Fourth Immunoinformatics and Computational Immunology Workshop (ICIW 2013)

Workshop - Bethesda, Maryland, United States

In conjunction with ACM International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (ACM-BCB), September 22-25, 2013 Washington DC, USA

Technical advances in instrumentation, sample processing, immunological assays, and bioinformatics techniques generated large amount of immunological data. The overwhelming quantities and complexity of these data present a challenge for immunologists trying to interpret results, extract useful information, and derive new knowledge. The main role of immunoinformatics and computational immunology computational immunology is to convert immunological data into computational problems, solve these problems using mathematical and computational approaches, and then interpret the results to answer immunologically meaningful questions and advance our understanding of the immune system.

The main theme of this workshop is "Bridging Immunology and Computer Science". Nowadays computational methods are integral to virtually every research and development project in every discipline. Immunology is not an exception and the need for sophisticated computational methods for research and development in immunology is increasing. At the same time, because of the extreme domain complexity of immunology, the lag between availability of sophisticated computational methods and their implementation in this field is increasing.
