Call For Papers

The goal of BIOKDD 17 is to encourage KDD researchers to take on the numerous challenges that Bioinformatics offers. This year, the workshop will feature the theme of “Multiscale and Multimodal Analysis for Computational Biology”. This field focuses on the use of data mining and machine learning approaches for the analysis of the large amount of heterogeneous complex biological and medical data being generated. The direction of deep learning methods is particularly encouraged. The goal here is to build accurate predictive or descriptive models from these data enabling novel discoveries in basic biology and medicine.

We encourage papers that propose novel data mining techniques for areas including but not limited to :

Development of deep learning methods for biological and clinical data.

Building predictive models for complex phenotypes from large-scale biological data .

Discovering biological networks and pathways underlying biological processes and diseases .

Processing of new/next-generation sequencing (NGS) data for genome structural variation .

Analysis, discovery of biomarkers and mutations, and disease risk assessment .

Discovery of genotype-phenotype associations.

Novel methods and frameworks for mining and integrating big biological data .

Comparative genomics.

Metagenome analysis using sequencing data.

RNA-seq and microarray-based gene expression analysis.

Genome-wide analysis of non-coding RNAs.

Genome-wide regulatory motif discovery.

Structural bioinformatics.

Correlating NGS with proteomics data analysis.

Functional annotation of genes and proteins.

Cheminformatics.

Special biological data management techniques.

Information visualization techniques for biological data .

Semantic web and ontology-driven data integration methods .

Privacy and security issues in mining genomic databases .

Papers should be at most 9 pages long, single-spaced, in font size 10 or larger with one-inch margins on all sides. Camera-ready format papers may be referenced from previous BIOKDD conference proceedings.

Submission of accepted papers: For accepted workshop papers, we require that each camera-ready paper be formatted strictly according to the official ACM Proceedings Format. Please submit PDF file only. To prepare for the camera-ready PDF file submission, you may use either the Microsoft word template or the Latex files preparation instructions found at the ACM website.
