IEEE BIBM – Network Science and Artificial Intelligence for Biomedicine & Health informatics (NSAIBHI) Workshop

Network Science is a new paradigm of study to understand complex systems including biological interactions. Pharmacology and drug discovery leverage network biology advances for a better understanding of the complex interactions between drugs, targets and disease, for designing new molecule, and for identifying drugs to be successfully repurposed. More recently, graph neural networks expressed to be a potential game changer in deciphering the inherent complex interaction patterns in complex networks.

IEEE BIBM – NSAIBHI workshop aims to bring together researchers as well as practitioners and students to share ideas, results (even in first stage), about network embedding and analysis to study biological data.

The workshop intends to highlight novel research in the area of network science, network biology and network medicine coupled with representation learning and its application to biology, medicine, and pharmacology. The focus is on, but not limited to, the following broad areas:
1. Network Representation Learning
2. Graph Convolution Neural Network
3. Network Embedding
4. Heterogeneous network integration
5. Network Alignment
4. Disease module detection
5. Network Drug Discovery and Repurposing
