The International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR) sponsored conference aims to bring together top researchers, practitioners and students from around the world to discuss the applications of pattern recognition methods in the field of bioinformatics to solve problems in the life sciences. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in the research areas of interest to the workshop. These include:

  • Bio-sequence analysis
  • Gene and protein expression analysis
  • 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
  • Bio-imaging

Pattern recognition techniques of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Static, syntactic and structural pattern recognition
  • Data mining, Data based modelling
  • Neural networks, Fuzzy systems
  • Evolutionary computation and swarm intelligence
  • Hidden Markov models, Graphical models
