[Bioscys-Africa] [ISBRA-L] ODGEA08 -- submission deadline extended to Jan. 14, 2008

ISBRA Symposium Announcements isbra-l at engr.uconn.edu
Tue Jan 1 22:05:47 EST 2008


1st International Workshop on Optimal Data Mining in Gene Expression
Analysis (ODGEA08)

in conjunction with

International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications

May 6-9, 2008, Atlanta, GA, 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 ChIP-chip 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.
