Call For Papers

5th International Workshop on Biomolecular Network Analysis (IWBNA 2012)
in conjunction with
IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM 2012)

Systematic study of complex interactions between molecular components is a new paradigm for characterizing molecular functions and functional pathways in a genome-wide scale. Modeling and analysis of the inherent, dynamic, and structural behaviors of biomolecular networks from a topological perspective is a primary issue in current bioinformatics research. However, these tasks have been challenging because of the large scale and complex connectivity of the biomolecular networks, structured by high-throughput experimental data. Typical examples include protein interaction networks, gene regulatory networks, and metabolic networks. A wide-range of computational techniques, in particular, graph-theoretic approaches, might be applied for effective analysis of the large-scale, complex biomolecular networks. These studies will have a great potential for various biomedical applications.
The 5th International Workshop on Biomolecular Network Analysis (IWBNA) will be held in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM) at Philadelphia on October 4~7, 2012. This workshop aims to bring together researchers with expertise in bioinformatics, computational biology, systems biology and graph theory, and provide a forum to discuss state-of-the-art approaches for biological network analysis and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations.
Topics of interest include, but not limited to:
• Biomolecular network modeling
• Function prediction from biomolecular networks
• Signaling pathway identification
• Protein complex or functional module detection
• Protein and genetic interaction prediction
• Network motif analysis
• Network dynamics and evolution
• Graph data mining algorithms
• Querying and retrieval of interaction data
• Integration of genome, proteome and interactome data
• Semantic analysis of interactome data
• Application tools for biomolecular network analysis
