 Context and Objectives:
 Biology and Biomedicine have become increasingly
 data-driven sciences. The
 researchers in this area are producing vast
 quantities of data daily from
 sources such as clinical trials, statistics,
 population genetics, imaging,
 gene sequencing, gene expression analysis, and
 protein identification
 projects. These data enable the creation of enormous
 digital libraries. This
 data is unique in the sense that it combines
 enormity with fine granularity.
 The rate of accumulation of this data has far
 exceeded our capacity to
 analyze it and discover novel and significant
 knowledge embedded in it using
 non-automated means. This has led to the evolution
 of a new-fangled area of
 multi-disciplinary research, termed Bioinformatics,
 defined as the science
 of storing, extracting, organizing, analyzing,
 interpreting and utilizing
 information from biological sequences and molecules.
 Biomedical Informatics
 deals with algorithms and routines that have general
 applicability and that
 form the basis for the evolving information
 technology research in
 biomedical sciences and related disciplines.  This
 track focuses on the
 techniques and methodologies which give rise to
 design and development of
 information technology routines for applications in
 Bioinformatics and/or
 Biomedical Informatics.
 The topics of interest include, but are not limited
 to the following:
 - Algorithms for Microarray Analysis
 - Computational Protein Structure prediction and
 - Data Mining for Bioinformatics applications
 - Functional Genomics
 - High Performance Computing
 - Machine learning
 - Pathways, Networks, Systems Biology
 - Pattern Recognition and Sequence Alignment
 - Regulatory Networks
 - String and graph algorithms for Bioinformatics
 Biomedical Computing:
 - Mining biomedical databases
 - Heterogeneous Data Integration
 - Storage and access structures for biomedical data
 - Biological and biomedical data modeling
 - Information Retrieval from Biomedical data Sources
 - Scientific Visualization
 - Automated text categorization and authority
 - Mining techniques for emerging imaging types
 All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis
 of technical quality,
 relevance, significance and clarity. Authors should
 submit original,
 unpublished papers containing contributions of
 theoretical or experimental
 nature. Papers will be published in ITCC 2004
 Conference Proceedings.
 Selected papers will be considered for Journal
