New! Call for Late posters and software demonstrations
A Call for late posters and software demonstration at next NETTAB 2012 workshop has been launched. Software demonstations wil be held in parallel to the poster session. We won't be able to accept many demonstration proposals. We apologize in advance for this.
Submit your late poster or software demonstration abstract by email to nettab2012 @ elet.polimi.it .
Instructions for the preparation of the abstract are included in the following
MS Word template.
The length of abstracts for late posters and software demonstrations should be between 1 and 3 pages, including no more than one table or figure. Abstracts for late posters should normally include the following sections: Motivation and Objectives, Methods, Results and Discussion, References. Abstracts for software demonstrations should also include a short description of the software that it is intended to be presented and the requirements for the presentation, if any.
All late poster abstracts will be evaluated by the Workshop's Chairs on the basis both of their relevance
for the workshop's topics and of their contents.
Authors will receive communication of poster acceptance or rejection.
Accepted late poster and software demonstration abstracts won't be included in the Proceedings of the workshop, but they will be printed and distributed to all participants. Accepted late poster abstracts will be allowed to submit to the special Call for papers for post-workshop publication on a devoted BMC Bioinformatics Supplement.
NETTAB 2012 Call for Papers
NETTAB 2012 is the twelfth in a series of international workshops on Network Tools and Applications in Biology
The data deluge of the current post-genomic era is providing scientists with potentially very valuable information, but it makes difficult to find and extract from the increasing available high-throughput Omics data those information that are most reliable and most related to the biomedical questions to be answered. Such questions are increasingly complex and they often simultaneously regard many heterogeneous aspects of an organism, tissue, cell and the role of all biomolecular entities. Several of these questions can be addressed only by comprehensively searching different types of data, which generally are distributed in many heterogeneous sources. Usually, scientists explore these data by using the individual search services and tools available in Internet and they then struggle in combining the essential information in order to answers their global questions.
Searching and combining for all open and linked data and algorithmic sources has the potential of reshaping the scenario of current bioinformatics applications, going beyond the capabilities of conventional tools, Web services and existing search engines. Yet, it also presents new technological challenges.
Solving data integration and automatic extraction problems requires new solutions, including the use of universal URIs, efficient indexing, partial or approximate value matching, rank aggregation, continuous or push-based search, exploratory methods and context-aware paradigms, collaborative and social search, and building new efficient information retrieval approaches, based on automatization of workflows too.
NETTAB 2012 will be focused on "Integrated Bio-Search", which includes all aspects that relate to technologies, methods, architectures, systems and applications for searching, retrieving, integrating and analyzing data, information, knowledge, infrastructures, services and tools that are required to answer complex bio-medical-molecular questions.
We are looking for abstracts on all aspects of data integration search in biomedicine.
These include methods, algorithms, tools, platforms and applications for creation, syntactic and semantic management,
integration, query, retrieval, and mining of Omics, biological and clinical data information and knowledge.
The following list is not meant to be exclusive of any further topics as stated above.
Type of contributions
The following possible contributions are sought: Oral communications, Posters, Industrial-Technological communications.
Industrial-technological communications are meant to allow the presentation of methodological, scientific and technological issues of industrial products and tools that are already available from companies and research groups, as well as their actual implementation, application domains, and related results. They must not convey any commercial message. They will be included in a devoted Session.
The following deadlines are still provisional and thus subject to changes.
Submit your contribution through the EasyChair system at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nettab2012.
Instructions for the preparation of the abstract have been included within the following MS Word template:
The length of all abstracts, both for oral communications and for posters, should be between 2 and 3 pages,
including no more than one table or figure.
They should include the following sections: Motivation and Objectives, Methods, Results and Discussion, References.
Authors of accepted abstracts are invited to download, print, compile, and sign the EMBnet.journal copyright and license agreement (see below for further information on this agreement). The signed document should then be scanned and the PDF file should be uploaded to EasyChair as attachment.
Instructions for the preparation of posters
Proceedings of the NETTAB 2012 workshop has been published
Full papers from abstracts presented at NETTAB 2012 will be published in a
one of the leading bioinformatics journals.
is a peer-review, open access journal. Its Impact Factor for 2010 is 3.029.
Publication of abstracts in the Proceedings of the workshop requires the signature of the EMBnet.journal copyright and license agreement by one of the authors. This only refers to the abstract and does not preclude in any way the following publication of extended versions in any journal. The main clauses of the agreement are the following:
