ICTBI 2012 Call for Papers

The 1st International Conference on Translational Biomedical Informatics (ICTBI), which is planned for 8-10 December 2012 in Taicang, China, has released a call for papers under relevant topics of Translational biomedical informatics and Computational systems medicine.

Translational biomedical informatics is currently developing as a novel discipline to meet the demand on translational medicine research, which analyzes and integrates biomedical data series from medical researches. Computational systems medicine is to use and further apply computational approaches and advances systems biology in order to solve biological problems with overall aiming at improving the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of complex disease. Today, the research activities in these topics have been rapidly progressed because the massive amounts of biological and medical data generated from high throughput technologies, such as next generation sequencing and computational algorithms which can be integrated with the clinical database as well as the other medical knowledge databases.

The papers related to translational biomedical informatics and computational systems medicine are invited to submit to the ICTBI 2012. The interesting topics include, but are not limited to:

Translational biomedical informatics

 Computational modeling and data integration in biomedical research
 High-throughput data analysis in biomedical research
 High-performance computing in biomedical research
 Advanced methods for biomedical signal processing and biomedical image analysis
 Text mining and natural language processing and their applications in biomedical research

Computational systems medicine:

 Systems biology of complex disease
 Complex biological network modeling
 Complex biological systems simulation and visualization in medicine

For the intent of paper submission, the authors are encouraged to read carefully the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/cmmm/guidelines/ for manuscript preparation. Submission of the manuscript should be sent to the following e-mail address: ictbi_paper@hotmail.com before November 20, 2012.

The selected papers for ICTBI 2012 will be recommended to publish in the following journals:
Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology (IF: 2.436)
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jbb/si/363720/cfp/ Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology.doc

Computational and Mathematical Methods in Medicine (IF:0.684)

Note:in order to success submission, you should also submit the article to the Manuscript Tracking System of both journals. For the Computational and Mathematical Methods in Medicine, please select the special issue of "Translational Bioinformatics and Computational Systems Medicine".
