International Workshop: Database Technology for Life Sciences and Medicine, DBLM 2012
In conjunction with 23rd DEXA Conference, September, 3-7 2012, Vienna, Austria
Call for Papers
Life sciences and medicine are very data intensive disciplines. Modern technologies such as micro-arrays, high-throughput mass-spectrometry, high-resolution imaging, and huge literature databases provide new challenges for scientists and medical practitioners. There has never been more potentially available information to study biological systems like cells, organs, or patients. However, it is a non-trivial task to transform the vast amount of biomedical data into useful information supporting scientific progress and/or patient management. Major challenges for research in the database community include but are not limited to:
- Data quality, selection and integration,
- Database-supported process management in healthcare,
- Electronic patient record,
- Design of information systems and data warehouses for biological and medical applications,
- Mining biological and medical data: clustering, classification, rule-mining,
- Integrative mining of heterogeneous data types,
- Integration of data mining primitives into biological and medical databases,
- Databases and data mining for systems biology and personalized medicine,
- Biological and medical image processing and -retrieval,
- Privacy in data management and data mining.
Papers should be submitted in PDF format, with maximum length five (5) two-column pages, following IEEE Conference Publishing Service (CPS) guidelines. Please submit your papers using ConfDriver Conference Management System .
- Submission deadline: April, 16 2012.
- Notification of acceptance: May, 18 2012.
- Camera ready deadline: May, 27 2012.
- Workshop day: Between September 3 and 7 2012 in Vienna, Austria.
