Following the success of the “Networking Biostatistics” joint conference hold in Milano last April, we are promoting a special session on “Networking biostatistics and bioinformatics” at CIBB (Computational Intelligence methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics) conference, which is an International conference on biostatistics, bioinformatics, systems and synthetic biology and medical informatics.
This year the Conference will take place in Portugal (6-8 September) at the Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Caparica, Portugal.
The goal of the session is to encourage a “data driven” approach aimed at developing appropriate models that provide new insights into the biomedical problem. Since, in the big data era, the biomedical data turns out to be complex and multivariate, robust and computationally efficient statistical tools are needed to investigate complex dependecies within data structure.
In this spirit, the special session will be devoted to both theoretical advances and applications of statistical methods for the analysis of high-dimensional genetic/omics data. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Expert Systems and Bayesian Networks
• Graphical models
• Multivariate techniques for dimensionality reduction
• Latent class (mixed) modelling
We hope the CIBB conference matches your scientific interests.
