[PVS] ICCABS'12 final CFP -- submission dealine Jan. 17, 2012




                             CALL FOR PAPERS

                    2nd IEEE International Conference on
         Computational Advances in Bio and Medical Sciences (ICCABS)

                    Feb. 23-25, 2012, Las Vegas, Nevada

                          http://www.iccabs.org/

Advances in high-throughput technologies such as DNA sequencing and mass 
spectrometry are profoundly transforming life sciences, resulting in the 
collection of unprecedented amounts of biological and medical data. Using this 
data to advance our knowledge about fundamental biological processes and 
improve human health requires novel computational models and advanced analysis 
algorithms.  IEEE ICCABS aims to bring together leading academic and industry 
researchers to discuss the latest advances in computational methods for bio and 
medical sciences.
