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
distributed 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 pace.

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
independent processing of investigative queries involving heterogeneous data
sources and 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 management.

Advances in database integration, query processing, web technology, work
flow 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 these 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) data 

* 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 Diagnosis 

* Usability and security needs of complex systems 

* Innovative approaches for securing medical data (access management,
authentication, data protection, etc.) 

* Information Security Management
