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 Integrity) 
*	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
