Call for Papers: 2014 IEEE Nanoinformatics Workshop

Written by: 

The 3rd Workshop on Nanoinformatics for Environmental Health and Biomedicine
held in conjunction with
2014 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM2014)
November 2-5, Belfast, UK

The 3rd Workshop on Nanoinformatics for Environmental Health and Biomedicine is a global forum for researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to present and share their research findings, ideas, developments, and applications at a top quality IEEE International Conference (BIBM 2014).

We are pleased to invite you to submit papers (up to 8 pages in IEEE 2-column format) from any aspect of Nanoinformatics to NanoInfo2014. All accepted papers will be published in the IEEE BIBM Workshop Proceedings and will be included in IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Selected papers will be invited for publication in a Special Issue of Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology, a High Impact (SCI: 2.374) Open Access journal of No Publication Fees in the broad areas of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.

Topics of the workshop include (but are not limited to):
 - Data management and database development for nanomaterials
 - Ontology and meta-data design for nanomaterial data
 - Nanomaterial data standards and interoperation/sharing protocols
 - Nanomaterial characterization (i.e., physicochemical/structural properties)
 - Text/Literature mining for nanomaterial data collection and integration
 - Analysis/Quantification for nano-images (e.g., TEM images of nanomaterials, images generated from in-vivo high-throughput screening of nano-bioactivity)
 - Assessment of the value of information in nanomaterial data
 - Data mining/Machine learning for nanomaterial data, particularly the development of (quantitative) structure-activity relationships for nanomaterials
 - Simulation for nanomaterial fate & transport, nano-bio interactions
 - Computing applications for nanomedicine (e.g., drug delivery systems (nano-excipient), diagnosis and prevention, and safe disposal of nanomedicine as household goods)
 - Visualization of nanomaterial data
 - Environmental and health risk assessment, life-cycle analysis, and regulatory decision making for nanomaterials
 - Assessment of ethical and social issues of nanotechnology
 - Infrastructure (frameworks/software/tools/resources) for nanoinformatics

Important Dates:
 - Paper submission: September 15, 2014
 - Acceptance notification: September 30, 2014
 - Conference dates: November 2 - 5, 2014
