IEEE ICDM 2006 Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics (DMB 2006)
18 December 2006, Hong Kong


Data Mining deals with the use of data analysis techniques and 
methodologies in the design, development and assessment of data and 
information systems for biomedical computing. The goal of this workshop 
is to share research solutions using data mining approaches to problems 
of today's biomedical systems and to identify new issues and directions 
for future research in biomedical data mining. This workshop will 
broadly address following areas:

* Conceptual Models for Biological and Medical Data.
* Biomedical Data Integration, Analysis and Interoperability.
* Biomedical Query Processing, Query Optimization, and Information 
* Ontology-driven Biomedical Systems.
* Biomedical Data Privacy and Security.
* Data mining applications in bioinformatics, biomedicine, health care 
and other biomedical domain areas.

Techniques and Methodologies proposed in this workshop will help 
addressing two major challenges to incorporate this vast biological 
knowledge into the data mining cycle: (i) designing efficient the data 
mining frameworks; and (ii) adapting existing data mining algorithms to 
understand constantly varying and changing biomedical data. In this 
workshop we hope to present to the audience, the state-of-the-art 
frameworks for bringing the background biomedical knowledge into the 
pattern recognition task for biomedical data.

Authors are invited to submit original papers to the workshop exploring 
data mining theories, techniques, and applications for Bioinformatics. 
Papers are invited (but not limited) to the following themes:

* Conceptual Models for Biological and Medical Data
* Microarray Data Analysis
* Protein/RNA Structure Prediction
* Genomics and Proteomics
* Drug Design
* Biomedical Literature Mining
* Modeling of Biochemical Pathways
* Comparative Genomics
* Biological data Visualization
* Phylogenetics
* Biomedical Ontologies
* Biomedical Data Engineering using Ontologies
* System Biology and Pathways
* Biological Database Management
* Interoperation of Biomedical Databases
* Biomedical Query Processing, Query Optimization, and Information 
* Biomedical Data Privacy and Security
* Data mining applications in bioinformatics, biomedicine, health care 
and other biomedical domain areas
