Special session and workshop:


algorithms for in-silico modeling biological networks and generating
quantitative predictions” 



BIOCOMP'10 (The 2010 International Conference on
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology), 

July 12-15, 2010, Las Vegas, USA



Deciphering the biological networks underlying the complex
phenotypic traits such as human diseases is no doubt crucial to understand the
molecular mechanisms and to develop effective therapeutics. Because of the
complexity of the networks and the small number of available functional
experiments, in-silico modeling of the underpinning molecular network is
challenging. Beyond the structure, the eventual predict of a gene or protein’s
function requires accurate mathematical models to parameterize the structure.
However, current mainstream algorithms, such as reverse-engineering algorithms,
inevitably bear the following disadvantages: i) Structure prediction accuracy
is limited due to the availability of functional data. ii) Unable to make
accurate quantitative predictions based on the learned network structure. 

<Topics and Scope>

This workshop encourages novel algorithms addressing one or
more of the following problems:

- Improve networks structure learning accuracy; 

-Generating accurate quantitative predictions on network
behaviors (with known structure) in a relative large biological network;

-Inferring network structure and/or parameters by
integrating various types of biological data.




Full paper submission should follow the format of The 2010
World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
WORLDCOMP’10. General information about the conference and format instruction
(IEEE style) can be found at the conference website:

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by three independent
experts and a decision will be to recommend to the workshop chair based on the
paper’s originality, significance, clarity, impact and soundness.

If you intend to submit a paper to this special session and
workshop, please send your paper to Dr. Rui Chang (chang.rui at hotmail.com).


All accepted papers will be published in the conference
proceedings in both printed book and online version. The conference proceedings
will be will be indexed in Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering and
Technology, DBLP / Computer Science Bibliography, and others. The printed
proceedings will be available for distribution on site at the conference.



Please send you paper to Dr. Rui Chang no later than March,
20th, 2010. Notification of acceptance will be send via email by
April, 5th, 2010.
