3rd International Workshop on Machine Learning in Systems Biology

September 5-6, 2009

the Jozef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia

The aim of this workshop is to contribute to the cross-fertilization between the research in machine learning methods and their applications to systems biology (i.e., complex biological and medical questions) by bringing together method developers and experimentalists. We encourage submissions bringing forward methods for discovering complex structures (e.g. interaction networks, molecule structures) and methods supporting genome-wide data analysis.

It will immediately precede ECML PKDD 2009, taking place 7-11 September 2009 in Bled, Slovenia.
