Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Development of deep learning methods for biological and clinical data
* Novel methods and frameworks for mining and integrating big biological data
* Discovering biological networks and pathways underlying biological processes and diseases
* Analysis, discovery of biomarkers and mutations, and disease risk assessment
* Comparative genomics
* Metagenome analysis using sequencing data
* RNA-seq and microarray-based gene expression analysis
* Genome-wide analysis of non-coding RNAs
* Genome-wide regulatory motif discovery
* Structural bioinformatics
* Automated annotation of genes and proteins
* Discovery of structural variations from next-generation sequencing (NGS) data
* Correlating NGS with proteomics data analysis
* Discovery of genotype-phenotype associations
* Building predictive models for complex phenotypes
* Functional annotation of genes and proteins
* Cheminformatics
* Special biological data management techniques
* Privacy and security issues in mining genomic databases
* Information visualization and visual analytics for biomedical data
* Predictive modeling for personalized treatment

IMPORTANT DATES
--------------------
Submission Due: May 5, 2019
Notification Date: June 1, 2019
Workshop Date: August 5, 2019


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
--------------------------
We solicit the submission of papers in the following three categories:

* Regular: original papers without duplicate submission, with quality ones invited to publish in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB). Papers should be at most 10 pages in length, and using ACM Proceedings Format (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template) is recommended.

* Abstract: 1-page limit, for introducing preliminary research outcomes, with emphasis research effectiveness on real-world datasets.

* Late-Breaking Research: submission of a published manuscript (at least in arXiv) along with additional supplemental/unpublished data, to highlight the work’s impact.

All papers will be peer-reviewed. If accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to present their work. The papers should be in PDF format and submitted via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=biokdd2019
