The 2nd BioDM Workshop on Data Mining for Biomedical Applications (BioDM 2007)
Nanjing, China - The workshop aims to be a highly communicative meeting place for researchers working on a wide range of biomedical topics.
The first BioDM workshop was successfully held in April, 2006 in Singapore which attracted 35 full submissions, of which 14 papers were presented in the workshop and published as a volume of LNBI by Springer-Verlag. Again, BioDM 2007 is aimed at attracting top researchers, practitioners, and students from around the world to discuss data mining applications in the field of bioinformatics.
Biomedical research and applications often involve large volume of data, e.g. clinical data, genomic sequence data, protein structure data, gene expression profiles, mass spectra, protein interaction networks, pathway networks, and Medline abstracts. There are many computationally challenging problems in the analysis of these diverse and voluminous data. To address the computational problems and their relevance to biology, we encourage authors to submit papers that propose novel data mining techniques or that effectively use existing computational algorithms to solve challenging problems in the following topics (but not limited to):
* Rule induction from traditional clinical data
* Biomedical text mining
* In-silico diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of diseases
* Genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics
* Systems biology
* Protein structure and function
* Topological properties of interaction networks
* Biomedical data integration
* Ontology-driven biomedical systems
* Biomedical data privacy and security.
