6th International Symposium

Information Visualization in Biomedical Informatics


11 July 2012

● LIRMM CNRS Univ. Montpellier II ● Montpellier ● France ●



Organized as part of the 2012 International Information Visualisation Conference, the 6th International Symposium on Information Visualization in Biomedical Informatics (IVBI) is a forum for the presentation of original papers in information visualization theory and applications to biomedical and biomolecular data and processes. The symposium covers all aspects of visualization and issues affecting interaction with large and complex data sets. We encourage the submission of papers covering new techniques, old techniques applied in novel ways, new methods, interesting applications and in-depth surveys.


Peer-reviewed papers will be published in conference proceedings by The Conference Publishing Services (CPS) < http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/>, with ISBN number, and will be indexed by major bibliographical search engines.


Examples of biomedical topics include, but are not limited to

  • High-performance computing and parallel rendering
  • Nucleotide and protein sequence alignment and search 
  • Protein structure, function, sequence analysis
  • Signaling pathways, biochemical networks 
  • Gene regulation, expression, identification and networks
  • DNA, RNA structure, function, sequence analysis
  • Biochemical and cellular simulations and models 
  • Structural, functional and comparative genomics
  • Biomarkers
  • Drug design
  • Computer aided diagnosis 


Examples of visualization topics include, but are not limited to:


  • Interaction with data sets, human factors 
  • Data exploration using classical and novel approaches
  • Visualization and databases
  • Linking literature and semantics in pathway visualizations 
  • Volume and flow visualization
  • Annotation and labeling 
  • Overview and detail presentation of predictive or uncertain data 
  • Comparative Methods / User studies / Surveys 
  • Identification of correlated and anomalous relationships in disparate data sets

Instructions for Authors
Reviewing is
applied to all submitted papers. Authors are invited to upload full original papers to the conference online submission system by March 21, 2012. Electronic submissions (PDF) are preferred and should be formatted according to the instructions for papers at http://www.graphicslink.co.uk/IV2012/PAPERS.htm. The final manuscripts for full papers are expected to be no more than 6 pages - up to 4 excess pages may be purchased and is set by publisher at 30GBP per page.
