INTRODUCTION
------------------

BIOKDD'18 invites KDD researchers to solve problems in Bioinformatics, Medical and Health Informatics. It is a half-day workshop embracing SIGKDD 2018's Data Science for Health day. BIOKDD has been successfully held in conjunction with SIGKDD for 16 years, and this year’s theme is Data Science Meets Biomedical Sciences and Health Informatics.


TOPICS OF INTEREST
------------------------
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Area 1: Knowledge Discovery from Clinical Data
* Extracting risk factors/symptoms of diseases form EHRs (electronic health records)
* Generating lexicons/vocabularies of diseases of interest
* Longitudinal analysis of temporal data in EHRs
* EHR content summarization
* Topic modeling of clinical text data
* Pharmacogenomics and adverse events mining from EHR data
* Multi-view learning of heterogeneous EHR data
* Decision support tools for big EHR data
* Visualization techniques to facilitate query and analysis of clinical data
* Mining medical images
* Privacy and security issues in mining genomic databases and HER

Area 2: Knowledge Discovery from Biological Data
* Structural bioinformatics
* Discovering biological networks and pathways underlying biological processes & 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
* Automated annotation of genes and proteins
* Discovery of structural variations from next-generation sequencing (NGS) data
* Discovery of genotype-phenotype associations
* Building predictive models for complex phenotypes
* Semantic web and ontology-driven data integration methods


IMPORTANT DATES
---------------------
Submission Due: May 8, 2018
Notification Date: June 8, 2018
Workshop Date: August 20, 2018


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
-----------------------------
We solicit 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 (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template) is recommended.

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

* Late-Breaking Research (*** new ***): 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: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=biokdd2018
