Call For Papers

DTMBIO 12 organisers are pleased to announce that the sixth DTMBIO
will be held in conjunction with CIKM, one of the largest data and
text mining conferences. While CIKM presents the state-of-the-art
research in informatics with the primary focus on data and text
mining, the main focus of DTMBIO is on biomedical and healthcare
informatics. DTMBIO delegates will bring forth interesting
applications of up-to-date informatics in the context of biomedical

Biological researchers face the current challenge of making effective
use of the enormous amount of electronic biomedical data in order to
better understand and explain complex biological systems. The
biomedical data repositories include data in a wide variety of forms,
including bibliographic information from electronic medical journals,
gene expression data from Microarray experiments, protein
identification and quantification data from proteomics experiments,
genomic sequences gathered by the Human Genome Project, and patient
healthcare records. The ability to automatically and effectively
extract, integrate, understand and make use of information embedded
in such heterogeneous - structured and unstructured - data remains a
challenging task.

We invite the submission of papers that propose ways to address the
variety of aspects involved in meeting this challenge.

Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

* Proposal and assessment of novel Text Mining (TM) evaluation
* Evaluation methods of biomedical applications, shared tasks
* Biomedical and Clinical text mining applications?
* Information extraction from biomedical and clinical corpora (full
texts, abstracts, EHRs, clinical trials, etc)
* Information retrieval from large biomedical data collections
* Gene sequence annotation
* Protein/RNA structure prediction
* Medical Ontologies and Text Mining
* Sequence and structural motifs
* Modelling of biochemical pathways and biological networks
* Image Mining in Medical and healthcare informatics
* Data and Text Mining solutions in biomedical informatics, for
applications such as drug development, system biology, biomedical
working processes
* Workflow modeling and analysis for drug development, system
biology, and?biomedical working processes
* Information integration for Data and Text Mining
* Mining multi-relational data

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers
that are not being considered for publication in any other forum.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, in PDF format and
formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates.

Full papers:?

Submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and
unpublished work. Full papers may consist of up to eight pages. Full
papers will be presented at the workshop.

Short papers:

DTMBIO 12 solicits short papers as well. Short paper submissions must
describe original and unpublished work. Short papers will be
presented at the workshop, and will be given four pages in the

All papers (in PDF format) should be submitted

Selected full papers will be invited for a special issue of BMC
Medical Informatics and Decision Making and International Journal of
Data Mining and Medical and Healthcare Informatics.
