ACM-SAC 2012 Conference Track on Bioinformatics and Computational Systems Biology (BIO) - Riva del Garda Congress Center, Italy, March 2012

SAC 2012

For the past twenty-six years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. SAC 2012 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by COSBI at Riva del Garda Congress Center, Italy.

Track Description

The track aims at proposing a multi-sides perspective to computational biology, bioinformatics and theoretical systems biology. All these three areas involve the development and application of analytical and theoretical methods, mathematical modeling and computational simulation techniques to the study of biological sciences. Currently, the field of application of mathematical and computer science investigation methods to the life sciences is not limited to theoretical modeling in biochemistry, molecular biology and epidemiological biomathematics. Now bioinformatics and computational biology extend also to larger scale systems like ecological systems and include more applicative fields such as pharmacology, medicine, clinical trials design, healthcare and environment. Three ad-hoc topics are added to the more traditional topics of Bio-Track of ACM. These topics are: (i) stochastic ecosystem models, (ii) parallel interacting processes in ecology and (iii) hierarchical modeling at several organizational levels (show/hide more details).
