DTMBIO 11 - Call for participation


5th ACM International Workshop on Data and Text Mining in Biomedical Informatics (DTMBIO)

in conjunction with the 20th ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM)

October 24th, 2011
Glasgow, Scotland

(Early bird registration until 31st August 2011)


Biological researchers face the current challenge of making effective use of the enormous amount of electronic biomedical data in order to better understand and explain complex biological systems. The biomedical data repositories include data in a wide variety of forms, including bibliographic information from electronic medical journals, gene expression data from Microarray experiments, protein identification and quantification data from proteomics experiments, genomic sequences gathered by the Human Genome Project, and patient healthcare records. The ability to automatically and effectively extract, integrate, understand and make use of information embedded in such heterogeneous structured and unstructured data remains a challenging task.
