2012 Workshop on Nanoinformatics for Biomedicine

October 4-7, 2012, Philadelphia, PA, USA

In conjunction with
2012 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM 2012)

Call For Papers (PDF)

The application of nanotechnology in biomedicine offers innovative approaches to disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention. To address the ever-growing information needs of nanomedicine, nanoinformatics is playing an important role in acquiring relevant data/information, conceptually organizing information for conversion to knowledge, and developing computing applications that are based on important parameters at the nanoscale and applicable in a broad health perspective.

This workshop aims to provide a forum for discussion on all the aspects of nanoinformatics to support biomedical research and advance knowledge on nanomaterial-biological interactions. The organizers are inviting participants to submit papers with unpublished and original research.

All accepted papers will be published in proceedings by IEEE. Selected papers will be invited for publication in special issues of related journals.

Research topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Nanomedicine
  • Nanoinformatics
  • Nanomaterial-biological interactions
  • Modeling and simulation
  • Computational biology/chemistry/medicine
  • Computational toxicology
  • Databases and repositories
  • Data standards and Interoperability
  • Data mining and knowledge discovery
  • Text and literature mining
  • Translational research
  • Risk assessment and regulation
  • Surveillance systems
  • Ethical and social issues
  • Others

Deadlines:

August 6, 2012: Paper submission deadline
August 27, 2012: Notification of paper acceptance
September 7, 2012: Camera-ready paper submission deadline
