Special Track on Bioinformatics and its Medical Applications

21st IEEE International Symposium on

Jyvaskyla, Finland 
June 17-19, 2008


Major computational challenges have been raised in the post-genomic era.
Novel computational methods and approaches are required to acquire, store,
organize, archive, analyse and visualize the large amount of biological and
biomedical data. The goal of the track is to share ideas related to
bioinformatics challenge among biological, biomedical and computer
scientists. Authors are invited to submit original papers addressing any
computational biology issue. Papers are invited (but not limited) to the
following key themes:

* Biomedical Research
* Functional Genomics
* Evolution and Phylogenetics
* Visualization
* Data Mining in Bioinformatics
* Protein Structure and Analysis
* Microarray Analysis
* Comparative Genomics
* RNAi Analysis
* Pattern Recognition
* Sequence Alignment
* Ontologies
* Pathways, Networks, Systems Biology
* Software Systems

Unlike workshops, where position papers and reports on initial and intended
work are appropriate, papers selected for a special track should report on
significant unpublished work suitable for publication as a conference
paper.More information about the symposium, registration fees, venue can be
found here: http://cbms2008.it.jyu.fi


January 28, 2008 - Submission of (6-page, maximum) paper
March 1, 2008 - Notification of acceptance
March 28, 2008 - Final camera-ready paper due
March 28, 2008 - Pre-registration deadline
June 17-19, 2008 - Symposium


No hardcopy submissions are being accepted. Electronic submissions of
original technical research papers will only be accepted in PDF format. Use
a maximum of six pages IEEE two-column format, including figures and
references. All submissions will be done electronically via the CBMS 2008
web submission system. Select the track title " Bioinformatics and its
Medical Applications", provide the information about the paper title,
authors, keywords, and corresponding author's information (telephone, fax,
mailing address, e-mail address). Please note that author names should not
appear on the paper. Submit your manuscript no later than January 28, 2008.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by March 1, 2008 after a review
process by three independent experts. Each accepted paper to the Special
Track on Bioinformatics and its Medical Applications will be published in
the conference proceedings by IEEE CS Press, conditional upon the author's
advance registration. Papers that were not accepted by the Program
Committee of the track can be considered for publication as regular
submissions by the General Program Committee of IEEE CBMS 2008. Please note
that the format of IEEE CBMS 2008 
proceedings will be the IEEE Computer Science Press 8.5x11-inch Two-Column
Submission is encouraged in this format. For more details please see the
website of 
IEEE CBMS 2008: (http://cbms2008.it.jyu.fi/).
