IEEE International Conference on Computational

Advances in Bio and Medical Sciences (ICCABS)

June 12
-
14, New Orleans, LA, USA


Advances in high
-
throughput technologies such as DNA sequencing and mass spectrometry are
profoundly transforming life sciences, resulting in the collection of unprecedented amounts of
biological and medical data. Using this data to advance our knowledge
about fundamental
biological processes and improve human health requires novel computational models and
advanced analysis algorithms. IEEE ICCABS aims to bring together leading academic and
industry researchers to discuss the latest advances in computatio
nal methods for bio and
medical sciences.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:




Biological modeling and simulation (
Molecular and cellular modeling, stochastic and rule
-
based modeling, modeling languages and systems);



Biomedical image proc
essing (
Image segmentation and classification, visualization,
functional and molecular imaging);



Biomedical data and literature mining (
Data integration, knowledge discovery from
electronic medical records and scientific literature);



Computational genetic
epidemiology (
Linkage and association analysis, gene
-
gene and
gene
-
environment interaction modeling, genetic risk analysis);



Computational metabolomics (
Metabolomics databases, metabolite identification, spectral
analysis, metabolic network modeling);



Comp
utational proteomics (
Peptide identification and quantification, post
-
translational
modifications, protein
-
protein interactions );



Databases and ontologies (
Biomedical data warehouses, database integration, biomedical
ontologies and semantic web services);



Gene regulation (
Regulatory motifs and modules, post
-
transcriptional regulation, regulatory
networks);



Genome analysis (
Genome assembly, genome annotation, comparative genomics,
metagenomics);



Health Informatics (
Medical data management and privacy,
medical recommender systems,
therapy optimization);



High
-
performance bio
-
computing (
Cloud and grid computing, advanced multi
-
core, GPU,
and FPGA biomedical applications);



Immunoinformatics (
Epitope prediction, vaccine design, immune system simulators);



Mol
ecular evolution (
Models of evolution, reconstruction of phylogenetic trees and
networks, comparative genomics);



Population genomics

(Haplotype and recombination analysis, structural genomic variation,
signatures of natural selection);



Sequence analysis

(M
ultiple sequence alignment, motif discovery, sequence search and
clustering);



Structural bioinformatics

(RNA and protein structure prediction and classification,
molecular docking, RNA and protein design);



Systems biology

(Systems approaches to molecular b
iology, multi
-
scale modeling, biological
networks, synthetic biology);



Transcriptomics (
Microarray and sequencing
-
based transcriptome profiling, novel transcript
discovery, alternative splicing, non
-
coding RNA analysis).
