Call for Papers:

Understanding biological systems as computational devices situates at the intersection of Bio aspects and Computational aspects. BioComputation encompasses computation aspects related to living universe. The data on living universe reached a high volume (Big Data) and only a small fraction could be considered until the high computation power and large size storage became available. Cloud and GPU (Graphical Process Units) technologies allow a great level of parallelism and resource sharing, making it possible to process such large data. However, context-sensitivity, privacy, legal/regulatory aspects, as well as specific requirements for dedicated applications (healthcare, wearable/implantable devices) are concerns to still be solved. Large-scale BioComputation benefits from Big Data-oriented solutions and signs to overpass nowadays challenges are high.

BIOCOMPUTATION 2015, The International Symposium on Big Data and BioComputation, is dedicated to advances and challenges on the following topics.

Topics:

Big Data and Context-sensitive Computation
Big Data and Cloud Technology and Services in BioComputation
Big Data, Cloud computing and GPU (Graphical Process Units) for BioComputation
Scale-up and high-performance techniques for data-centric BioComputation
Big Data and Prediction Computational Models
Big Data Computation Applications
Big Data and Evolution Models
Big Data and BioStatistics
Big Data and Personalized Healthcare Computation
Big Data in Genome Analytics
Big Data and Computation on Illness Patterns/Variations (cancer, diabetes, etc.)
Big Data and Donor Information
Big Data and Drugs-related Computation
Big Data and Health/eHealth/Telemedicine Computation
Big Data and Computation in Clinical Context
Big Data and BioImage Computation
Big Data and Molecular Modeling
Big Data and Computational Physics
Big Data and Biological Systems
Big Data and Scalability of BioComputation Tools
Big Data and Trusted Bio-Datasets
Big Data BioComputation and Regulator Borders

Details on contributions and proposals.

FORMATS

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here. Latex templates are also available.

Slides-based contributions can use the corporate/university format and style.

Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.

Once you receive the notification of contribution acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

We would recommend that you should not use too many extra pages, even if you can afford the extra fees. No more than 2 contributions per event are recommended, as each contribution must be separately registered and paid for. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to ensure that the paper will be included in the conference proceedings and in the digital library, or posted on the www.iaria.org (for slide-based contributions).

Submit a Paper:

First, fill out the submission form with information about your paper. Please, fill it out only once for each paper, and do not resubmit it. Contact the address below if you run into any difficulties.

As the designated correspondence author, you will then receive a first e-mail message containing the paper ID. The information in the email will allow you to submit your paper.

If you have some problems send your paper via this e-mail (please report your paper ID in the text of your mail AND the name of the conference).

The conference staff will contact you only if the paper does not print properly or has other problems.

You can change information about your paper, submit brief corrections, view an email trail, and even edit your personal information by following the link in the initial confirmation email.

Every participant must register separately: if two co-authors attend, each of them has to register

Support letters for entry visa will only be issued to attendees who have successfully paid their registration fees in full.

 

Registration form:

The registration form can be found here.

Note: If you attend but do not have a paper to present, use paper number "guest" in the registration form.

Note: For any registration related questions, please contact annemarie@vicov.com or by fax at 1-302-397-2096

Support letters

It is solely the responsibility of the participants and their corporations/universities to obtain the necessary travel visa.
The association can only issue a support letter stating that a registered participant has an accepted paper and that the participant is expected to have an oral presentation.
