Hi, Colleagues: Sorry for crossing-list. Please feel free to distribute the following cfp to anyone who might be interested. 9th International Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics (BIOKDD10) in conjunction with ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (SIGKDD'10) http://bio.informatics.iupui.edu/biokdd10 July 25-28, 2010 Washington DC, USA The goal of this workshop is to encourage KDD researchers and practitioners to take on the numerous challenges that Bioinformatics offers. This year the workshop will feature the theme of "Mining biocomplexity: from molecular systems to health". Complex biological systems consist of components that are in themselves complex and interacting with each other. Understanding how the various components work in concert, using modern high-throughput biology and data mining methods, is crucial to the ultimate goal of genome-based economy such as genome medicine and new agricultural and energy solutions. Applying the study of complex biological systems, health informatics aims to discover novel and useful patterns in large volumes of health care related data and to explore the links between disease physiology and molecular bio-sciences. BIOKDD offers a premier forum of presenting data mining concepts and tools for integrating data from heterogeneous multimedia sources, especially those from new high-throughput experimental data collection technologies, and expediting knowledge discovery in a wide range of areas including biological, biomedical, pharmaceutical, nursing, clinical care, dentistry, and public health research. We encourage papers that propose novel data mining techniques for post-genome bioinformatics studies in areas such as: * Phylogenetics and comparative Genomics * DNA microarray data analysis * Deep sequencing data analysis * RNAi and microRNA analysis * Protein/RNA structure prediction * Sequence and structural motif finding * Modeling of biological networks and pathways * Statistical learning methods in bioinformatics * Dynamics modeling for biological networks * Computational proteomics * Computational biomarker discoveries * Gene-environment, Gene-drug, drug-drug interaction discoveries * Computer aided drug discoveries * Biomedical Text mining * Biological data management techniques * Semantic webs and ontology-driven biological data integration methods * Knowledge discovery in electronic medical records * Privacy and security issues in mining health databases Papers should be at most 10 pages long, single-spaced, in font size 10 or larger with one-inch margins on all sides. Paper in PDF/PS format should be submitted to the workshop submission site http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=biokdd10. Camera-ready format papers may be referenced from previous BIOKDD conference proceedings. PUBLICATION ------------ The workshop proceeding will be made available online. Selected papers from the workshop will be invited for consideration for publication in a special issue of a current bioinformatics journal or as a book chapter. Details of the journal/book publication will be announced at the web site: http://bio.informatics.iupui.edu/biokdd10/ IMPORTANT DATES ---------------------------- 5/04/2010 Deadline for Submission of papers 5/21/2010 Notification of Acceptance; Workshop Registration Open 6/01/2010 Submission of Camera Ready Papers 7/25/2010 Workshop Presentation WORKSHOP ORGANIZERS -------------------- Program Co-Chairs: Jun (Luke) Huan, University of Kansas Jake Chen, Indiana University School of Informatics Mohammed Zaki, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
