The International Joint Conference on Bioinformatics, Systems Biology and Intelligent Computing (IJCBS'09) will take place in Shanghai, China on August 3rd - 6th, 2009. You are invited to submit papers with unpublished original work describing recent advances on all aspects of Bioinformatics, Systems Biology and Intelligent Computing, including, but not restricted to the following topics:
Bio-molecular and phylogenetic databases, bio-languages, interoperability in bio-databases, bio-ontology and data mining; identification and classification of genes; sequence search and alignment; protein structure prediction and molecular simulation; molecular evolution and phylogeny; functional genomics, proteomics; drug discovery; gene _expression_ analysis; bioinformatics engineering; bio-data visualization; algorithms, modeling and simulation of bio-sets; biomarkers of toxicity; bio-imaging; signaling and computation, genetics and genomics.
Modeling and simulation of biological processes, pathways, networks, pipelines, mathematical and quantitative models of cellular and multicellular systems, emergence of properties in complex biological systems, methods to predict biological network behavior from incomplete information, statistical modeling of biological data, prediction and validation, synthetic biological systems, high performance bio-computing, self-organization in living systems (cells, organisms, swarms, ecosystems, etc.), platforms for computational modeling of living systems (parallel, distributed, and multi-resolution simulation methods), differential, discrete and/or stochastic modeling-language frameworks, applications of systems biology towards understanding disease mechanisms, pharmaceutical drug discovery and drug target validation.
Machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition, agents, neural computing, kernel methods, evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence and optimization; feature selection/extraction; ensemble methods; manifold learning theory; artificial life and artificial immune systems; technology to develop artificial components, systematization methodology for intelligent systems, and scientific principles related to artificial life.
Workshop/Special Session Proposals: February 1, 2009
Paper Submission (maximum 8 pages with IEEE/CS conference format): February 15, 2009
Notification to Authors: March 15, 2009
Camera-Ready, Full Papers: April 5, 2009 Paper Submission and Publication
IJCBS09 invites authors to submit papers using the linkhttp://www.isibm.org/IJCBS/submission.html
. By submitting your paper to IJCBS'09, you implicitly state that the paper is based on your own original research and that it was not and will not be submitted elsewhere. Papers should not exceed 7 pages with standard IEEE CS formats. All submitted papers should be written in English. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the work associated with the paper submitted.
All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. All accepted papers of registered authors will be included in the proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society and indexed in EI. Selected papers will be invited to adapt their papers for their publication in several journals, including BMC Genomics, International Journal of Data Mining & Bioinformatics, International Journal of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence, Journal of Supercomputing, International Journal of Computational Biology and Drug Design, IJFIPM and other SCI and PubMed indexed journals.
Awards will be granted to the best paper of those presented at the conference. The IJCBS'09 will award a number of travel fellowships for students and authors of outstanding papers.
