Call For Papers

The 19th conference on Computational Methods in Systems Biology (CMSB 2021, will take place on September 22-24, either in person in Bordeaux (France), or online, depending on the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic. CMSB is a well established conference series. It brings together researchers from across biological, mathematical, computational, and physical sciences who are interested in the modelling, simulation, analysis, inference, design, and control of biological systems.

- Eugenio Cinquemani (Inria Grenoble-Rhône-Alpes, France,
- Loïc Paulevé (CNRS, LaBRI, France,

Invited speakers:

- Diego di Bernardo (TIGEM, Italy)
- Laurence Calzone (Institut Curie, France)
- Giulia Giordano (University of Trento, Italy)
- Yang-Yu Liu (Harvard Medical School, US)
- Ion Petre (University of Turku, Finland)


CMSB 2021 solicits contributions on the following or related topics:

- formalisms for modelling biological processes
- methods and tools for biological system analysis, modelling and simulation
- frameworks for model verification, validation, analysis, and simulation of biological systems
- high-performance methods for computational systems biology
- identification of biological systems
- applications of machine learning
- network modelling, analysis, inference
- automated parameter and model synthesis
- model integration and biological databases
- multi-scale modelling and analysis methods
- design, analysis, and verification methods for synthetic biology
- methods for biomolecular computing and engineered molecular devices
- data-based approaches for systems and synthetic biology
- optimality and control of biological systems
- modelling, analysis and control of microbial communities

The conference welcomes new theoretical results with potential applications to systems and synthetic biology, as well as novel applications and case studies of existing methods, tools, or frameworks. Contributions should be submitted to one of the following categories:

A) REGULAR PAPERS: Regular papers should describe original work that has not been previously published and is not under review for publication elsewhere. Accepted regular papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings in the Springer LNCS/LNBI series and indexed by ISI Web of Science, Scopus, ACM Digital Library, DBLP, and Google Scholar. Papers in this category should not exceed 15 pages in the LNCS format (including main figures and tables, excluding references and appendix).

B) TOOL PAPERS: Tool papers should present new tools or public websites, new tool components or novel extensions to existing tools or websites supporting biological system modelling, analysis, simulation, or similar. Submissions must include information on methods, tool availability, and selected application results. They should be original and not previously published in a similar form. Accepted tool papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings in the Springer LNCS series. Papers in this category should not exceed 6 pages in the LNCS format (including main figures and tables, excluding references and appendix). For the tool evaluation, authors shall either submit an artifact along with the paper by the submission deadline, or provide clear indications how to locate it on the web. If none of this is applicable, authors shall contact the program chairs before submission deadline to agree on alternative means of evaluation. Tool papers will undergo a dedicated reviewing process that includes the testing of the tools, with specific feedback returned to the authors. Authors of accepted tool papers will be encouraged to showcase their tool in a tool session at the conference.

C) POSTERS: Extended abstracts should be submitted to propose poster presentation of original unpublished work, or of major results published or accepted in the last year in a high-quality journal or conference. The abstracts should be submitted in Springer LNCS style and should not exceed 4 pages all included. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited for presentation in a poster sessions and/or for flash presentations.

D) HIGHLIGHT TALKS: Highlight talk proposals should be submitted in the form of an extended abstract, for possible oral presentation without publication of related material in the conference proceedings. We particularly welcome submission of recently published work. Submitted abstracts summarizing the results and their relevance should not exceed 2 pages including references.

Each contribution will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee (reported below).

* A selection of best papers will be invited for extension and submission to a special issue of BMC Bioinformatics at a discounted Author Processing Charge (1282 GBP).


Regular and tool papers:
- submission: April 12, 2021
- notification: June 7, 2021
- final version: June 21, 2021
Highlight talks (presentation only):
- extended abstract submission: May 31, 2021
- notification: June 7, 2021
- extended abstract submission: June 14, 2021
- notification: June 21, 2021

All of the deadlines are AoE (Anywhere on Earth).
