Event Type: 



6th IEEE International Conference on Computational

Advances in Bio and Medical Sciences (ICCABS)

October 13-15, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA

Advances in high-throughput technologies such as DNA sequencing and mass spectrometry are profoundly transforming life sciences, resulting in the collection of unprecedented amounts of biological and medical data. Using this data to advance our knowledge about fundamental biological processes and improve human health requires novel computational models and advanced analysis algorithms. IEEE ICCABS aims to bring together leading academic and industry researchers to discuss the latest advances in computational methods for bio and medical sciences.

This year program will include regular papers and posters. In addition, we also have the following two workshops:

6th Workshop on Computational Advances for Next Generation Sequencing (CANGS 2016) and 5th Workshop on Computational Advances in Molecular Epidemiology (CAME 2016)

There will be three Plenary Keynote Talks from:

  • Russel Schwartz (CMU)
  • May Wang (Georgia Tech and Emory University)
  • Cathy H. Wu (Univ. of Delaware)

There will also be seven Plenary Invited Talks from:

  • Mukul Bansal (Univ. of Connecticut)
  • Krishna Karuturi (Jackson Lab)
  • Yury Khudyakov (CDC)
  • Yuk Yee Leung (Univ. of Pennsylvania)
  • Rahul Singh (San Francisco State University)
