LIFE SCIENCES COMPUTING

Submission deadline: 1 December 2013
Publication: July/August 2014

"Life Sciences" refers to the study of life forms and their organization in fields such as biology, medicine, and ecology. These were considered to be separate fields from computing and traditional engineering, which rely on scientific principles to design and manufacture products. Today, this distinction is blurred as the life sciences become increasingly computer enabled and as engineering principles are applied to the study of life forms and the environment. Fields like genomics and computational biology apply engineering principles and practices, and biomedical engineers now create replacement parts for the human body using techniques such as 3D scanning and printing.

To highlight the progress in this emerging area at the intersection of computing and life sciences and examine opportunities and challenges it presents, IT Professional is soliciting submissions for its July/August 2014 issue on Life Sciences Computing, an area that has recently seen significant interest and rapid development. Submissions that focus on role of computing and IT in life sciences are sought; topics of interest include

Computational biology
Image and signal processing
Genomics and proteomics
Healthcare IT
3D-scanning and 3D-printing for biomedicine
Nanotechnology for biomedicine
Personalized medicine
Drug design and development
Next-generation sequence analysis
Data analytics in life sciences
Computational platforms and tools for life science research
Cloud computing services for life sciences
Case studies

Submissions
We also welcome multimedia features (related videos, demos, audio clips, and so on). Feature articles should be no longer than 4,200 words (with tables and figures each counting as 300 words) and have no more than 20 references. Illustrations are welcome.

For author guidelines, see http://www.computer.org/portal/web/peerreviewmagazines/acitpro.
