Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Bioinformatics | September 11, 2018 | Varna, Bulgaria | CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Bioinformatics - Varna, Bulgaria, September 11th, 2018 in conjunction with the 18th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence: Methodology, Systems, Applications AIMSA 2018, Varna, Bulgaria, September 12th – 14th, 2018

Artificial Intelligence plays an increasingly important role in Bioinformatics enabling discoveries in metagenomics, regulatory genomics, population genomics and diseases, next generation sequencing data processing, etc. Some of the grand challenges in Bioinformatics include protein structure prediction, homology search, gene finding and gene mapping, gene expression data analysis, drug design in pharmaceutical industry, etc. and the intensive application of Artificial Intelligence approaches is expected to address them. From the other side, Bioinformatics provides opportunities for developing novel Artificial Intelligence methods.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together active scholars and practitioners in the frontier of Artificial Intelligence and Bioinformatics and to give them an opportunity to present and discuss their research and to share their knowledge and innovative ideas.

The workshop welcomes submissions of original, high quality papers in all areas of mutual influence of Artificial Intelligence and Bioinformatics, including (but not limited to):

Sequencing data analysis with AI techniques

  • Data mining for variant and error calling
  • AI methods in genome annotation
  • AI approaches in integration of sequencing, clinical and experimental data
  • AI methods in gene expression analysis
  • AI methods for protein structure prediction and drug design
  • Deep learning for precision medicine purposes
  • Information integration and knowledge discovery in bio-medical studies
  • Cluster and classification analysis applications to bio and medical data
  • Intelligent information systems in healthcare
