Call for Papers
2012 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine

October 4-7, 2012, Philadelphia, PA,  USA,

The IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine
(BIBM) has established itself as the premier research conference in
bioinformatics and biomedicine. IEEE BIBM 2012 provides a leading
forum for disseminating the latest research in bioinformatics and
health informatics. It brings together academic and industrial
scientists from computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine,
mathematics and statistics.

We solicit high-quality original research papers (including
significant work-in-progress) in any aspect of bioinformatics and
biomedicine. New computational techniques and methods in machine
learning; data mining; text analysis; pattern recognition; knowledge
representation; databases; data modeling; combinatorics; stochastic
modeling; string and graph algorithms; linguistic methods; robotics;
constraint satisfaction; data visualization; parallel computation;
data integration; modeling and simulation and heir application in life
science domain are especially encouraged Relevant topics include but
are not limited to:

1. Genomics and Molecular Structure, Function and Evolution
   a. Next-Gen Sequencing and Metagenomics
   b. Evolution, Phylogeny, Comparative ĘGenomics
   c. SNPs and haplotype analysis, GWAS
   d. Protein/RNA Structure, Function and Interactions

2. Computational Systems Biology
   a. Transcriptomics - Microarray Data Analysis
   b. Gene Regulation, Alternative Splicing, Network/Pathway Analysis
   c. Proteomics, PTMs, Metabolomics
   d. Epigenomics, non-coding RNA analysis, DNA methylation analysis

3. Medical Informatics and Translational Bioinformatics
   a. Biomedical Intelligence, Clinical Data Analysis, and Electronic
      Health Record
   b. Biomedical Signal/Image Analysis
   c. Genome-Phenome Analysis
   d. Biomarker Discovery

4. Cross-Cutting Computational Methods and Bioinformatics
   a. Biomedical Text Mining and Ontologies
   b. Biological Data Mining and Visualization
   c. Computational Modeling and Data Integration
   d. High Performance Computing

5. Healthcare Informatics
   a. Healthcare knowledge representation & reasoning
   b. Health data acquisition, analysis and mining
   c. Healthcare information systems
   d. Clinical Decision Support and Informatics


The Industrial Track solicits papers describing implementations of
Bioinformatics and Biomedicine solutions relevant to industrial
settings. The focus of industry track is on papers that address the
practical, applied, or pragmatic or new research challenge issues
related to the use of bioinformatics and biomedicine technologies in

* Journal special issues: IEEE BIBM has a tradition to publish
  selected papers as special issues in highly respected journals. So
  far we have confirmed the special issues publications with 7
  journals: IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in
  Biomedicine, IEEE Transactions onĘ System, Men and Cybernetics,
  International Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics, BMC
  Bioinformatics, BMC Proteomics, BMC Genomics, BMC Proteomics
  Science,Ę Proteomics, Journal of Network Modeling and Analysis in
  Health Informatics and Bioinformatics (In the past BIBM conference,
  the number of special issues is: BIBM 2011-8 special issues, BIBM
  2010-7 special issues, BIBM 2009-4 special issues; BIBM 2008-4
  special issues)

* Student Travel Award: BIBM 2012 will offer as many as possible
  student travel awards to student authors (including post-doc) (BIBM
  2011-28 student travel awards, BIBM 2010-22 student travel awards,
  BIBM 2009-16 student travel awards )

* Panel on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine Research Challenges and
  Opportunities led by top researchers and program managers from NSF
  and NIH
