    http://idamap.org/idamap2008

    7th November, 2008
    A one-day colloquium in Washington DC, USA
    John H. Holmes and Allan Tucker(chairs)


    Organized in collaboration with Intelligent Data Analysis and Data
    Mining Working Group of the International Medical Informatics
    Association, and
    Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining Working Group of the American
    Medical Informatics
    Association

    IMPORTANT DATES
    Submission: July 31, 2008
    Notification: August 28, 2008
    Camera-ready: September 25, 2008


    GENERAL INFORMATION

    IDAMAP-2008, a colloquium on intelligent data analysis in biomedicine
    and
    pharmacology, will be held in conjunction with the American Medical
    Informatics Association Annual Symposium 2008
    (http://www.amia.org/meetings/f08/) in the Hilton Washington and
    Towers,
    Washington DC, USA.


    The IDAMAP series is devoted to computational methods for data
    analysis in medicine, biology and pharmacology that present results
    of
    analysis in the form communicable to domain experts and that somehow
    exploit knowledge of the problem domain. Such knowledge may be
    available
    at different stages of the data-analysis and model-building process.
    Typical methods include data visualization, data exploration, machine
    learning, and data mining.

    Gathering in an informal setting, colloquium participants will have
    the
    opportunity to meet and discuss selected technical topics in an
    atmosphere which fosters the active exchange of ideas among
    researchers
    and practitioners. The colloquium is intended to be a genuinely
    interactive event and not a mini-conference, thus ample time will be
    allotted for general discussion.


    TOPICS

    In the colloquium, the attention will be given to methodological
    issues of
    intelligent data analysis and on specific applications in biomedicine
    and pharmacology. In terms of methodology, topics include, but are
    not
    limited to:
    - data mining and machine learning techniques for supervised and
    unsupervised learning problems,
    - exploiting domain knowledge in learning and data analysis,
    - data visualization and exploration,
    - analysis of large data sets and relational data mining,
    - knowledge management and its integration with intelligent data
    analysis techniques, and
    - integration of intelligent data analysis techniques within
    biomedical information systems.


    A paper submitted to the colloquium is expected to show a selected
    methodology can help to solve relevant problems in medicine, and
    would
    typically address the following issues:
    - What is the medical or clinical problem addressed?
    - Was any prior knowledge available? How was this used in the
    data analysis or interpretation of results?
    - How is/can the newly discovered knowledge put into use?

    Contributions that discuss particular applications of intelligent
    data
    analysis techniques are invited, and can for example cover analysis
    of
    medical and health-care data, data coming from clinical
    bioinformatics
    data bases (like microarray data and DNA sequence analysis), analysis
    of
    pharmacological data, drug design, drug testing, and outcomes
    analysis.


    DATA ANALYSIS TOOLS

    In addition to regular scientific contributions, we invite developers
    of
    data analysis tools to send in a paper description of their tool, and
    give a demonstration during the colloquium. A special demo session on
    data
    analysis tools will be organized. The paper should describe the
    underlying methodology of the tool and the sketch the potential for
    application in the field of intelligent data analysis in biomedicine.
    Preferably, the papers on data analysis tools should also describe a
    case study where the tool was used.


    PROGRAM

    The scientific program of the colloquium will consist of presentations
    of
    accepted scientific papers, an invited presentation, and
    demonstrations
    of data analysis tools. Ample time will be allotted for informal
    discussion among the participants.


    SUBMISSION & PUBLICATION OF ACCEPTED PAPERS

    IDAMAP invites submissions of either short papers (2 pages, up to
    1500
    words, leading to a short presentation at the meeting) or full papers
    (up to 6 pages/4500 words, leading to a long presentation at the
    meeting). Papers should be written in English.

    Authors should send an electronic submission in PDF format to both
    chairs
    (, ); please use
    "IDAMAP SUBMISSION YOUR_NAME" as a subject, where YOUR_NAME is the
    surname of the first author. Alternatively to preferred PDF,
    submissions
    using Post Script or MS Word format are also welcome.

    The submissions should be received no later than July 31, 2008.
    Formatting
    instructions and instructions for authors are available on the IDAMAP
    2008
    home page at http://idamap.org/idamap2008.

    Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two people of the
    program
    committee. Authors will be notified of acceptance/rejection by August
    28,
    2008. Accepted papers will appear in colloquium notes that will be
    distributed among registered participants. A subsequent publication
    of
    selected and revised papers in a peer-reviewed, international journal
    is
    planned.


    REGISTRATION
    Details on payment and registration will be posted shortly on the AMIA
    and IDAMAP 2008 pages.
