6th IAPR Conference on Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics

November 2-4 2011, Delft, The Netherlands

Website: http://prib2011.org/
Registration is open and the preliminary program is available.

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. Relevant research areas 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

Accepted papers are published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics series (LNBI).
