Intelligent Informatics in Biomedicine

Description

The IIBM2012 workshop (http://iibm12.csie.tku.edu.tw/) brings together computer scientists, computational biologists, statisticians, and medical doctors in order to present and discuss current topics on intelligent informatics in biology and medicine. Advances in information technologies facilitate and accelerate research on molecular biology and drug discovery. However, the increasing complexity and volume of experimental data from next generation sequencing and mass spectrometry technologies mean that more sophisticated computational techniques are urgently required. Such methods must also be able to support new sensing techniques that are being developed to improve the quality of healthcare and medicine. The use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data mining can potentially play a significant role in addressing these important challenges. This special issue will focus on the challenges and solutions for information processes with an emphasis on forthcoming high throughput technology and biomedicine systems and will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area of biomedicine. The special issue will publish high-quality papers which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in bioinformatics, genomics, epigenomics, and proteomics. In addition, we expect that this special issue will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in all biomedical applications. The special issue thus will be of interest to a wide range of readership in computational, biological, and medical sciences. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Sequence and structural motifs
  • Gene expression analysis and microarray analysis
  • Modeling of biochemical pathways
  • Structural simulation and drug design
  • Pharmacogenomics and pharmacoproteomics
  • Posttranslational modification
  • Next generation sequencing: algorithms and data analysis

The special issue, not limited to the selected conference papers, also welcomes submission from outside contributors.

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/bmri/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/bmri/iib/ according to the following timetable:
