Dr. Vasant Honavar, Professor of Computer Science and Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, has been named a Fellow of the International Society of Intelligent Biological Medicine (ISIBM). In the fields of bioinformatics, computational biology, and bioengineering, scientists regularly approach important biological and medical problems by using a common set of intelligent methods, such as computational data mining, evolutionary computation, pattern recognition, knowledge representation, databases, combinatorics, stochastic modeling, linguistic methods, robotics, string and graph algorithms, constraint satisfaction, and parallel computation. With such a plethora of intelligent methods, it is essential to provide a platform to bring these scientists together to discuss scientific issues in this fast growing field. ISIBM aims to fill this need. The mission of ISIBM is to facilitate the multidisciplinary development of intelligent methods and to empower creative scientists in these fields to solve biological and medical problems.
