Workshop Description(Last updated 25 Sep 2002)

Recent advances in experimental tools for computational genomics have led to sharp growth in data resources for bioinformatics problems such as modeling of gene expression and gene-protein interaction. This provides an interesting application domain for intelligent systems that learn graphical models from data for causal modeling, time series simulation and prediction, and classification and regression problems in computational life sciences.

In response, we propose a workshop to bring together researchers in intelligent systems who are interested in:

The emphasis would be on solutions for problems in:

Workshop Audience(Last updated 25 Sep 2002)

This workshop is intended for researchers and practitioners in the area of bioinformatics and uncertain reasoning using graphical models for computational genomics.

Researchers with an interest in machine learning, medical informatics, microbiology, biophysics, and knowledge discovery in databases (KDD) will also find this workshop of interest.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION (Last updated 25 Sep 2002)

Registration for the workshop through the Acapulco conferences is open to ALL attendees of IJCAI-2003.

To be invited to register, send e-mail to: ijcai-2003-bioinformatics@kddresearch.org containing a short (one-paragraph) statement of interests in the areas of bioinformatics and learning graphical models for computational genomics. Please state your current institutional affiliation as well.

Call for Papers and Submission Procedure(Last updated 25 Sep 2002)

We encourage submissions containing original theoretical and applied concepts in artificial intelligence with applications to computational genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. Experimental results are also encouraged, especially on fielded applications, even if they are only preliminary. We therefore invite two categories of paper submissions:

DUAL SUBMISSION POLICY: Submission of short (2-page OR 6-8 page) synopses of articles currently in preparation, under review, or accepted for publication as journals or book chapters is permitted. Submission of full-length papers currently under review for other conferences and workshops is also permitted. However, these papers shall be published in the working notes for this workshop if and only if they are compliant with the dual-submission guidelines of the other conference or workshop.

We request that authors prepare papers in the standard IJCAI format

The first page of submitted papers should include the title; a brief abstract; and author names, affiliations, postal addresses, electronic mail addresses, and telephone and fax numbers.

Papers should be submitted in PostScript, PDF, or Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP file format. Electronic submissions are preferred, but both types of papers may be submitted by one of the following three options:

All submissions should be sent to ijcai-2003-bioinformatics@www.kddresearch.org

Note: If for any reason the e-mail address failed, please use the primary contact's e-mails instead. Thanks.
