2007 VLDB Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics




Mining biological data is an emerging area of intersection between
bioinformatics and data mining. Bioinformaticians have taken a
computational approach to understanding biological phenomena.  Because
these phenomena are typically characterized by large and increasing
amounts of data, divers and unusual data types, and complex
relationships, interpreting biological data requires novel approaches
that include multiple tools, new algorithms, resources, etc. in an
integrated fashion. Data mining has focused on extracting useful
information from large databases, focusing on scalable, robust
algorithms and their implementations. The proposed workshop will
respond to both these areas of research by encouraging researchers in
the data mining community to bring to bear novel techniques,
combinations of tools, and so forth to mine biological data.

The objective of the workshop is to facilitate collaboration between
data mining researchers and bioinformaticians by presenting cutting
edge research topics and methodologies in the area of data mining for
bioinformatics. While such research has an interdisciplinary
character, this workshop emphasizes on the area of data mining with
particular application to bioinformatics.

The workshop will feature invited talks from noted experts in the
field and the latest data mining research in bioinformatics. We
encourage papers that propose novel data mining techniques for tasks
such as:

Text mining and ontologies
High-throughput storage/processing/analysis, e.g., gene expression data
Visualization of large data sets
Interpretation of experiments in the context of knowledge from databases
Protein or gene interaction networks
RNAi and microRNA analysis
Systems biology
Genomic and proteomic sequence analysis
Comparative genomics

Guidelines and instructions

We invite papers on original research. Submissions must clearly
identify the nature of the paper. All submitted papers will peer
reviewed and evaluated on originality, significance, technical
soundness, and clarity of expression.
The submitted material must neither be published or under review in
other venues.  Selected papers will be published in the Journal of
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.  By submitting a paper,
authors explicitly agree that at least one of them will register for
the workshop and present the paper. Submissions must not exceed 10
pages in double column format for full length papers.

Each submission must be accompanied by a separate cover letter with
title, key words, all author names and affiliations, and must specify
a contact author along with postal address, phone & fax numbers, and
email address.


We will release workshop details in the future.

All enquiries should be addressed to one of the co-chairs:
Mehmet M. Dalkilic: dalkilic from indiana.edu
David P. Kreil: vldb07 from kreil.org
Sun Kim: sunkim from bio.informatics.indiana.edu
Jiong Yang: jiong.yang from case.edu
