1st Workshop on Data Mining in Functional Genomics
			in Conjunction with

	IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine
		Philadelphia, PA, USA, Nov. 5-7, 2008


Workshop Description: Functional genomics is a sub-field of molecular
biology that makes use of the enormous amounts of data produced by
genomic projects to describe some dynamic aspects such as gene
transcription, translation, and protein-protein interactions. Because
these phenomena are typically characterized by large and increasing
amounts of data, diverse and unusual data types, and complex
relationships, interpreting such data requires novel approaches that
include multiple tools, new algorithms, resources, etc. in an
integrated fashion. Data Mining is the process of automatic discovery
of novel, understandable and potentially useful models from such
massive amounts of data.

Organized in conjunction with BIBM 2008, the objective of this
workshop is to facilitate collaboration between data mining
researchers and bioinformaticians by presenting cutting-edge research
topics and methodologies in the areas of functional genomics and data
mining. While such research has an interdisciplinary character, this
workshop emphasizes on the application of various data mining
techniques such as data pre-processing, data visualization, model
evaluation, classification and cluster analysis to research problems
that arise in functional genomics. We encourage papers that employ
data mining techniques for tasks related to functional genomics.
Research papers are solicited in, but not limited to the following

•	Microarray Expression Analysis
•	Protein Structure Prediction
•	Protein-Protein Interactions
•	Sub-cellular Localization
•	Proteomics
•	Mass spectrometry
•	Integration of Heterogeneous data
•	Gene Ontology

Paper Submission: Papers should be at most 8 pages long, including all
figures, tables, and references. Papers should be submitted
electronically by email to the workshop chairs in .pdf format. All
papers accepted for this workshop will be included in the Workshop
Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, which are
indexed by EI.

Important Dates:
Paper Submission Deadline: 	August 15, 2008
Notification of Acceptance: 	September 10, 2008
Final Camera-ready Paper Due: 	September 17, 2008
Workshop Day: 			November 5, 6, or 7, 2008
