International Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics
会议地点: Anchorage, Alaska, United States
Bioinformatics is the science of managing, mining, and interpreting information from biological data, and data mining plays an essential role in addressing the fundamental problems in Biomedical Informatics. The annual BIOKDD workshop is an established forum for researchers and practitioners of Biomedical Informatics and Data Mining to explore cutting-edge techniques and to exchange ideas and experiences. BIOKDD has been successfully held in conjunction with SIGKDD for 17 years.
The goal of the 18th International Workshop on Data Mining in Bioinformatics (BIOKDD'19) is to encourage KDD researchers to tackle the numerous challenges of mining and learning in Bioinformatics, Biomedical and Health Informatics. To embrace SIGKDD 2019's Health Day, the workshop will feature the theme of Data Science Meets Bioinformatics. This field focuses on the use popular Big Data frameworks, data visualization, and effective data mining and machine learning approaches for the analysis of large amounts of heterogeneous complex biological and medical data, together with innovative applications in Bioinformatics and Health Informatics. The key goal is to accelerate the convergence between Data Mining and Biomedical Informatics communities to expedite discoveries in basic biology, medicine and healthcare.
