Call for papers: EVENTH INTERNATIONAL MEETING ON COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE METHODS FOR BIOINFORMATICS AND BIOSTATISTICS
Palermo, ITALY -  16-18 September 2010
http://cibb10.pa.icar.cnr.it

The main goal of the CIBB meetings is to provide a forum open to researchers from different disciplines to present and discuss problems concerning  computational techniques in bioinformatics, systems biology and medical informatics with a particular focus on Neural Networks, Machine Learning, Fuzzy Logic, and Evolutionary Computation  methods.

CIBB 2010 is jointly organized by:

. INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bioinformatics

. INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Biopattern

. BBCT IEEE-CIS - Task force on Neural Networks

Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2010 include, but are not limited to:
Sequence analysis, promoter analysis and identification of transcription factor binding sites;

Gene expression data analysis; Methods for the integration of clinical and genetic data;
Algorithms for alternative splicing analysis; Methods for the functional classification of genes;
Methods for the unsupervised analysis, validation and visualization of structures discovered in bio-molecular data;
Prediction of secondary and tertiary protein structures;
Mass spectrometry data analysis in proteomics;
Methods for comparative genomics;
Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis;
Mathematical modelling and simulation of biological systems;
Heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics;
Bio-molecular databases and data mining;
Algorithms for pharmacogenetics;
Bio-medical text mining and imaging;
Methods for diagnosis and prognosis;
Software tools for bioinformatics

The scientific program will include, besides some plenary talks, contributed papers that will be presented in plenary oral or poster sessions. Accepted papers will be  published in the compact disk of conference proceedings. A selection of papers presented at CIBB 2010 will be published a in post conference  olume printed by an international publisher. Moreover, we are planning to publish the best papers in extended form in a special  issue of an international  cientific journal.
