Track: Modeling and Simulation for Biosciences and Bioinformatics
The goal of this special session is to explore the use of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) in the domain of assisting Bioscientists and Bioinformaticians as users/practitioners. The key focus of this session is on the client/user aspect of modeling and simulation paradigms and tools. Thus the track is geared more towards exploiting and bringing together innovations using M&S as assistive technologies for everyday tasks of Bioscientist practitioners (as users with limited Computational, Modeling and Simulation or programming skills). We welcome papers, not submitted elsewhere for review, with a focus on assisting practitioners in topics of interest ranging from but not limited to:
· Exploratory Bioinformatics and Computational Biological models, simulations and tools for helping Bioscientists
· Modeling and simulation as decision support for assisting Bioscientists and Medical practitioners
· Agent-based Modeling and simulation for Biological Systems, Healthcare facilities or Social Systems etc.
· Verification and Validation of Biological Simulations
· Equation based Modeling of Biological Systems
· Development and analysis of Complex Biological and Social Networks (Formal Specification, Modeling, Analysis and Simulation)
· Modeling and Simulation in System Biology
· Modeling and simulation of congenital disorders
· Modeling and simulation of epidemics and other diseases
· HIV/AIDS related M&S
· Tumor Growth modeling and Simulation
· Distributed Simulation of Biological Systems
· Formal Specification and Models such as using Z formal specification language, Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML) etc.
· Use of Cognitive Computation and AI techniques such as Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms, Bio-inspired techniques, swarm intelligence algorithms for developing models of Biological systems
· Modeling and Simulation of Body Sensor Networks for e-Health
· Modeling and Simulation of Pervasive and Ambient Assisted Living systems, Disease Tracking and Monitoring systems
· Artificial Life related topics

Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2011
Early Registration: June 15, 2011
Final Camera-Ready Submission: June 15, 2011
Authors' Guidelines (further information author’s instruction section)
Extended abstracts (minimum 2 pages), full draft papers or other proposals should be submitted for the review process through the submission section by May 20, 2011 (Extended)
The extended abstract or the full draft paper must contain title, authors, affiliations, addresses, main body and references.
Each extended abstract or full draft paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee taking into consideration scientific quality, originality and relevance. Only original papers, written in English will be accepted.
The extended abstract or the full draft paper should be prepared by following the final paper formatting. However any type of paper formatting can be accepted for the first submission.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Notification of acceptance will be sent by June 20, 2011.
CAMERA READY PAPER SUBMISSION
The International Program Committee will accept two types of camera ready papers: extended paper (10 pages, 2 columns); regular paper (6 pages, 2 columns) both for regular and special sessions.
The camera ready paper must adhere to the conference template. The .dot file contains the complete instructions for preparing a camera ready copy for the Proceedings. The final version of the paper must be a PDF file.
Your camera ready paper (extended paper or regular paper) in PDF format must be submitted by using the submission section before the July 20, 2011.
The page limit for manuscripts is ten (10) pages (included in the author registration fee). Additional pages will require an additional fee.
If your work must be cleared or approved before publication by your institution, company, or governmental agency, please be sure that process will be completed by the due date above or we will not be able to include it in the CD Conference Proceedings.
