Workshop on Computational Advances in Molecular Epidemiology (CAME 2011)

held in conjunction with the

5th IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM 2011)

Atlanta, GA, November 12-15, 2011


Molecular epidemiology is an integrative scientific discipline that 
considers molecular biological processes in specific epidemiological 
settings. It relates molecular biological events to etiology, 
distribution and prevention of disease in human populations. Over years, 
molecular epidemiology has became extensively fused with mathematical 
and computational science and immensely benefitted from this tight 
association. The CAME workshop aims to bring together field 
practitioners of molecular epidemiology, molecular evolutionists, 
population geneticists, medical researchers, bioinformaticians, 
statisticians and computer scientists interested in the latest 
developments in algorithms, mining, visualization, modeling, simulation 
and other methods of computational, statistical and mathematical 
analysis of genetic and molecular data in the epidemiological context.

We invite submissions of papers presenting original research on 
mathematical and computational approaches to molecular epidemiology. 
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

     * Analysis of next generation sequencing data
     * Analysis of mass spectrometry data
     * Evaluation of quasispecies
     * Phylogenetics of pathogens
     * Computational support to disease surveillance
     * Identification of pathogen transmission events
     * Computational approaches to pathogen evolution
     * Identification of novel markers of disease
     * Population dynamics and drug-resistance
     * Metagenomic analysis

Papers of at most 8 pages in IEEE 2-column format should be submitted 
electronically at


All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Accepted 
papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, and 
extended version of selected papers will be invited to a special issue 
of In Silico Biology.
