CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE Workshop on Nanoinformatics for Biomedicine, December 18-21, 2013, Shanghai, CHINA

NanoInfo 2013 - In conjunction with BIBM 2013

Submission link:

 The application of nanotechnology in biomedicine offers innovative approaches to disease 
diagnosis, treatment and prevention. During this process, nanoinformatics has emerged as a 
discipline that provides informational foundations for nanomedicine. To address the information 
needs of nanomedicine, nanoinformatics is playing an important role in acquiring relevant data 
and information, conceptually organizing information for conversion to knowledge, and developing 
computing applications that are based on important parameters at the nanoscale and are applicable 
in a broad health perspective.

 This workshop aims to continue the success of last year’s Workshop (NanoInfo 2012) and provide 
a forum for discussion on all the aspects of nanoinformatics to support biomedical research and 
advance knowledge on nanomaterial-biological interactions. The organizers are inviting participants
to submit papers with particular emphasis on, but not limited to: data collection and/or curation, 
interoperability among different data sources, ethical and social barriers to data sharing, 
computational or information technologies to solve specific problems, integrative physiological 
programs, and translational research.

 All accepted papers will be published in proceedings by IEEE. Selected papers will be invited 
for publication in special issues of related journals (e.g., International Journal of Nanomedicine).

 Research topics include (but are not limited to):
• Computational biology/chemistry/medicine
• Computational toxicology
• Databases and repositories
• Data standards and Interoperability
• Data mining and knowledge discovery
• Modeling and simulation
• Nanomaterial-biological interactions
• Nanomedicine
• Text and literature mining
• Translational research
• Risk assessment and regulation
• Surveillance systems
• Ethical and social issues
• Others

 Important dates:

 Oct 5, 2013: Due date for full workshop papers submission
 Nov 1, 2013: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
 Nov 18, 2013: Camera-ready of accepted papers
 Dec 18-21:   Workshops
