GENSIPS 2008 : IEEE International Worksh opon Genomic Signal Processing and Statistics
Call For Papers
Recent advances in genomic studies have stimulated synergistic research in many cross-disciplinary areas. Genomic data, especially the recent large-scale microarray gene expression data, present enormous challenges for signal processing and statistics, which has led to the development of the new field of Genomic Signal Processing (GSP). This workshop is the sixth in a series of international scientific meetings devoted to the area of GSP and its applications in biology and medicine. The workshop addresses the emerging need for demonstrating to the signal processing community the potential for using signal-processing and statistical tools to uncover complex biological phenomena. The scientific program will include invited talks, tutorials, contributed papers and poster presentations. Participants will have the opportunity to be exposed to the most recent developments in the field and meet colleagues from all around the world.
AREAS OF INTEREST
Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:
* Signal processing and statistical approaches for functional genomics problems
* Statistical inference of biological networks from experimental data
* Pattern recognition methods for functional genomics
* Control theory and systems theory techniques for systems biology
* Models for cellular metabolism and intercellular signaling
* Modeling and simulation of biological regulatory networks
* Novel architectures and implementation methods for large-scale functional genomics
* High-throughput hardware and software approaches to genome-scale network modeling
* Integration of heterogeneous data
* Microarray image and data analysis
* Signal processing methods in sequence analysis
* Computational methods for modeling and simulation of biological regulatory networks
Prospective authors are invited to submit contributions using the electronic procedure described on the conference website. All submissions must follow the formatting instructions specified on the website. Acceptance of papers will be based on appropriateness of the topic, quality, novelty, and clarity of exposition. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two referees appointed by the Program Committee. At least one author of each accepted submission must be prepared to register and attend the conference.
