CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS: Bioinformatics and Biomedicine, November 12-15 2011, USA

Atlanta, USA

The Program Committees of 2011 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine 
(IEEE BIBM 2011) invite proposals for Workshops.  The Workshops will be held within the Conference,
November 12-15 2011, Atlanta, USA
The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop, forming the program 
committees, reviewing and selecting the papers, and guaranteeing a high quality worthy of the 
prestige and range of the Conference.  All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the 
Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available at the 
The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing selected papers (after their 
expansion and revision) into books or special journal issues.  Workshops should cover at least a
single session (6 regular papers). The workshop organizers should ensure registration and presence
of   authors of accepted papers. 
Workshop Topics  
Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and initiatives in Bioinformatics and 
Biomedicine.  The workshops should provide an informal and vibrant forum for researchers and 
industry practitioners to share their research results and practical development experiences in 
these two fields.  Workshop topics may be narrow, e.g., reverse-engineering of  gene regulatory 
networks from experimental data, computational approaches to drug discovery, mathematical modeling 
of signaling pathways, analysis of the next-generation sequencing data, oscillations and synchronization of biological rhythms; or wide, e.g., computational proteomics, in-silico diagnosis and prognosis, data mining and machine learning algorithms for biomedical applications, application of network research to biology etc.  Prospective workshop organizers are encouraged to contact workshop chairs. 
Important Dates 
 June 5, 2011: Workshop proposal submission due: 
             a proposed workshop announcement is  sent by e-mail to any of the  Workshop Chairs
June 15, 2011: Notification to workshop proposers 
June  30, 2010: Each workshop organizer sends out Call for Workshops Papers 

Guidelines for Workshop Proposals 

Proposals for 2011 IEEE BIBM Workshops should contain the following components.          
1. Workshop Title (e.g., mathematical modeling of signaling pathways)
2. Introduction to workshop (a few sentences about the background, importance, purpose, interests, etc. of workshop)
3. Research topics included in the workshop (list a number of interesting topics or areas covered by workshop)
4. Important dates (Please do not change this part)
September 12, 2011: Due date for full workshop papers submission (at least two reviews for each paper) 
October 1, 2011: Notification of paper acceptance to authors 
October 15, 2010: Camera-ready of accepted papers 
November 12-15: Workshops 

5. Program Chairs or co-chairs: (1-3 experts in the research areas of workshop) 

6. Program Committee Members: (at least 5 experts in the research areas)

7. Invited keynote speakers (optional)

The BIBM 2011 conference will offer a honorarium check of US0 to half-day workshop organzors 
and US00 to whole-day workshop organizors. We look forward to your supports in making 2011 BIBM
workshops an exciting event.
