                          CALL FOR PAPERS

                    2nd International Workshop on
       Biological Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (BIOKDD'10)

                        Held in parallel with

            21st International Conference on Database and
                 Expert Systems Applications (DEXA’10)

                         Bilbao, Spain
                  August 30-September 3, 2010

With the development of Molecular Biology during the last decades, we are
witnessing an exponential growth of both the volume and the complexity of
biological data. For example, the Human Genome Project provided the sequence
of the 3 billion DNA bases that constitute the human genome. And,
consequently, we are provided too with the sequences of about 100,000
proteins. Therefore, we are entering the post-genomic era: after having
focused so many efforts on the accumulation of data, we have now to focus as
much effort, and even more, on the analysis of these data. Analyzing this
huge volume of data is a challenging task because, not only, of its
complexity and its multiple and numerous correlated factors, but also,
because of the continuous evolution of our understanding of the biological
mechanisms. Classical approaches of biological data analysis are no longer
efficient and produce only a very limited amount of information, compared to
the numerous and complex biological mechanisms under study. From here comes
the necessity to use computer tools and develop new in silico high
performance approaches to support us in the analysis of biological data and,
hence, to help us in our understanding of the correlations that exist
between, on one hand, structures and functional patterns of biological
sequences and, on the other hand, genetic and biochemical mechanisms.
Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD) are a response to these new

Topics of BIOKDD'10 workshop include, but not limited to:

 . Data Preprocessing: Data Storage, Representation and Management, Data
Cleaning, Feature Extraction, Feature Selection.

 . Data Mining: Biological Data Clustering/Biclustering, Biological Data
Classification, Biological Data Regression, Association Rule Learning from
Biological Data, Parallel/Cloud/Grid Computing for Biological Data Mining,
Text Mining and Application to Biological Sequences, Web Mining and
Application to Biological Data, Analysis of Biological Networks.

 . Data Postprocessing: Knowledge Filtering, Knowledge Representation and
Visualization, Knowledge Combination and Integration, Error Rates and
Numerical Indicators.

PAPER SUBMISSION DETAILS: Authors are invited to submit electronically
original contributions in English. Submitted papers should not exceed 5
pages in IEEE format <
www.ieee.org/web/publications/authors/transjnl/index.html>. All accepted
papers will be published in the proceedings of DEXA’10 Workshops with IEEE
CSP. One of the authors of an accepted paper must register to DEXA’10
conference and present the paper at BIOKDD’10 workshop. For paper
registration and electronic submission see <
