Call For Papers

The ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Health Informatics (ACM BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. This is the conference's fifth year, building upon the success of the first four meetings in Niagara Falls, Chicago, Orlando, and Washington DC. This year is the first to fully incorporate the new areas of Health Informatics.

ACM BCB 2014 will be held in Newport Beach, CA during September 20-23, 2014. The conference offers a forum for premier interdisciplinary research linking computer science, mathematics, statistics, biology, bioinformatics, biomedical informatics, and health informatics. The past two decades have seen tremendous growth in the scale and complexity of biological and medical data. This conference serves to showcase leading-edge research on new technologies and techniques for gathering, processing, analyzing, and modeling these big data for a variety of scientific, clinical, and healthcare applications, from bench to bedside.

ACM BCB 2014 welcomes original submissions that have not been published or under review. Examples of relevant topics include the following, but are not limited to the areas of:
Bioinformatics Track

Sequencing and Analysis Methods
Gene Regulation and Transcription
Functional Genomics
Population, Evolution, and Comparative Genomics
Computational and Translational Bioinformatics Track

Protein and RNA Structure and Function
Computational Systems Biology
Biomedical Image Analysis
Translational Bioinformatics
Health Informatics Track

Medical Informatics and Medical Records
Knowledge Bases and Text Mining
Mobile Health and Sensor Applications
Population Health and Public Health Informatics
Common Methods and Systems Track

Cross-Cutting Computational Methods
Knowledge Representation and Machine Learning
Databases and Integration of Biomedical Data
Bioinformatics and Healthcare Infrastructure

Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 10 pages in ACM template on 8.5 x 11 inch paper ( All submissions will be evaluated on their originality, technical soundness, significance, presentation, and interest to the conference attendees. All submitted papers will be reviewed by ACM-BCB's technical program committee. All accepted papers of registered authors will be included in the proceedings published by ACM Digital Library. Details for electronic submission can be found on the conference web portal at:
The authors of selected papers will be invited to adapt their papers for publication in a special issue of IEEE/ACM Transaction on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics(TCBB), a special issue of IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI), and a virtual issue of the DATABASE journal.
