CFP – 6th IAPR Conference on Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics

6th IAPR Conference on Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics
November 2-4 2011, Delft, The Netherlands



• Paper submission June 19, 2011

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
• Bio-imaging
• 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


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.
