CALL FOR PAPERS - Special Sessions – CIBB 2013

10th International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods for
Bioinformatics and Biostatistics
(CIBB 2013 – June 20-22)
Chateau de Valrose, Nice, France
June 17-22 2013
[log in to unmask]

Special sessions on
"Data integration and analysis in Omic-Science"
"Knowledge Based Medicine"
"Heterogeneous Computing for Bioinformatics"

Paper submission:
For special sessions there two possible types of papers: extended
abstracts and full papers.
Both are valid for presenting a paper and for being included in the
electronic proceedings.
In case of extended abstracts, a second submission after the conference
is needed to be selected for publication in the Lecture Notes publication.
The length of extended abstracts is of 3 pages, including 5 sections:
1.      Scientific background
2.      Material and methods
3.      Results
4.      Conclusion
5.      Few references (no more than 10)
The format is the same as that of main conference. Please choose the
right track on the submission site. Submission site:

**Deadline for submission**

March 16, 2013


1. "Data integration and analysis in Omic-Science"

*Session scope:*
High-throughput data are growing massively and entering as routinely
tools in biomedical research. However new methods are still needed to
analyze and integrate the massive data sets, to extract knowledge and
biological information and/or to reveal, confirm or confute biological
and clinical hypotheses.
Aim of this special session is to bring together researchers from the
international scientific community interested in this field, to meet
participants to Italian Flagship Project InterOmics to discuss the state
of the art, the advancements and the future perspectives in
bioinformatics and biostatistics for omic-science.

Mario Rosario Guarracino (Istituto di Calcolo e Reti ad Alte
Prestazioni, CNR), Dr. Luciano Milanesi (Istituto di Tecnologie
Biomediche, CNR)

*Invited speakers:*
  - Franck Picard - CNRS, Laboratoire Biometrie et Biologie Evolutive
UCB Lyon 1 - France, Title to be announced.


2. "Knowledge Based Medicine"

*Session Scope:*
Currently, there is a paradigm shift in clinical practice from
Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) to Knowledge-Based Medicine (KBM). In EBM,
the results of population-based research are used to guide clinical
decision making. EBM concepts, like hierarchy of evidence,
meta-analyses, confidence intervals, and study design, offer a stronger
decision support than physicians’ experience alone.
Building on the EBM foundation, the newly emerging KBM goes beyond
evidence and develops intelligent clinical decision support systems
(i-CDSS), which can be integrated in clinical workflow. These are
developed mainly by knowledge discovery techniques, data mining, and
text mining, using computational intelligence and machine learning
methods. Thus, population-based medicine shifts to personalized and
predictive medicine.

This special session aims to bring together researchers from different
backgrounds and domains, providing a casual venue for the discussion of
current developments and applications, potentially leading to a
computational intelligence foundation for Knowledge-Based Medicine.

3. " Heterogeneous Computing for Bioinformatics "

*Session scope:*
Many different innovative techniques have been deployed during the
latest years to improve the total throughput of HPC systems for
Bioinformatics. Different approaches are by the way relying on different
technological backgrounds, and often being not contaminated one to each
other. Most notably the approaches based upon massive computing
(clusters), GPUs, FPGAs and ASICs offer to developers many different
ways to solve the same problems, each one offering peculiar outcomes and
characteristic drawbacks.
Main aim of this session is to cross-fertilize the field of
heterogeneous HPC, by promoting  mutual collaboration of computer
scientists, biologists, numerical analysts, and digital designers, and
thus providing a better overview of inter-disciplinary techniques for
solving challenging -omic problems.
