CALL FOR PAPERS
***********************************************************************
BIBE 2007
IEEE 7th Symposium on BioInformatics & BioEngineering
October 15-17, 2007
Cambridge - Boston, Massachusetts
http://www.cs.gsu.edu/BIBE07/
***********************************************************************

Bioinformatics and bioengineering are complementary disciplines that 
hold great promise for the advancement of research and development in 
medicine, pharmaceuticals, public health, agriculture, and environmental 
studies. Combined research and development in bioinformatics and 
bioengineering is helping us understand living organisms at multiple 
levels, develop innovative implants and prosthetics, create new medical 
imaging technologies, and improve tools and techniques for the 
detection, prevention and treatment of diseases.


IEEE BIBE’07 will provide a platform for the cross fertilization of 
ideas, bridging these two important and complementary disciplines and 
helping shape knowledge and scientific achievements. The symposium 
solicits original contributions in the following areas:

BIOINFORMATICS:
- Bio-molecular and Phylogenetic Databases
- Bio-Languages
- Interoperability in BioDBs
- Bio-Ontology and Data Mining
- Identification and Classification of Genes
- Sequence Search and Alignment
- Protein Structure Prediction and Molecular Simulation
- Molecular Evolution and Phylogeny
- Functional Genomics
- Proteomics
- Drug Discovery
- Gene Expression Analysis
- Bioinformatics Engineering
- Bio-Data Visualization
- Systems Biology
- Algorithms, Modeling and Simulation of Bio-Sets
- Biomarkers of Toxicity
- Bio-Imaging
- Signaling and Computation

BIOENGINEERING:
- Biological Systems and Models
- Engineering Models in Bio-Medicine
- Image Guide Radio Therapy
- 4-D Images
- Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy
- Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy
- Dose Calculation and Optimization
- Monte Carlo Simulation
- Biological Modeling
- Cancer Detection and Medical Images
- Computer Assisted Intervention Systems and Medical Robotics
- Biomedical and Biological Sensors

INTERDISCIPLINARY AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY
IEEE BIBE ’07 will host sessions focusing on Interdisciplinary and 
Multidisciplinary research in order to foster collaboration between the 
bioinformatics and bioengineering domains.


Accepted papers will be published by IEEE/CS and indexed in EI. Selected 
papers can be included in Springer's LNCS Transactions on Computational 
Systems Biology and Journal of Supercomputing, Inderscience Publisher’s 
International Journal of Bioinformatics Research and Applications 
(IJBRA) and International Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics 
*(*IJDMB), RIP’s Journal of Computational Intelligent in Bioinformatics 
(JCIB) and BMC Bioinformatics, or the forthcoming International Journal 
of Bioinformatics & Bioengineering (IJBB). In addition, World Scientific 
Publisher's Journal of Bioinformatics and Computation Biology (JBCB) 
will warmly invite extended-version submission by selected authors based 
on recommendation by the BIBE07 PC chair. The symposium will award a 
limited number of travel fellowships for outstanding papers.
