2nd International Workshop on Optimal Data Mining in Gene Expression 

held in conjunction with

5th International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications

May 13-16, 2009
Nova Southeastern University, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA

The rapid development of several high-throughput gene expression 
monitoring technologies in the past decade has facilitated the generation 
of a huge amount of gene expression data. The data could either be rich or 
poor in the number of samples in a wide variety of experimental design 
setups. Aforementioned factors led to a need to develop suitable 
statistical procedures for optimal analysis, visualization and 
interpretation of the data. We are soliciting original research papers 
(including significant works in progress) involving gene expression 
analysis, including the following:

A. Novel supervised and unsupervised analysis and visualization

B. Novel experimental designs, problems and suitable procedures
    to solve them

C. Optimal feature selection for tumor classification and
    patient-outcome prediction

D. Integrative analysis of gene expression data obtained from
    different platforms and laboratories

E. Interpretation of gene expression data with other datasets
    such as binding site data, copy number data and proteomics data

F. Significance assessment of predictions


The workshop proceedings will be published along with the ISBRA 
proceedings in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics series. 
Papers must be submitted electronically by following the instructions at: 

Submissions must be formatted using the Springer LNCS style and must not 
exceed 12 pages in length. Simultaneous submission to journals or other 
conferences with published proceedings is not allowed. Further, it is 
anticipated that a special issue of a major bioinformatics journal will be 
devoted to extended versions of best conference and workshop papers.
