International Symposium on Biomedical Data Infrastructure (BDI 2013)

Amandeep S. Sidhu

International Symposium on Biomedical Data Infrastructure (BDI 2013)

30 - 31 January 2013

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Proceedings to be published by Springer

Due to the emerging demands of huge amounts of biomedical data, new and improved data management capabilities are required for supporting a wide range of applications. Current Biomedical Databases are independently administered in geographically distinct locations, lending them almost ideally to adoption of intelligent data management approaches. As a result next generation of information infrastructure and data integration capabilities are needed to ensure increasing infrastructure agility required for high-throughput biomedical research. The workshop will focus on research issues, problems and opportunities in Biomedical Data Infrastructure.

Topics of Interest are:

* Big Biomedical Data and its Management
* Biomedical Data integration and Interoperability
* Next Generation Sequencing Data
* Biomedical Image Analysis
* Medical Informatics and Translational Bioinformatics
* Biomedical Ontologies
* Semantic Web Tools and Techniques for Biomedicine
* Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 Applications in Biomedicine
* Novel architectural models for HPC and cloud computing in Biomedicine
* New parallel / concurrent programming models for High Performance Biomedical Applications in Cloud
* Biomedical Data Cloud
* Interoperability between different Utility Computing Platforms used for Biomedicine
* Performance monitoring for biomedical applications in HPC and Cloud
* Biomedical Infrastructure as a Service
* Biomedical Platforms as a Service
* Biomedical Software as a Service
* Scientific workflows in bioinformatics and biomedicine
* Data Mining in Biomedicine
* Computational Systems Biology
