Call For Papers

Call for papers CMSB 2024
22nd Conference on Computational Methods in Systems Biology
September 16-18, 2024
Dipartimento di Informatica
CMSB series website:

CMSB 2024 solicits original research articles, tool papers, posters,
and highlight talks on the modelling and analysis of biological
systems and networks, as well as the analysis of biological data. The
conference 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. It covers the broad field of computational
methods and tools in systems and synthetic biology and their


Abstract submission (regular/tool papers): April 28, 2024 (EXTENDED)
Paper submission (regular/tool papers): May 05, 2024 (EXTENDED)

Conference: September 16-18, 2024


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* 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 and data analytics in biology;
* 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

The CMSB 2024 proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS/LNBI
series and indexed by ISI Web of Science, Scopus, ACM Digital Library,
DBLP, and Google Scholar.


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 series. Papers
in this category should not exceed 15 pages in the Springer LNCS style
(including main figures and tables, excluding references and possible

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 have 4-6 pages in
the Springer LNCS style (including main figures and tables, excluding
references and possible appendices).

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 session and/or
for flash presentations. Poster submissions will not be included in
the Springer LNBI proceedings.

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 submissions of recently published work.
Submitted abstracts summarising the results and their relevance should
not exceed 2 pages including references. Extended abstracts will not
be included in the Springer LNBI proceedings.
