Hi, Colleagues:

Sorry for crossing-list. Please feel free to distribute the following cfp to
anyone who might be interested. 

9th International Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics (BIOKDD10)
in conjunction with
ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
(SIGKDD'10)

http://bio.informatics.iupui.edu/biokdd10
July 25-28, 2010
Washington DC, USA

The goal of this workshop is to encourage KDD researchers and practitioners
to take on the numerous challenges that Bioinformatics offers. This year the
workshop will feature the theme of "Mining biocomplexity: from molecular
systems to health". Complex biological systems consist of components that
are in themselves complex and interacting with each other. Understanding how
the various components work in concert, using modern high-throughput biology
and data mining methods, is crucial to the ultimate goal of genome-based
economy such as genome medicine and new agricultural and energy solutions.
Applying the study of complex biological systems, health informatics aims to
discover novel and useful patterns in large volumes of health care related
data and to explore the links between disease physiology and molecular
bio-sciences. BIOKDD offers a premier forum of presenting data mining
concepts and tools for integrating data from heterogeneous multimedia
sources, especially those from new high-throughput experimental data
collection technologies, and expediting knowledge discovery in a wide range
of areas including biological, biomedical, pharmaceutical, nursing, clinical
care, dentistry, and public health research.

We encourage papers that propose novel data mining techniques for
post-genome bioinformatics studies in areas such as:

* Phylogenetics and comparative Genomics
* DNA microarray data analysis
* Deep sequencing data analysis 
* RNAi and microRNA analysis
* Protein/RNA structure prediction
* Sequence and structural motif finding
* Modeling of biological networks and pathways
* Statistical learning methods in bioinformatics
* Dynamics modeling for biological networks 
* Computational proteomics
* Computational biomarker discoveries
* Gene-environment, Gene-drug, drug-drug interaction discoveries 
* Computer aided drug discoveries
* Biomedical Text mining
* Biological data management techniques
* Semantic webs and ontology-driven biological data integration methods
* Knowledge discovery in electronic medical records
* Privacy and security issues in mining health databases

Papers should be at most 10 pages long, single-spaced, in font size 10 or
larger with one-inch margins on all sides.  Paper in PDF/PS format should be
submitted to the workshop submission site
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=biokdd10. Camera-ready format
papers may be referenced from previous BIOKDD conference proceedings.

PUBLICATION
------------
The workshop proceeding will be made available online. Selected papers from
the workshop will be invited for consideration for publication in a special
issue of a current bioinformatics journal or as a book chapter. Details of
the journal/book publication will be announced at the web site:
