International Workshop on  

   Biological Knowledge Discovery
and Data Mining (BIOKDD'10) 

Held in parallel

21st International Conference on Database and  

Expert Systems Applications (DEXA’10) 




 Bilbao ,

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 trends.  

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


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
