in conjunction with
the 18th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence: Methodology,
Systems, Applications AIMSA 2018

Varna, Bulgaria, September 12th - 14th, 2018

 

OBJECTIVES

Artificial Intelligence plays an increasingly important role in Bioinformatics enabling discoveries in metagenomics, regulatory genomics, population genomics and diseases, next generation sequencing data processing, etc. Some of the grand challenges in Bioinformatics include protein structure prediction, homology search, gene finding and gene mapping, gene expression data analysis, drug design in pharmaceutical industry, etc. and the intensive application of Artificial Intelligence approaches is expected to address them. From the other side, Bioinformatics provides opportunities for developing novel Artificial Intelligence methods.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together active scholars and practitioners in the frontier of Artificial Intelligence and Bioinformatics and to give them an opportunity to present and discuss their research and to share their knowledge and innovative ideas.

TOPICS

The workshop welcomes submissions of original, high quality papers in all areas of mutual influence of Artificial Intelligence and Bioinformatics, including (but not limited to):
