List of Accepted Papers and Highlight Research Track Presentations

Call for Papers

  • Paper presentation slots: 24
  • The submitters are requested to provide a C.V. of the senior author.
  • The Proceedings of TBC 2013 will publish abstracts only without publishing the full length manuscripts to protect from 'prior publication'.
  • Selected papers among the 30 will be invited to a special article of JAMIA.
  • All accepted papers of TBC 2013 will be recommended to be published as journal papers by JAMIA (J Am Med Inform Assoc), BioData Mining, Healthcare Informatics Research, and Genomics & Informatics.

     * TBC does not publish papers on the conference day but has 3 month revision process.

Paper Submission    

  • Full papers are limited to 12 pages, including title, abstract (250 words or less), figures, tables, text, and bibliography. The first page should give keywords, authors' postal and electronic mailing addresses. Papers must not have been previously published and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers will be submitted electronically in MS Word, postscript or PDF format through the conference website at
  • The manuscripts must be submitted in PDF format. Please download the manuscript template
    (MS Word file) to prepare the manuscript. At least one of the authors need to register by the Registration date.

  • Rare and common variants of human genome
  • Epigenomics, non-coding RNAs, and DNA methylation analyses
  • Genome-Phenome-Envirome Network Analysis
  • Microarray analysis and functional genomics for disease
  • Biomarkers, Drug Discovery and Pharmacogenomics
  • Biomedical Text/Data Mining and Visualization
  • Network Biology/Medicine and Pathway/Regulation Analysis
  • Biomedical Intelligence, Clinical Informatics, and Health Record
  • Semantic Biology/Medicine and Biomedical Ontologies.

Proceedings and Publications

JAMIA (Journal of American Medical Informatics Association) is AMIA's premier peer-reviewed journal for biomedical and health informatics. Covering the full spectrum of activities in the field, JAMIA includes informatics articles in the areas of clinical care, clinical research, translational science, implementation science, imaging, education, consumer health, public health, and policy. JAMIA's articles describe innovative informatics research and systems that help to advance biomedical science and to promote health. Case reports, perspectives and reviews also help readers stay connected with the most important informatics developments in implementation, policy and education.
Impact factor: 3.974 (1st in the Medical Informatics category)

BMC Medical Genomics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of functional genomics, genome structure, genome-scale population genetics, epigenomics, proteomics, systems analysis, and pharmacogenomics in relation to human health and disease. It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field. Impact factor: 3.974


BioData Mining is an open access, peer reviewed, online journal encompassing research on all aspects of data mining applied to high-dimensional biological and biomedical data, focusing on computational aspects of knowledge discovery from large-scale genetic, transcriptomic, genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data.

Healthcare Informatics Research is the official journal of the Korean Society of Medical Informatics (KOSMI). The Journal provides a national and international medium for dissemination of original results and interpretative reviews concerning the field of healthcare informatics. The scope of the journal covers information systems, computer-aided decision support systems, health information infrastructure, biomedical engineering and Bioinformatics research.
