                              CALL FOR PAPERS

             3rd IEEE International Conference on Computational
               Advances in Bio and medical Sciences (ICCABS)
                      June 12-14, New Orleans, LA, USA

   Advances in high-throughput technologies such as DNA sequencing and
   mass sp= ectrometry are profoundly transforming life sciences,
   resulting in the coll= ection of unprecedented amounts of biological
   and medical data. Using this= data to advance our knowledge about
   fundamental biological processes and i= mprove human health requires
   novel computational models and advanced analys= is algorithms. IEEE
   ICCABS aims to bring together leading academic and ind= ustry
   researchers to discuss the latest advances in computational methods f   or bio and medical sciences.  

   Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
     * Biological modeling and simulation (Molecular and cellular mode       ling, stochastic and rule-based modeling, modeling languages and
     * Biomedical image processing (Image segmentation and classi       fication, visualization, functional and molecular imaging);
     * Biomedical data and literature mining (Data integration, k       nowledge discovery from electronic medical records and scientific
       literatur= e);
     * Computational genetic epidemiology (Linkage and associatio= n
       analysis, gene-gene and gene-environment interaction modeling,
       genetic ri= sk analysis);
     * Computational metabolomics (Metabolomics databases, metabo= lite
       identification, spectral analysis, metabolic network modeling);
     * Computational proteomics (Peptide identification and quant       ification, post-translational modifications, protein-protein
       interactions )= ;
     * Databases and ontologies (Biomedical data warehouses, data= base
       integration, biomedical ontologies and semantic web services);
     * Gene regulation (Regulatory motifs and modules, post-trans       criptional regulation, regulatory networks);
     * Genome analysis (Genome assembly, genome annotation, compa= rative
       genomics, metagenomics);
     * Health Informatics (Medical data management and privacy, m= edical
       recommender systems, therapy optimization);
     * High-performance bio-computing (Cloud and grid computing,        advanced multi-core, GPU, and FPGA biomedical applications);
     * Immunoinformatics (Epitope prediction, vaccine design, imm= une
       system simulators);
     * Molecular evolution (Models of evolution, reconstruction o= f
       phylogenetic trees and networks, comparative genomics);
     * Population genomics (Haplotype and recombination analysis,       structural genomic variation, signatures of natural selection);
     * Sequence analysis (Multiple sequence alignment, motif disc= overy,
       sequence search and clustering);
     * Structural bioinformatics (RNA and protein structure predi= ction
       and classification, molecular docking, RNA and protein design);
     * Systems biology (Systems approaches to molecular biology,        multi-scale modeling, biological networks, synthetic biology);
     * Transcriptomics (Microarray and sequencing-based transcrip= tome
       profiling, novel transcript discovery, alternative splicing,
       non-codin= g RNA analysis).
