Special Session on: Data Mining for Bioinformatics

The IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and  
Computational Biology 2008 special session on Data Mining for  
Bioinformatics will focus on novel results in the topics of  
computational intelligence as they are employed for data mining  
applications in bioinformatics. The computational intelligence (CI)  
areas of interest include Genetic Algorithms, Neural Computation,  
Fuzzy systems, Hidden Markov models, Rough Set Theory, Support Vector  
Machines, Chaos Theory, Simulated Annealing, Bayesian Framework,  
Probabilistic models, Statistical models and other emerging  
Evolutionary Computing techniques. We are specifically interested in  
topics of CI that have been developed to address data mining  
challenges in several important problems of bioinformatics, including  
but not limited to:

·       Supervised and unsupervised methods for Microarray data analysis
·       Knowledge modeling in biomedical databases
·       Feature selection in biological data
·       Medical imaging and pattern recognition
·       Metabolic pathway analysis and Gene regulatory network modeling
·       Motif and pattern discovery
·       Protein, Enzyme, and RNA structure prediction and folding
·       Evolutionary Computing for Bioinformatics
·       Molecular sequence alignment and analysis
·       Fuzzy Modeling for gene sequence analysis
·       Cell simulation and modeling
·       Molecular computing
·       Bayesian Frameworks for Microarray data analysis
·       Ontologies and taxonomies
·       Neural Network Model for Genome sequence analysis
·       Wavelets based data mining
·       Fuzzy modeling in Bioinformatics
·       Information and data visualization
·       Automated text categorization and authority determination
·       Dimensionality reduction in bioinformatics

Paper Submission: Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of  
no more than eight (8) pages IEEE conference style papers including  
results, figures and references; submission details can be found on
