Workshop on Computational Advances in Molecular Epidemiology (CAME 2011)

held in conjunction with the

5th IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM 2011)

Atlanta, GA, November 12-15, 2011


Molecular epidemiology is an integrative scientific discipline that
considers molecular biological processes in specific epidemiological
settings. It relates molecular events to etiology, distribution and
prevention of disease in human populations. Over the years, molecular
epidemiology has become extensively fused with mathematical and
computational sciences and immensely benefitted from these tight
associations. The CAME workshop aims to bring together field practitioners
of molecular epidemiology, molecular evolutionists, population geneticists,
medical researchers, bioinformaticians, statisticians and computer
scientists interested in the latest developments in algorithms, mining,
visualization, modeling, simulation and other methods of computational,
statistical and mathematical analysis of genetic and molecular data in the
epidemiological context.

We invite submissions of papers presenting original research on mathematical 
and computational approaches to molecular epidemiology. Topics of interest 
include but are not limited to:

      * Analysis of next generation sequencing data
      * Analysis of mass spectrometry data
      * Evaluation of quasispecies
      * Phylogenetics of pathogens
      * Computational support to disease surveillance
      * Identification of pathogen transmission events
      * Computational approaches to pathogen evolution
      * Identification of novel markers of disease
      * Population dynamics and drug-resistance
      * Metagenomic analysis

Papers of at most 8 pages in IEEE 2-column format should be submitted 
electronically at


All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Accepted papers will 
be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, and extended version of 
selected papers will be invited to a special issue of In Silico Biology.
