The 12th Workshop on Biomedical and Bioinformatics Challenges for Computer Science (BBC 2019) is in conjunction with ICCS 2019 (Faro, Algarve, Portugal; 12-14 June, 2019)
Emerging technologies in biomedicine and bioinformatics are generating an increasing amount of complex data. To tackle the growing complexity associated with emerging and future life science challenges, bioinformatics and computational biology researchers need to explore, develop and apply novel computational concepts, methods, and tools.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together computer science and life scientists to discuss emerging and future directions in topics related to key bioinformatics and computational biology techniques:
- Advanced computing architectures
- Algorithm design
- Data analysis and knowledge discovery
- Data management and integration
- Integration of quantitative/symbolic knowledge into executable biomedical “theories” or models.
