[PVS] [ACM-BCB 2012] Call for Papers, Contributed Presentations, Posters, and Tutorials

ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and
Biomedicine (ACM-BCB 2012): Call for Papers

Deadlines: June 7, 2012 (Abstract submission), June 15, 2012 (Paper submission)

Conference Dates: October 7-10  2012
Conference Venue: Embassy Suites, Downtown Orlando, FL

Conference Website: http://www.cse.buffalo.edu/ACM-BCB2012/

ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and
Biomedicine (ACM BCB) is the main flagship conference of the ACM SIG
Bioinformatics. ACM BCB 2012 is in its third year, building upon the
success of ACM BCB 2010 in Niagara Falls and ACM BCB 2011 in Chicago.
Each of the conference had about 200 attendees. ACM BCB 2012 will be
held in Orlando from October 7-10, 2012.

The conference will provide a premier forum for interdisciplinary and
multidisciplinary research encompassing disciplines of computer
science, mathematics, statistics, biology, bioinformatics, and
biomedicine. The last two decades have led to a tremendous growth in
the size and dimensionality of biological and biomedical data. This
conference serves to provide information on leading edge in research
in processing, modeling and analyzing these datasets for a variety of

The tracks that will be covered include:
?       Systems biology
?       Protein & RNA structure
?       Text mining for biomedical studies
?       Comparative genomics, population & cancer genomics
?       Algorithms for sequence analysis
?       Bioimage Analysis
?       Databases, Knowledgebases & Ontologies

Contributed Papers: ACM BCB? 12 welcomes original submissions that
have not been published and that are not under review by another
conference or journal.  Papers should not exceed 8 pages in ACM
template on 8.5 x 11 inch paper (see ACM templates). All submissions
will be evaluated on their originality, technical soundness,
significance, presentation, and interest to the conference attendees.
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 reviewed by ACM-BCB?s technical program
committee. All accepted papers of registered authors will be included
in the proceedings published by ACM digital libraries. Selected papers
will be invited to adapt their papers for their publication in several
journals. All accepted papers will be required to submit an online ACM
Copyright Form. Authors will be contacted by ACM requesting this
information. Submissions must not exceed 8 letter-size pages using the
ACM format for conference proceedings.  Details for the submission
website will be released soon.

Key Dates for Contributed Papers:
Abstract submission: June 7, 2012
Paper submission: June 15, 2012
Notifications sent to authors: July 22, 2012
Camera-ready papers due: August 16, 2012

Contributed Presentations: For papers that have been published in a journal after January 1, 2012, or papers that are "in press" at the time of submission and are already linked on the journal website, we invite authors who would like to present this work at ACM-BCB to submit a .PDF document containing:

(1) the title of the presentation;
(2) the author who would give the presentation;
(3) names and affiliations of all other authors;
(4) up to 250 word abstract describing the paper and its importance;
(5) a link to the journal publication;

Presentations will be chosen based on the scientific impact of the work and the potential for an exciting talk. Accepted presenters are required to make the presentations themselves, and must register and pay to attend the conference.

Key Dates for Contributed Presentations:
Submission Deadline:  June 15, 2012
Notification Date:  July 22, 2012

Posters: Poster presentations provide a unique environment that
enhances informal interactions with flexible format that enables your
work to reach a large audience, at the same time permitting in-depth
discussion.We encourage authors to submit posters (24 inches by 36
inches) that discuss new algorithms or novel computational approaches
broadly in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Systems Biology, and
Biomedicine. Presentations describing either novel computational
techniques or significant biological discovery through application of
existing computational techniques are welcome.

Key dates for Posters:
Submission deadline: July 20, 2012
Notification of Acceptance of Posters: August 3, 2012

Tutorials: We are looking for tutorials discussing state-of-the art
analysis methods that provide the audience with broad insights into
the discussed methodologies, and with practical knowledge of how to
apply them on their own datasets. Tutorial submission should consist
of: Title and description (1 page), Proposer?s name, brief biography
and contact information, and  Length of the tutorial (should be
between 2-4 hours). It should also provide the the intended audience,
background requirement, importance to the BCB community and benefits
to the participants. Additional details are available on the
conference website. Tutorial proposals should be submitted
electronically in PDF format to the general chair no later than June
15, 2012.

If you have any questions, please contact Jing Li (jingli at cwru dot edu).
