CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS: 2013 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine, Dec 18-21, 2013, Shanghai, CHINA


http://bibm2013.tongji.edu.cn/

The Program Committees of the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine 
(IEEE BIBM 2013) invite proposals for Workshops.  Selected workshops will hold a central position 
within the larger Conference, which will bring together top academic and industrial researchers 
from all over the world to exchange cutting edge research ideas in bioinformatics and biomedicine.

Within these fields, workshops at BIBM form crucial focal points for emerging communities and 
forums for the examination of new ideas.

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 breadth of the Conference.  All papers accepted for workshops will be included in 
the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, made available at the 
Conference. 
        
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 broad, 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 for feedback. 

Important Dates 
June 10, 2013: Workshop proposal submission due: 
             a proposed workshop announcement is  sent by e-mail to any of the  Workshop Chairs
June 20, 2013: Notification to workshop proposers 
July  10, 2013: Each workshop organizer sends out Call for Workshops Papers
