The 1st International Workshop on Bioinformatics and Security (BIOS 06) 
In Conjunction with ARES 2006
Vienna, Austria
20-22 April, 2006
Call for Papers
Technological advances in high-throughput techniques and efficient data
gathering methods coupled with a world wide effort in computational
biology have
resulted in a vast amount of life science data often available in
and heterogeneous repositories. These repositories contain interesting
information such as sequence and structure data, annotations for
biological data,
results of complex and expensive computations, bio-medical publications,
and so
on. Newer and more sophisticated computational techniques to analyze
such data
are also being developed and made available for public use at a rapid
Nonetheless, the multiplicity in the objectives, methods,
representation, and
platforms of these data sources and analysis tools have created an
urgent and
immediate need for research in resource integration and platform
processing of investigative queries involving heterogeneous data sources
analysis tools. It is now universally recognized that a database
approach to
analysis and management of biological data offers a convenient, high
level, and
efficient alternative to high volume biological data processing and
Advances in database integration, query processing, web technology, work
systems, and object-orientation can be leveraged to develop novel
high-performance data management systems for biological applications.
But also
security is very important in this area and therefore this workshop has
two focuses.
Topics of interest lie at the intersection of general bioinformatics and
security research. Following is a nonexclusive list of topics of
interest for
this year.
* Security for grid computing in the field of bioinformatics 
* Information security development processes for sensitive (medical)
* Securing medical data (Information, Data and System
* Digital Rights Management for medical stored data 
* Complex relational database management system, with
object-oriented extensions and numerous application driven enhancements 
* Web and Wireless Security Bioinformatics and Medical
* Usability and security needs of complex systems 
* Innovative approaches for securing medical data (access
management, authentication, data protection, etc.) 
* Information Security Management
