CALL FOR PAPERS - Special Session on Soft Computing tools for Bioinformatics

at International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2009)
sponsored by SIG on Bioinformatics of the International Neural
Network Society (INNS)

Location: Westin PeachTree Hotel, Atlanta, Georgia, USA, June 14-19 2009
Conference Web Site: http://cnd.memphis.edu/ijcnn2009/
Special Session Web Site:

Description and Scope:
The body of information surrounding molecular and genomic experiments and
clinical investigations is rapidly growing as the magnitude and rate of
applications involving large-scale high-throughput technologies are
ever-increasing. Bioinformatic data mining efforts now range from more recent
methods including miRNA target identification and protein structure
prediction to classical methods such as ANN and RBFN classification of DNA
microarray gene expression data. Data fusion and integration are also gaining
considerable attention for merging signals, features, images, and text data
from multiple sensors together in order to understand influences of data
components on early detection and diagnosis of disease. Altogether,
bioinformatics has become a very promising multidisciplinary research area in
the life sciences because results provide new insights for interpretation and
establish new leads for deeper understanding. Each year there are numerous
Soft Computing and Machine Learning algorithms introduced providing new
examples of application in related fields (clustering, feature selection,
text mining, signal and image processing, data visualization, etc.). This
session will take stock in new soft computing methods for bioinformatic data
mining in general, and Neural Network methods in particular.

Topics:
We welcome papers which present novel algorithms or refined classical
methods for the analysis of high dimensional bioinformatic data sets. The
target problems include but are not limited to:
* Data integration and fusion
* Ensemble techniques
* Biological sequence identification
* DNA/CGH/SNP/miRNA arrays
* Gene regulatory and ontology networks
* Protein-protein, protein-small molecule interactions
* Protein structure prediction
* Cellular metabolism and signaling
* Pharmacogenomics and pharmacodynamics
* Metabolic pathways
* Signal processing
* Unsupervised and supervised classification
* Imaging/data visualization
* Text mining methods
* Biomarker selection
