CFP: IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

2012 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (IEEE CIBCB 2012)
May 9-12, 2012, Bahia Resort Hotel, San Diego, CA

Call for Papers
This symposium will bring together top researchers, practitioners, and students from around the world to discuss the latest advances in the field of Computational Intelligence and its application to real world problems in biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, chemical informatics, bioengineering and related fields. Computational Intelligence (CI) approaches include artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary algorithms, hybrid approaches and other emerging techniques.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
- gene expression array analysis
- structure prediction and folding
- molecular sequence alignment and analysis
- metabolic pathway analysis
- RNA and protein folding and structure prediction
- analysis and visualization of large biological data sets
- motif detection
- molecular evolution and phylogenetics
- systems and synthetic biology
- modelling, simulation and optimization of biological systems
- robustness and evolvability of biological networks
- emergent properties in complex biological systems
- ecoinformatics and applications to ecological data analysis
- medical imaging and pattern recognition
- medical image analysis
- biomedical data modelling and mining
- treatment optimisation
- biomedical model parameterisation
- brain computer interface

Submissions will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be indexed in IEEE Xplore. Selected papers after a substantial extension will be considered to publish in journal special issues.

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of no more than eight (8) pages in IEEE conference format, including results, figures and references. Submission details can be found at:
