CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine, Oct 4-7, 2012, Philadelphia, PA, USA

The IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM) has established itself 
as the premier research 

conference in bioinformatics and biomedicine. IEEE BIBM 2012 provides a leading forum for 
disseminating the latest research 

in bioinformatics and health informatics. It brings together academic and industrial scientists 
from computer science, 

biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics and statistics. 

We solicit high-quality original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) in any 
aspect of bioinformatics 

and biomedicine. New computational techniques and methods in machine learning; data mining; text 
analysis; pattern 

recognition; knowledge representation; databases; data modeling; combinatorics; stochastic modeling;
string and graph 

algorithms; linguistic methods; robotics; constraint satisfaction; data visualization; parallel 
computation; data 

integration; modeling and simulation and heir application in life science domain are especially 
encouraged Relevant topics 

include but are not limited to:

1.    Genomics and Molecular Structure, Function and Evolution 
a.    Next-Gen Sequencing and Metagenomics
b.    Evolution, Phylogeny, Comparative  Genomics 
c.    SNPs and haplotype analysis, GWAS
d.    Protein/RNA Structure, Function and Interactions

2.    Computational Systems Biology
a.    Transcriptomics - Microarray Data Analysis 
b.    Gene Regulation, Alternative Splicing, Network/Pathway Analysis 
c.    Proteomics, PTMs, Metabolomics
d.    Epigenomics, non-coding RNA analysis, DNA methylation analysis

3.    Medical Informatics and Translational Bioinformatics 
a.    Biomedical Intelligence, Clinical Data Analysis, and Electronic Health Record
b.    Biomedical Signal/Image Analysis 
c.    Genome-Phenome Analysis 
d.    Biomarker Discovery 

4.    Cross-Cutting Computational Methods and Bioinformatics Infrastructure

b.    Health data acquisition, analysis and mining
c.    Healthcare information systems
d.    Clinical Decision Support and Informatics

The Industrial Track solicits papers describing implementations of Bioinformatics and Biomedicine 
solutions relevant to industrial settings. The focus of industry track is on papers that address 
the practical, applied, or pragmatic or new research challenge issues related to the use of 
bioinformatics and biomedicine technologies in industry. We accept full papers (up to 8 pages), 
extended abstracts (2-4 pages), as well as short abstracts (1 page, 500 words). 

    Journal special issues: IEEE BIBM has a tradition to publish selected papers as special issues
in highly respected journals. So far we have confirmed the special issues publications with 7 
journals: IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, IEEE Transactions on System, 
Men and Cybernetics, International Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics, BMC Bioinformatics, 
BMC Genomics, BMC Proteomics Science,  Proteomics, Journal of Network Modeling and Analysis in 
Health Informatics and Bioinformatics (In the past BIBM conference, the number of special issues 
is: BIBM 20118 special issue,  BIBM 20107 special issues, BIBM 20094 special issue; BIBM 20084 
special issues)  

    Student Travel Award: BIBM 2012 will offer as many as possible student travel awards to 
student authors (including post-doc)  (BIBM 201128 student travel award, BIBM 2010--22 student 
travel awards,  BIBM 200916 student travel awards )
