BIOKDD 2020 in Conjunction with SIGKDD 2020

San Diego, CA - USA
August 24, 2020
http://home.biokdd.org/biokdd20/


INTRODUCTION
----------------
BIOKDD'20 invites KDD researchers to solve problems in Bioinformatics, Medical and Health Informatics. It is a full-day workshop embracing SIGKDD 2020's Health Day. BIOKDD has been successfully held in conjunction with SIGKDD for 18 years, and this year's encouraged theme is Battling COVID-19.

We will have a series of invited talks by world-renowned experts on their recent and on-going COVID-19 research. We will also invite healthcare professionals fighting at the front line of COVID-19 pandemic from countries that succeed at flattening the curve (such as China and South Korea) to share their experience.


COVID-19 RESPONDING
------------------------
Given the uncertainty caused by COVID-19 outbreak, we will work with SIGKDD'20 organizers to investigate feasible options such as a virtual workshop, or a mix of virtual and in-person workshop. We will ensure the quality of digital workshop experience.


PUBLICATION OPTION
-----------------------
As a tradition of BIOKDD, accepted original submissions will be invited to publish in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB).

IMPORTANT DATES
--------------------
Submission Due: May 20, 2020
Notification Date: June 15, 2020
Workshop Date: August 24, 2020


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
--------------------------
We solicit submission of papers in the following three categories:

* Regular: original papers without duplicate submission. Papers should be at most 10 pages in length, and using ACM Proceedings Format (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template) 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* Late-Breaking Research: submission of a published manuscript (at least in arXiv) along with additional supplemental/unpublished data, to highlight the work's impact.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 (with a virtual option) to present their work. The papers should be in PDF format and submitted via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=biokdd20200
