Announcement and call for papers:

Data Mining for Biomedical Informatics, a full-day workshop, to be held in
conjunction with the 7th SIAM International Conference on Data Mining (SDM
2007) in Minneapolis, MN on April 28, 2007. For detailed information about
the workshop see http://www.cs.rpi.edu/DMBIO/.

Biology is rich in data, and is getting richer all the time. Deriving "big
pictures from this sea of biomedical data" is a major scientific challenge
that will require the close collaboration of computer scientists,
biologists, and mathematicians.  This workshop will provide a venue to
facilitate more interaction between the SIAM Data Mining community and the
numerous organizations that generate biomedical data, in order to promote
joint research on topics that are relevant to both communities.  We expect
this workshop to attract a mixture of academics and data mining
practitioners, whose focus is the analysis of biomedical data.  Submitted
papers should have a maximum length of six (6) pages.  Papers must have an
abstract of no more than 200 words.  Brief survey articles, that expose the
results of more than one paper to an interdisciplinary audience and that are
relevant to the goals of the workshop, are particularly encouraged.

Important dates:

Paper submissions: Friday, February 2, 2007
Notification: Monday, February 12, 2007
Camera ready: Monday, February 19, 2007

Workshop organizers:

Petros Drineas (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute), Vipin Kumar (University
of Minnesota), Michael W. Mahoney (Yahoo! Research)
