7th IEEE International Conference on Computational Advances in Bio and Medical Sciences (ICCABS)

October 19-21, 2017, Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel, Orlando, FL, USA

Advances in high-throughput technologies such as DNA sequencing and mass spectrometry are profoundly transforming life sciences, resulting in the collection of unprecedented amounts of biological and medical data. Using this data to advance our knowledge about fundamental biological processes and improve human health requires novel computational models and advanced analysis algorithms. IEEE ICCABS aims to bring together leading academic and industry researchers to discuss the latest advances in computational methods for bio and medical sciences.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to: Biological Big Data Analytics, Biological modeling and simulation, Biomedical image processing, Biomedical data and literature mining, Computational genetic epidemiology, Computational metabolomics, Computational proteomics, Databases and ontologies, Gene regulation, Genome analysis, Health Informatics, High-performance bio-computing, Immunoinformatics, Molecular evolution, Population genomics, Sequence analysis, Structural bioinformatics, Systems biology and Transcriptomics.

Two special issues of journals (BMC Bioinformatics and BMC Genomics) on selected extended abstracts will be published. A limited number of student travel awards will be made. This year we also plan to have review sessions where researchers get to present their results (possibly published in other venues). These results will not appear in the proceedings.

ICCABS 2017 plans to support some number of student travel grants. In particular, this money can be used for the following items:

  • Registration fee
  • Hotel accommodation
  • Airfare
  • Food and other expenses

The applicants should submit the following materials to Sanguthevar Rajasekaran (rajasek@engr.uconn.edu) before October 1, 2017 by 5PM EST. Preference will be given to students presenting their works in the conference (including the workshops)

  • Number and title of a paper or poster that has been accepted (if any) to ICCABS
  • A brief summary of the research interests of the student together with an explanation of how this conference will help her/his research efforts
  • A support letter from the student's supervisor/advisor that indicates that the student is in good academic standing and how the student will benefit from attending this conference
  • An estimate on the total expenses and availability of other sources of funding
