International Conference on Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics
Delft, The Netherlands, November 2-4 2011

Call for Papers

In modern biology, high-throughput measurement devices allow scientists 
to gather data at unprecedented rates. To make sense of this data, 
computational biologists and system biologists construct quantitative 
models, many of which depend on pattern recognition techniques. Their 
application is challenging due to the large volumes of data and 
background information, noisy measurements and target outputs, highly 
diverse data types etc.

The Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics conference series aims to 
bring together  researchers, practitioners and students from around the 
world to present and discuss recent developments and applications of 
pattern recognition methods in current bioinformatics, computational 
biology and systems biology. Authors are invited to submit full papers 
in relevant research areas, which include but are not limited to:

     Bio-sequence analysis
     Gene and protein expression analysis
     Biomarker discovery
     Protein structure and interaction prediction
     Motifs and signal detection
     Metabolic modelling and analysis
     Systems and synthetic biology
     Pathway and network analysis
     Immuno- and chemo-informatics
     Evolution and phylogeny
     Biological databases, integration and visualisation

Pattern recognition techniques of interest include:

     Statistical, syntactic and structural pattern recognition
     Datamining and data-based modeling
     Evolutionary computation
     Bayesian networks and graphical models
     Neural networks and fuzzy systems

Submission, Publication and Grants

Papers should be submitted electronically through the conference 
website. We will work with Springer to publish accepted papers in its 
Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics series (LNBI). A limited number of Ph.D. 
student travel grants will be made available; please keep an eye on the 
website for more information.
