Call for Papers
What is Bioinformatics and Computational Biology?
Bioinformatics is the use of computational methods to help manage, process, or organize biological data. Computational biology is the application of computational methods to model, explore, and create further understanding of biological phenomena. Artificial intelligence has made a significant contribution to these areas, and some problems from these areas continue to drive new discoveries in AI, in high performance computing, and in mathematical analysis.
What kind of studies will be of interest?
The special track will be devoted to bioinformatics and computational biology with the aim of presenting new and important contributions in this area. The areas include, but are not limited to, the following: applications such as genomics, bioinformatics, protein modeling, sequence analysis, population modeling, computational biology, biological database mining; modeling algorithms such as hidden Markov, neural networks, statistical methods, or probabilistic methods; case studies in areas of application, or over different algorithms and approaches; feature presentation, extraction, and selection such as molecular fingerprinting; post-processing techniques such as visualization, summarization, or trending; or other biological research which is related to artificial intelligence.
Other tracks at FLAIRS that may be on interest to those submitting to this track include Learning in Intelligent Systems and Datamining, in a total of 13 special tracks that accompany the main conference.
Submission Guidelines for the track
Interested authors must submit completed manuscripts by November 22, 2009. Submissions should be no more than 6 pages (approx. 4000 words) in length, including figures. Anonymous author names and affiliations must be used on submitted papers, to provide double-blind reviewing. Papers must be submitted as a PDF through the EasyChair conference system. (Note: Do not use an anonymous name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers.) Papers should be formatted according to AAAI Guidelines. Submission instructions can be found at the FLAIRS-2010 website given above. Notification of acceptance will be mailed around January, 2010. Authors of accepted papers will be expected to submit the final camera-ready copies of their full papers by February, 2010 for publication in the conference proceedings which will be published by AAAI Press.
