************************************************************************** CALL FOR PAPERS International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO) 20-22 April, 2016, Granada (SPAIN) DEADLINE ABSTRACT SUBMISSION: November 25th, 2016 *************************************************************************** It is our great pleasure to announce the 4th International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO), which will take place in Granada (Spain) in April, 2016. Details and instructions for the conference can be found at the conference web site (http://iwbbio.ugr.es/). The conference will be devoted to current researches in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Bioengineering. On behalf of the Steering Committee for IWBBIO, I encourage you to submit your abstracts, especially the symposium which I am organizing: "Using quantitative systems pharmacology for novel drug discovery: a 'systems-level' perspective to reduce toxicity and increase the therapeutic effect of drugs towards 'precision medicine' " http://iwbbio.ugr.es/sessions_proposals.php Brief description of the symposium: Over the past three decades, the predominant paradigm in drug discovery was designing selective ligands for a specific target to avoid unwanted side effects. However, in the last 5 years, the aim has shifted to take into account the biological network in which they interact. Quantitative and Systems Pharmacology (QSP) is a new paradigm that aims to understand how drugs modulate cellular networks in space and time, in order to predict drug targets and their role in human pathophysiology. The goal of this symposium is to go trough the current computational and experimental QSP approaches such as polypharmacology techniques combined with systems biology information and consider the use of new tools and ideas in a wider 'systems-level' context in order to design new drugs with improved efficacy and fewer unwanted off-target effects. The use of network biology produces valuable information such as new indications for approved drugs, drug-drug interactions, proteins-drug side effects and pathways-gene associations. However, we are still far from the aim of QSP, both because of the huge effort needed to model precisely biological network models and the limited accuracy that we are able to reach with those. Hence, moving from 'one molecule for one target to give one therapeutic effect' to the 'big systems-based' picture seems obvious moving forward although whether our current tools are sufficient for such a step is still under debate. We will discuss all these issues in this symposium. A list of contributions with very high quality will be selected to be extended and submitted in different special issues (Biomedical Engineering Online (BMC), Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Biosciences, Genomics and Computational Biology, Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry). More information can be found at: http://iwbbio.ugr.es/2016/issues.php DEADLINE SUBMISSION OF PAPERS: November 25th, 2016 Submission must be done through our submission platform: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwbbio2016 There are two different categories for submissions: Full paper contributions (published under Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series by Springer-Verlag ) and Abstract contributions (published in the conference proceedings under both ISBN and ISSN references). The proceedings of both full papers and abstracts will be submitted to Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus for indexation. More information can be found at: http://iwbbio.ugr.es/2016/submissions.php IMPORTANT DATES: http://iwbbio.ugr.es/index.php Submission of abstracts/papers by authors: November 25th, 2015. Notification of provisional acceptance: January 8th, 2016. Submission of final papers: January 20th, 2016.
