International Symposium on Biomedical Data Infrastructure (BDI 2013)

30 - 31 January 2013

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Proceedings to be published by Springer

Due to the emerging demands of huge amounts of biomedical data, new and
improved data management capabilities are required for supporting a wide
range of applications. Current Biomedical Databases are independently
administered in geographically distinct locations, lending them almost
ideally to adoption of intelligent data management approaches. As a result
next generation of information infrastructure and data integration
capabilities are needed to ensure increasing infrastructure agility
required for high-throughput biomedical research. The workshop will focus
on research issues, problems and opportunities in Biomedical Data

Topics of Interest are:

* Big Biomedical Data and its Management
* Biomedical Data integration and Interoperability
* Next Generation Sequencing Data
* Biomedical Image Analysis
* Medical Informatics and Translational Bioinformatics
* Biomedical Ontologies
* Semantic Web Tools and Techniques for Biomedicine
* Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 Applications in Biomedicine
* Novel architectural models for HPC and cloud computing in Biomedicine
* New parallel / concurrent programming models for High Performance
Biomedical Applications in Cloud
* Biomedical Data Cloud
* Interoperability between different Utility Computing Platforms used for
* Performance monitoring for biomedical applications in HPC and Cloud
* Biomedical Infrastructure as a Service
* Biomedical Platforms as a Service
* Biomedical Software as a Service
* Scientific workflows in bioinformatics and biomedicine
* Data Mining in Biomedicine
* Computational Systems Biology

Submission Guidelines:

We welcome original submissions that have not been published and that are
not under review by another conference or journal.  Papers should not
exceed 15 pages excluding references in Springer format. Paper should be
submitted through Easy Chair Online Submission System following
instructions on the website (http://umconference.um.edu.my/BDI2013). All
submissions will be evaluated on their originality, technical soundness,
significance, presentation, and interest to the symposium attendees.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to
