Call For Papers

2012 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (IEEE BIBM 2012)

http://www.cis.drexel.edu/faculty/thu/bibm/index.php.htm

Philadelphia, USA October4-7, 2012

The IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM) has established itself as the premier research conference in bioinformatics and biomedicine. IEEE BIBM 2012 provides a leading forum for disseminating the latest research in bioinformatics and health informatics. It brings together academic and industrial scientists from computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics and statistics.

We solicit high-quality original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) in any aspect of bioinformatics, biomedicine and healthcare informatics. New computational techniques and methods in machine learning; data mining; text analysis; pattern recognition; knowledge representation; databases; data modeling; combinatorics; stochastic modeling; string and graph algorithms; linguistic methods; robotics; constraint satisfaction; data visualization; parallel computation; data integration; modeling and simulation and their application in life science domain are especially encouraged Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

1. Genomics and Molecular Structure, Function and Evolution

a. Next-Gen Sequencing and Metagenomics
b. Evolution, Phylogeny, Comparative Genomics
c. SNPs and haplotype analysis, GWAS
d. Protein/RNA Structure, Function and Interactions

2. Computational Systems Biology

a. Transcriptomics - Microarray Data Analysis
b. Gene Regulation, Alternative Splicing, Network/Pathway Analysis
c. Proteomics, PTMs, Metabolomics
d. Epigenomics, non-coding RNA analysis, DNA methylation analysis

3. Medical Informatics and Translational Bioinformatics

b. Health data acquisition, analysis and mining
c. Healthcare information systems
d. Clinical Decision Support and Informatics

INDUSTRIAL Track

The Industrial Track solicits papers describing implementations of Bioinformatics , Biomedicine and healthcare informatics solutions relevant to industrial settings. The focus of industry track is on papers that address the practical, applied, or pragmatic or new research challenge issues related to the use of bioinformatics and biomedicine technologies in industry.

· Journal special issues: IEEE BIBM has a tradition to publish selected papers as special issues in highly respected journals. So far we have confirmed the special issues publications with 7 journals: IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, IEEE Transactions on System, Men and Cybernetics, International Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Proteomics, BMC Genomics, BMC Proteomics Science, Proteomics, Journal of Network Modeling and Analysis in Health Informatics and Bioinformatics (In the past BIBM conference, the number of special issues is: BIBM 2011—8 special issue, BIBM 2010—7 special issues, BIBM 2009—4 special issue; BIBM 2008—4 special issues)

· Student Travel Award: BIBM 2012 will offer as many as possible student travel awards to student authors (including post-doc) (BIBM 2011—28 student travel award, BIBM 2010--22 student travel awards, BIBM 2009—16 student travel awards )

· Panel on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine Research Challenges and Opportunities led by top researchers and program managers from NSF and NIH
