International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications
United Kingdom

International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications

12 September 2014 London, United Kingdom

The event is part of the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2014) at the Guildhall School of Music in London.

The vast amount of content hosted by digital libraries nowadays poses new challenges to the research community. It's no longer enough to make publications available for human readers; enormous value can be derived from opening these catalogues of data to machine reading.

Data mining tools can be used to read scholarly articles, transforming them from lists of words and images into real-world information such as facts, opinions and hypothesis. This can be a great time-saver for researchers, helping them to find important information in huge corpora quickly and easily.

The 3rd International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications, which is collocated with the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2014) September 8 to 12 in London, will explore these possibilities by bringing together people from different backgrounds who are interested in analysing and mining databases of scientific publications. In addition, the conference is open to all those involved in developing systems to enable such analysis, designing new technologies to improve the way research is being done, and supporting the openness and free availability of publications and research data.

Mendeley is co-organizing the event along with CORE, the Open University, Athena Research and Innovation Center, and the European Library/ Europeana .

The audience for the workshop will be a mixture of cross-disciplinary researchers, practitioners from industry and government, open access enthusiasts, and digital library developers.

Together, we will discuss different approaches to addressing the challenges of mining scientific publications, and we're now inviting people to submit their papers online, for inclusion in the programme. Both long papers (up to eight pages in the ACM style) and short papers (not exceeding four pages) are welcome, as are practical demonstrations and presentation of systems and methods (demonstration submissions should consist of a two-page description of the system, method or tool).The workshop will be structured around three main themes:

The whole ecosystem of infrastructures, including repositories, aggregators, text-and data-mining facilities, impact monitoring tools, datasets, services and APIs that enable analysis of large volumes of scientific publications.

Semantic enrichment of scientific publications by means of text-mining, crowdsourcing or other methods.

Analysis of large databases of scientific publications to identify research trends, high impact, cross-fertilisation between disciplines, research excellence etc.

Big Data in Life Sciences

In conjunction with the ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Health Informatics

Saturday, September 20, 2014 Newport Beach, California

The ever-growing volume and diversity of biological and biomedical data collections continues to pose new challenges and increasing demands on computing and data management. The inherent complexity of this Big Data forces us to rethink how we collect, store, combine and analyze it. BigLS, pronounced "Beagles", is a workshop dedicated to the broad theme of Big Data in life sciences. The goal of the workshop is to bring together leading researchers and practitioners working on a diverse range of Big Data problems relating to biology and medicine, and engage them in a discussion about current Big Data problems, the state of computational tools and analytics, the challenges and the future trends within life sciences. In this context, the workshop focus is on, yet is not limited to, the following broad themes:

Scalable algorithms and techniques for Big Data analytics in molecular biology

Statistical and integrative approaches to Big Data biology and informatics

High performance computing methods and software for Big Data biology

Scientific workflows and platforms for Big Data in life sciences

Software and hardware solutions for managing Big Data in biomedical informatics

Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing

Big Island of Hawaii -- January 4-8, 2015

The twentieth Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB), will be held January 4-8, 2015 at the Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island of Hawaii. PSB will bring together top researchers from North America, the Asian Pacific nations, Europe and around the world to exchange research results and address open issues in all aspects of computational biology. PSB will provide a forum for the presentation of work in databases, algorithms, interfaces, visualization, modeling and other computational methods, as applied to biological problems, with emphasis on applications in data-rich areas of molecular biology. PSB intends to attract a balanced combination of computer scientists and biologists, presenting significant original research, demonstrating computer systems, and facilitating formal and informal discussions on topics of importance to computational biology.

To provide focus for the very broad area of biological computing, PSB is organized into a series of specific sessions. Each session will involve both formal research presentations and open discussion groups.

• Cancer Panomics: Computational methods and infrastructure for integrative analysis of cancer high-throughput "omics" data to enable precision oncology

• Characterizing the Importance of Environmental Exposures, Interactions between the Environment and Genetic Architecture, and Genetic Interactions: New Methods for Understanding the Etiology of Complex Traits and Disease

• Crowdsourcing and Mining Crowd Data

• Including the Public in Research Projects: The impact on informatics from emerging global health research paradigms

• Personalized medicine: from genotypes, molecular phenotypes and the quantified self, towards improved medicine

• Cancer Pathways: Automatic Extraction, Representation, and Reasoning in the Big Data Era

Enabling Genomic Technologies and Screening Asia 2014

Enabling Genomic Technologies and Screening Asia 2014

11th and 12th of September 2014 Singapore 

Select Biosciences South East Asia is delighted to announce that our Enabling Genomic Technologies and Screening Asia Conference and Exhibition will take place at the Biopolis, Singapore on the 11th and 12th September 2014.

We are honoured to have Dr. Hakim Djaballah, Director of the High-Throughput Drug Screening Facility, at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center as our Conference Chairman.

We are hosting the event at A*STAR’s state of the art conference facilities within the Biopolis, the Biomedical Science hub for Singapore. The event will have two concurrent conference tracks, with presentations from the leading scientists within these fields.

The first conference track will cover Enabling Genomic Technologies and we are proud to welcome both Professor David Virshup and Dr. Kosuke Yusa as our Keynote Speakers for the meeting. Professor Virshup is the inaugural Director of the Cancer and Stem Cell Biology Program at the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore.
