Call for Papers

2015 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine

Nov 9-12  2015, Washington, DC, USA

The IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM)
has established itself as the premier research conference in bioinformatics
and biomedicine. IEEE BIBM 2015 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 their
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  Genomics
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
b. Biomedical Signal/Image Analysis
c. Genome-Phenome Analysis
d. Biomarker Discovery

4. Cross-Cutting Computational Methods and Bioinformatics Infrastructure
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 industry. We accept full
papers (up to 8 pages), extended abstracts (2-4 pages), as well as short
abstracts (1 page, 500 words).

• Journal special issues: IEEE BIBM has a tradition to publish selected
papers as special issues in highly respected journals. We will publish the
special issues publications with 8 journals: IEEE Transactions on
NanoBiosceince,  IEEE/ACM Transactions on Bioinformatics and Computational
Biology, International Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics,
Proteomics, BMC Genomics, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Complementary and
Alternative Medicine,  Journal of Network Modeling and Analysis in Health
Informatics and Bioinformatics, Methods (In the past BIBM conference, the
number of special issues is: BIBM 2014 – 10 special issues, BIBM 2013 –9
special issues, BIBM 2012—8 special issues, BIBM 2011—8 special issue,
 BIBM 2010—7 special issues, BIBM 2009—4 special issues; BIBM 2008—4
special issues)

• Student Travel Award: BIBM 2015 will offer as many as possible student
travel awards to student authors (including post-doc). We have received a
NSF grant for student travel award and expect to offer 25-30 student travel
awards.   (BIBM 2014—25 student travel awards, BIBM 2013—40 student travel
awards, BIBM 2012 -30 student travel awards, BIBM 2011—28 student travel
awards, BIBM 2010-22 student travel awards,  BIBM 2009—16 student travel
awards )
