Call for Papers

Molecular epidemiology is an integrative scientific discipline that considers molecular biological processes in specific epidemiological settings. It relates molecular events to etiology, distribution and prevention of disease in human populations. Over the years, molecular epidemiology has become extensively fused with mathematical and computational sciences and immensely benefitted from these tight associations. The CAME workshop aims to bring together field practitioners of molecular epidemiology, molecular evolutionists, population geneticists, medical researchers, bioinformaticians, statisticians and computer scientists interested in the latest developments in algorithms, mining, visualization, modeling, simulation and other methods of computational, statistical and mathematical analysis of genetic and molecular data in the epidemiological context.

We invite submissions of papers presenting original research on mathematical and computational approaches to molecular epidemiology. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Analysis of next generation sequencing data
  • Analysis of mass spectrometry data
  • Evaluation of quasispecies
  • Phylogenetics of pathogens
  • Computational support to disease surveillance
  • Identification of pathogen transmission events
  • Computational approaches to pathogen evolution
  • Identification of novel markers of disease
  • Population dynamics and drug-resistance
  • Metagenomic analysis


Papers of at most 8 pages in IEEE 2-column format should be submitted electronically at

All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, and extended version of selected papers will be invited to a special issue of In Silico Biology.
