Call for Papers

2011 ACM Conference on Bioinformatics,
Computational Biology and Biomedicine (ACM BCB 11)

August 1-3, 2011, Chicago, Illinois


The ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and 
Biomedicine (ACM BCB)
is the main conference of the newly formed ACM SIG Bioinformatics.

This is the second year of the ACM BCB Conference. Over 200 people 
attended ACM BCB 10,
which took in Niagara Falls, NY on August 2-4, 2010.

ACM BCB 11 will be held in Chicago at the Hilton Suites Chicago – 
Magnificent Mile from August 1-3.
The conference welcomes high quality, original research papers. Papers 
should contain new
algorithms or novel computational approaches in the broad areas of 
computational biology and biomedicine. Papers that use existing 
computational techniques
in new and interesting ways leading to novel biological discoveries are 
also welcome.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Genomics: Structural, Functional, and Comparative
* Molecular Networks: Proteomics, Transcriptomics & Metabolomics
* Phylogenetics at Gene and Genome Levels
* Computational Systems Biology
* Immunoinformatics and Computational Immunology
* Computational Epidemiology
* Biomedical and Translational Informatics
* Databases, Knowledgebases & Ontologies for Bioinformatics
* Machine Learning, Image Analysis, Knowledge Representation and Inference
* Integration of Biomedical Data
* Text Mining and Natural Language Processing in Biomedicine
* Hardware and Software Infrastructure for Biomedicine

The best of the accepted papers will be published in special issues of 
four journals.
See the web site for details.
