Call for Paper


2007 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (IEEE BIBM 2007)

(co-locatedwith IEEE/WCI/ACM WI-IAT 07 and IEEE GrC 07)


San Jose, CA, USA††† Nov 2-4, 2007


IEEE BIBM 2007 will provide a general forum for disseminating the latest research in bioinformatics and biomedicine. It is a multidisciplinary conference that brings together academic and industrial scientists from computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics and statistics. It will exchange research results and address open issues in all aspects of bioinformatics and biomedicine andprovide a forum for the presentation of work indatabases, algorithms, interfaces, visualization, modeling, simulation, ontologyand other computational methods, as applied to life scienceproblems, with emphasis on applications in high throughput data-rich areas in biology, biomedical engineering. IEEE BIBM 2007†† intends to attract a balanced combination of computer scientists, biologists, biomedical engineers, chemist, data analyzer, statistician.
