Call for Papers

IEEE ITCC 2004: IEEE International Conference on Information
Technology: Coding and Computing

Special Track on:

The Orleans, Las Vegas, NV, April 5 -7, 2004
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society

Submission deadline: November 21, 2003.

Track Homepage: http://www.latech.edu/~sdua/itcc2004/

Context and Objectives:
Biology and Biomedicine have become increasingly data-driven sciences. The
researchers in this area are producing vast quantities of data daily from
sources such as clinical trials, statistics, population genetics, imaging,
gene sequencing, gene expression analysis, and protein identification
projects. These data enable the creation of enormous digital libraries. This
data is unique in the sense that it combines enormity with fine granularity.
The rate of accumulation of this data has far exceeded our capacity to
analyze it and discover novel and significant knowledge embedded in it using
non-automated means. This has led to the evolution of a new-fangled area of
multi-disciplinary research, termed Bioinformatics, defined as the science
of storing, extracting, organizing, analyzing, interpreting and utilizing
information from biological sequences and molecules. Biomedical Informatics
deals with algorithms and routines that have general applicability and that
form the basis for the evolving information technology research in
biomedical sciences and related disciplines.  This track focuses on the
techniques and methodologies which give rise to design and development of
information technology routines for applications in Bioinformatics and/or
Biomedical Informatics.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

- Algorithms for Microarray Analysis
- Computational Protein Structure prediction and Analysis
- Data Mining for Bioinformatics applications
- Functional Genomics
- High Performance Computing
- Machine learning
- Pathways, Networks, Systems Biology
- Pattern Recognition and Sequence Alignment
- Regulatory Networks
- String and graph algorithms for Bioinformatics

Biomedical Computing:
- Mining biomedical databases
- Heterogeneous Data Integration
- Storage and access structures for biomedical data
- Biological and biomedical data modeling
- Information Retrieval from Biomedical data Sources
- Scientific Visualization
- Automated text categorization and authority determination
- Mining techniques for emerging imaging types

All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality,
relevance, significance and clarity. Authors should submit original,
unpublished papers containing contributions of theoretical or experimental
nature. Papers will be published in ITCC 2004 Conference Proceedings.
Selected papers will be considered for Journal publication.

Submit your papers (up to 8 pages, in the IEEE Proceedings format)
electronically through http://www.softconf.com/start/ITCC2004/submit.html
