                                  Call for Workshop Proposals
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

        Workshop Proposals Due: May 20, 2007
All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the Workshop 
Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, which are 
indexed by EI.
The Program Committees of 2007 IEEE International Conference on 
Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (IEEE BIBM 2007) invite proposals for 
Workshops.  The Workshops will be held within the Conference, November 
2-5, 2007 at Silicon Valley, USA.
The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop, 
forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the  papers, and 
guaranteeing a high quality worthy of the prestige and range of the 
Conference.  All papers accepted for workshops will be  included in the 
Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and will 
be available at the workshops.
The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing selected 
papers (after their expansion and revision) into books or special journal 
issues.  Workshops may be full-day or half-day. A full-day workshop should 
select 20-25 regular papers, while a half-day  workshop should select 
10-13 regular papers, from a large number of    submissions.  The workshop 
organizers should ensure the presence of   authors of accepted papers at 
the workshops.
 I. Workshop Topics
Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and 
initiatives in Bioinformatics and Biomedicine.  The workshops should 
provide an informal and vibrant forum for researchers and industry 
practitioners to share their research results and practical development 
experiences in these two fields.  Suggested, but not limited to, workshop 
topics include: data mining and machine learning algorithms for biomedical 
applications, natural language processing techniques for bioinformatics 
and biomedicine, graph techniques for biomedical networks, motif detection 
techniques, in-silico diagnosis and prognosis, and etc. 
 II. Workshop Proposal Submission
        Workshop proposals should include the following elements:
Title of the workshop
Your name, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address
A description of the topic of the workshop (not exceeding 200 words)
Type of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
A description of how the workshop will contribute to the field of 
Bioinformatics or/and Biomedicine Technology
A short description on how the workshop will be advertised so as to ensure 
a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers.
        After the acceptance of a workshop proposal the organizer(s) 
Create a "Call for papers/participation" for the workshop
Create a Web page for the workshop, the link of which will be published on 
the Conference Web site
Create a Board of Reviewers (Program Committee)
Review and select papers
Schedule the workshop activities

 All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, 
relevance, significance, and clarity.  We will provide an online paper 
submission and review system to support the workshops.
  III. Important Dates
May 20, 2007: Workshop proposal submission due
(Please send proposals by e-mail to any of the  Workshop Chairs)
June 1, 2007: Notification to workshop proposers
June 10, 2007: Each workshop organizer sends out Call for Workshops Papers
August 10, 2007: Due date for full workshop papers submission (at least 
two reviews for each paper)
September 10, 2007: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
September 17, 2007: Camera-ready of accepted papers

        Tharam S. Dillion Curtin University of Technology, Australia
        Email:  tharam from it.uts.edu.au
        Note: we will not have a separate workshop registration fee this 
year (i.e., only one conference registration covers everything).
        For your information, the BIBM'07 conference will be co-located 
with the 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM WI-IAT and the IEEE International Conference on 
Granular Computing (GrC'07) for providing synergism among the four 
research areas. It will provide opportunities for technical collaboration 
beyond that of previous conferences. The four conferences will have the 
joint opening, keynote, reception, and banquet. Attendees only need to 
register one conference and can attend sessions across the four 
conferences. We are planning to have a joint panel and joint paper 
sessions that discuss common research problems in the four areas.

Best regards!
