Call for Papers

 

 

 

Recent advances in high-throughput technologies for measuring gene expressions and protein interactions have enabled more comprehensive and systematic studies of living systems. Network models play crucial roles in understanding the complex interactions in biological systems, and the inference and analysis of biological networks and network-based analysis of measurement data have shown strong potentials for unveiling the key mechanisms of complex diseases as well as for designing improved therapeutic strategies. At the same time, the inference and analysis of complex biological networks pose new exciting challenges for computer science, signal processing, control, and statistics. The International Workshop on Computational Network Biology: Modeling, Analysis, and Control (CNB-MAC), which will be held in conjunction with the 5th ACM International Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB 2014), aims to provide an international scientific forum for presenting recent advances in computational network biology that involve modeling, analysis, and control of biological networks and systematic analysis of large-scale “OMICS” data. CNB-MAC 2014 solicits (1) original research papers that report new research results that have not been published elsewhere, (2) poster abstracts for rapid dissemination of the latest research findings, and (3) “highlights” that present recent advances in the field that have been reported in recent journal publications. The main emphasis of the workshop will be on rigorous mathematical or computational approaches in studying biological networks and analyzing large-scale biological data.

 

Topics of Interest include (but are not limited to):

 

·      Inference of biological networks and pathways

·      Mathematical modeling and simulation of biological networks and pathways

·      Network and pathway-based analysis of OMICS data

·      Network dynamics and network control

·      Detection, modeling, and analysis of regulatory modules in biological networks

·      Network-based prediction of drug response and potential drug targets

·      Pathways and networks in complex diseases

·      Systematic approaches for disease diagnosis and prognosis

·      Incorporation of prior knowledge in biological system and data analysis

 

 

 

 

 

Paper and Abstract Submission

 

 

 

All paper and abstract submissions should be made through the EasyChair online submission system at the following URL: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cnbmac2014

 

 

 

Research Papers

 

 

CNB-MAC welcomes original research papers that have not been published before and are not currently under review by another conference or journal. Full-length research papers should not exceed 8 pages in ACM template (double column, US letter) including all figures, tables, and references (see ACM templates: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates).

 

 

 

Poster Abstracts

 

 

We invite authors to submit poster abstracts to present their latest research findings at the workshop. Submissions should include the poster title, a 250-word abstract describing the main results, the list of authors, their affiliations, and their contact information.

 

 

 

Highlights

 

 

We also invite the submission of abstracts of papers that have been published in a peer-reviewed journal after January 1, 2013 or papers that are “in press” at the time of submission. Submissions must include the title and abstract of the paper, its full citation information, and a link to the full paper on the journal website. The submission should also include the list of authors, their affiliations, and their contact information.
