Call for Paper

2007 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (IEEE 
BIBM 2007)
(co-located  with IEEE/WCI/ACM WI-IAT 07 and IEEE GrC 07)


San Jose, CA, USA    Nov 2-4, 2007

IEEE BIBM 2007 will provide a general forum for disseminating the latest 
research in bioinformatics and biomedicine. It is a multidisciplinary 
conference that brings together academic and industrial scientists from 
computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics and 
statistics. It will exchange research results and address open issues in 
all aspects of bioinformatics and biomedicine and  provide a forum for the 
presentation of work in  databases, algorithms, interfaces, visualization, 
modeling, simulation, ontology  and other computational methods, as 
applied to life science  problems, with emphasis on applications in high 
throughput data-rich areas in biology, biomedical engineering. IEEE BIBM 
2007   intends to attract a balanced combination of computer scientists, 
biologists, biomedical engineers, chemist, data analyzer, statistician. 

Topics of interests
We are soliciting high quality original research papers (including 
significant works-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.
