Call For Papers

on Computational Intelligence Applications in Bioinformatics
(CIAB Workshop) (
which will be organized with the 12th EANN/7th AIAI Joint Conferences on Engineering Applications of Neural Networks / Artificial Intelligence Applications and Innovations (EANN/AIAI 2011)
15-18 September 2011, Corfu, Greece

Computational Intelligence - a sub-branch of Artificial Intelligence - studies mostly nature inspired, adaptive mechanisms in order to enable or facilitate intelligent behavior in complex and changing environments. These mechanisms include these Artificial Intelligence paradigms that exhibit an ability to learn or adapt to new situations, to generalize, abstract, discover and associate. Usually the following paradigms are considered as part of Computational Intelligence: artificial neural networks, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, artificial immune systems, and fuzzy systems. Individual techniques from these Computational Intelligence paradigms, as well as combinations (hybrid methods) of these paradigms, have been applied successfully to solve a variety of real-world problems. Among them, special effort has been given to the fields of applied biology, bioinformatics and computational biology, due to their complicated nature.

Aim of the Workshop

The aim of this workshop is to serve as an interdisciplinary forum for bringing together specialists which use Computational Intelligence techniques to deal with real-world problems in theoretical and applied biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, chemical informatics, bioengineering and related fields. Issues related to the theory of Computational Intelligence techniques, as well as real-life applications in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology will be addressed to this workshop.

Topics of Interest
The Workshop on “Computational Intelligence Applications in Bioinformatics” welcomes paper submissions introducing and implementing Computational Intelligent techniques to address various applications in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. This workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners to address the important issues in computational intelligence for modeling and prediction.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Systems Biology
• Molecular Sequence Alignment and Analysis
• RNA and protein folding and structure prediction
• Protein-Protein interactions
• Biological Networks
• Biological Processes
• Biological and Medical Ontologies
• Computational Proteomics
• In-silico Optimization of Biological Systems
• High-Throughput Data Analysis (microarrays, mass spectrometry, EST, NGS etc.)
• Analysis of Large Biological Data Sets
• Medical Image Analysis and Pattern Recognition

Call for Papers
Authors are invited to submit electronically, in English-language, original and significant research contributions in the aforementioned areas. All submissions will be reviewed for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance by at least two reviewers. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email.

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard format of regular papers specified in AIAI conferences and should be restricted to a maximum of 8 pages. Detailed instructions for preparing the manuscript are provided at (IFIP series instructions): . Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and included in a CD that will be distributed to the participants of the workshop. Furthermore it will be investigated the possibility of publishing the presented research papers in an edited book, issued by some international publisher.

The authors should send their submissions in pdf format to:

Important Dates
Paper submission deadline: March 31, 2011
Notification of acceptance: April 20, 2011
Camera-ready copy: May 15, 2011
Workshop date: September 15-18, 2011 (The specific day will be finalized by the AIAI conference organizers)

Workshop Proceedings
The workshop proceedings will be included in CD and distributed separately from the main conference to the workshops participants.

The authors will be responsible for producing camera-ready copies of papers, conforming to the IFIP series formatting guidelines, for inclusion in the proceedings.

Note that at least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and attend the workshop in order to present the paper.
