatment
* Semantic web and ontology-driven data integration methods
* Text mining for biomedical literature and clinical notes
* Information retrieval for healthcare and Biomedical applications
* Biomedical signal analysis and processing
* Intelligent medical data management
* Collaboration technologies for biomedicine
* Social networks for biomedicine

Submission Due: May 5, 2019
Notification Date: June 1, 2019
Workshop Date: August 5, 2019

We solicit the submission of papers in the following three categories:

* Regular: original papers without duplicate submission, with quality ones invited to publish in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB). Papers should be at most 10 pages in length, and using ACM Proceedings Format ( is recommended.

* Abstract: 1-page limit, for introducing preliminary research outcomes, with emphasis research effectiveness on real-world datasets.

* Late-Breaking Research: submission of a published manuscript (at least in arXiv) along with additional supplemental/unpublished data, to highlight the work’s impact.

All papers will be peer-reviewed. If accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to present their work. The papers should be in PDF format and submitted via EasyChair:

Program Co-Chairs:
* Da Yan (The University of Alabama at Birmingham)
* Sharma Thankachan (University of Central Florida)

General Chairs
* Jake Chen (The University of Alabama at Birmingham)

Steering Committee
* Mohammed J. Zaki (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)
