First International Workshop on           

 Data Mining and Bioinformatics (DMBIO2005)


                    In conjunction with the

2005 International Conference on Computational Science and its Applications

            Singapore, May 09-12, 2005




Workshop Objectives

In recent years, high-throughput experimental methods in molecular biology have resulted in enormous amounts of data. Mining biological data is an emerging area of intersection between bioinformatics and data mining. The objective of this workshop is to facilitate collaboration between data mining researchers and bioinformaticians by presenting cutting edge research topics and methodologies in the area of data mining for bioinformatics.  We encourage papers that propose novel data mining techniques for tasks such as:

  • Microarray data  analysis
  • Protein/RNA structure prediction
  • Genomics and Proteomics
  • Drug design
  • Biomedical literature data mining 
  • Modeling of biochemical pathways
  • Whole, multiple genome comparison
  • Biological data visualization
  • Phylogenetics
  • Biomedical  ontologies
  • System biology and pathways
  • Biological database management


Paper Submission and Review

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers submitted to the workshop will undergo a peer-review process.


Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by Springer-Verlag as part of their Lecture Notes in

Computer Science series. For initial submissions, authors are strongly encouraged to use Springer's manuscript submission guidelines

at  Selected papers from the workshop will be published as a book in the SEBI series (Science, Engineering and Biology Informatics Series).



Research papers should not exceed 5000 words. Short papers describing early research results are also welcome.  Papers should be submitted in electronic form (Standard Postscript, PDF, doc) via E-mail to
