KRBIO'05: Symposium on Knowledge Representation in Bioinformatics

June 15, 2005
Helsinki University of Technology


The KRBIO'05 symposium focuses on the representation of information in several areas of life sciences taking into account the complexity, dynamics and co-occurrence of the phenomena, and the heterogeneous sources of information emerging from many disciplines and countries. There is a growing need to integrate all the information in order to build models with higher predictive power. Reductionist approaches are not any more sufficient to tackle this complexity.

Therefore, the objectives of the KRBIO'05 symposium is to gather people interested in these challenges to foster discussion and development of new tools and methods in the area of data mining, statistical machine learning, probabilistic reasoning, adaptive conceptual representations combining different levels of representations and dynamical systems theory are needed to deal with the complex phenomena and heterogeneous data.

Please, see the conference programme for the complete programme of the symposium and other conference events.

Symposium publication

The conference papers will be published by Helsinki University of Technology as printed proceedings and they will also be made available through the web to ensure wide distribution.

In addition, the authors of the best papers will be invited to extend their papers for a special issue in the Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.

Important dates
