Present CFP : 2010

Life Sciences applications typically involve large volumes of data of various kinds and a multiplicity of software tools for managing, analysing and interpreting them. There are many challenging problems in the processing of life sciences data that require effective support by novel theories, methods and technologies. Conceptual modelling is the key for developing high-performance information systems that put these theories, methods and technologies into practice. The fast growing interest in life sciences applications calls for special attention on resource integration and collaborative efforts in information systems development.

The primary objective of the workshop is to share research experiences in conceptual modelling for applications in life sciences and to identify new issues and directions for future research in relevant areas, including bioinformatics, health informatics, medical and veterinary informatics. The workshop invites authors to submit original papers exploring the usage of conceptual modelling ideas and techniques for developing and improving life sciences databases and information systems.

Topics of Interest

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to (as long as they are related to new research approaches in the intersection of conceptual modelling and life sciences):

* Conceptual modelling for biological and laboratory information systems;
* Conceptual modelling for analysis tools in bioinformatics;
* Conceptual modelling for health information systems;
* Conceptual modelling for medical and veterinary information systems;
* Life sciences databases, data exchange and data distribution;
* Data representation and visualisation;
* Life sciences ontologies and taxonomies;
* Data, process and application integration in life sciences;
* Data warehousing and data mining;
* Privacy and security in life sciences applications;
* Electronic health records;
* Reuse and reengineering of life sciences applications; and
* Collaborative and open source software development in life sciences.

Paper Submission

Formatting Guidelines

CMLSA 2010 proceedings will be part of the ER 2010 Workshop volume published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Thus, authors must submit manuscripts using the Springer-Verlag LNCS style for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Refer to for style files and details. Papers in the final proceedings are strictly limited to 10 pages. Therefore, submitted papers should also not exceed 10 pages, but technical appendices, e.g. containing proofs, can be added to a submission.
Papers must be in English, formatted in LNCS style and submitted as PDF-files. Submitted papers must be original and not submitted or accepted for publication in any other workshop, conference, or journal.

Submission Guidelines

Submission to CMLSA 2010 will be electronically only. Authors are asked to create a submission system account first. Subsequently, this account can be used to submit one or more abstracts and upload corresponding papers.

* The online submission system will be available from March 1, 2010.
