2021 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (IEEE BIBM 2021) December 9-12, 2021,

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation and the restriction of the international travel, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of IEEE BIBM 2021 into an all-digital conference experience – IEEE BIBM 2021 will now be an online event. Therefore, IEEE BIBM 2021 will no longer take place in Houston, TX, USA and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same – December 9-12, 2021. Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned.

The IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM) has established itself as the premier research conference in bioinformatics and biomedicine. IEEE BIBM 2021 provides a leading forum for disseminating the latest research in bioinformatics and health informatics. It brings together academic and industrial scientists from computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics and statistics.

We solicit high-quality original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) in any aspect of bioinformatics, genomics, and biomedicine.
