CFP: 19th International Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics (with SIGKDD'20)
BIOKDD 2020 in Conjunction with SIGKDD 2020

San Diego, CA - USA
August 24, 2020

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.

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.

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

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Research that battles COVID-19
* Bioimage analysis, single-cell analysis
* Biological network visualization
* Information visualization and visual analytics for biomedical data
* 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 20, 2020
Notification Date: June 15, 2020
Workshop Date: August 24, 2020

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 ( 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:

Program Co-Chairs:
* Da Yan (University of Alabama at Birmingham)
* Hong Qin (University of Tennessee at Chattanooga)
* Hsiang-Yun Wu (TU Wien)

General Chair
* Jake Chen (University of Alabama at Birmingham)

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