CALL FOR PAPERS: EEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine, Dec 18-21 2013, Shanghai, CHINA

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

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


INDUSTRIAL Track
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 10 journals: IEEE/ACM Transactions on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology,  IEEE 
Transactions on  System, Men and Cybernetics, IEEE Transactions on NanoBiosceince, International 
Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics, ,  Proteomics, BMC Genomics, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC 
Complementary and Alternative Medicine,  Journal of Network Modeling and Analysis in Health 
Informatics and Bioinformatics, Methods (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 2013 will offer as many as possible student travel awards to 
student authors (including post-doc)  (BIBM 2012  30 student travel award, BIBM 201128 student 
travel award, BIBM 2010--22 student travel awards,  BIBM 200916 student travel awards )
