Default IEEE BIBM 2011 Workshop: Cancer Informatics

IEEE BIBM 2011 Workshop: Cancer Informatics

IEEE BIBM 2011 worshop: Cancer Informatics CFP (firm deadline: Sep 20, 2011)

Dear all,

Please help distribute the IEEE BIBM 2011 Cancer Informatics workshop CFP to
your friends, colleagues and students and encourage them to submit their
research work to the workshop by July September 20, 2011.

More information can be found at The important dates
are as follows:

September 20, 2011: Due date for full workshop papers submission October 5,
2011: Notification of paper acceptance to authors October 15, 2010:
Camera-ready of accepted papers November 12-15: Workshops

Call for Papers

This workshop aims to provide a forum for discussion on integrated analyses
of multiple data types, comparative analyses across multiple cancer types,
computational prediction and modeling related (but not limited) to cancer
genome analysis, cancer genome evolution, genomic mutations versus cancer
microenvironments, cancer pathway and network elucidation, biomarker
identification, cell-cell communication.

We welcome both computational and biomedical research to submit papers with
unpublished and original research, with particular emphasis on, but not
limited to:

. Integrated analysis of multiple omic data types relevant to mechanism of
cancer and cancer diagnosis (including subtyping and staging) and prognosis;

. Inference of novel regulatory, signaling and metabolic pathways related
to cancer through comparative "-omics" analyses across multiple cancers;

. Prediction of cancer-associated biological network interactions
contributing to cancer development and progression;

. Understanding of miRNA regulation network in cancers;

. Drug target discovery through integrated "-omics" data analyses;

. Studying "driver" versus "passenger" mutations in cancer through
integrated data analyses;

. Cancer genome evolution;

. Modeling of biological processes in cancer.

Best Regards,
Workshop Co-Chairs

Main conference

2011 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine

Atlanta, Georgia, USA, Nov. 12-15, 2011

IEEE BIBM 2011 provides a general 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. Hong Kong is a vibrant
business city with many attractions and a distinctive culture.

. Journal special issues: IEEE BIBM has a tradition to publish
selected papers as special issues in highly respected SCI indexed journals.
So far we have confirmed the special issues publications with IEEE
Transactions on NanoBiosceiences, International Journal of Data Mining and
Bioinformatics, BMC Bioinformatics, Proteomics. (In the past BIBM
conference, the number of special issues is: BIBM 2010-7 special issues,
BIBM 2009-4 special issue; BIBM 2008-4 special issues)

. Student Travel Award: BIBM 2011 will offer 20 student travel awards
to student authors including post-doc

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
