Frontiers in the Convergence of
Bioscience and Information Technologies 2007
FBIT 2007

FBIT 2007 was a conference where both invited speakers and presenters displayed great authority of presentation and were of very high standing in their respective fields. The acceptance rate of the full papers of FBIT 2007 was perfectly compatible with an acceptance ratio of 30%. The conference rejected a large number of requests for special sessions selecting only the most prestigious researchers and the most relevant and exciting topics of special sessions for this unique conference. Approximately 30 papers from the 150 papers that appeared in conference proceedings have now been published in extended form and after strict refereeing, in the 2.0 impact factor SCIE listed open access journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology (2008 FBIT Special Issue), and three more special issues containing extended papers from the conference are now in preparation.

The 2007 International Conference Frontiers in the Convergence of Bioscience and Information Technologies (FBIT 2007) will be held in Jeju Island, Korea on October 11-13, 2007. FBIT 2007 will be the most comprehensive conference focused on the various aspects of the convergence of Biosciences with Computational Sciences, Mathematics and ICT (Bio-ICT convergence).

  What is the vision of FBIT? Scientists probe Nature closer than ever before making an information deluge that if managed with computer power will deliver a deep understanding of Nature. Bioinspired Computation and Biomimetics exploit the insight to thrive with real problems that Life solved in its history. Understanding of information processing in biological systems is key to the 'Bio-ICT convergence', e.g. novel computing paradigms derive from the information representation and processing capabilities of biological systems or from the computational interpretation of biological processes. Materials Science people also use the knowledge to create new biosensors, immunosensors and BioMEMS. The Bio-ICT convergence is hugely powerful but successful only when you participate and present your field of expertise (whatever your area): cell biology, mathematics, computational science, physics, chemistry or medicine. A fusion of knowledge builds to create new industries in areas as disparate as humanoid robotics, computer science, synthetic biotechnology, and biomedicine.

  This Bio-ICT convergence conference will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area of the combination of Computational and Mathematical Sciences with the Biosciences. In addition, the conference will publish high quality papers which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in Bio-ICT. Furthermore, we expect that the conference and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject.
