The Industrial Track solicits papers describing implementations of Bioinformatics and Biomedicine solutions relevant to industrial settings. The focus of industry track is on papers that address the practical, applied, or pragmatic or new research challenge issues related to the use of bioinformatics and biomedicine technologies in industry. We accept full papers (up to 8 pages), extended abstracts (2-4 pages), as well as short abstracts (1 page, 500 words).

· Journal special issues: IEEE BIBM has a tradition to publish selected papers as special issues in highly respected journals. We will publish the special issues publications with 8 journals: IEEE Transactions on NanoBiosceince, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, International Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics, Proteomics, BMC Genomics, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Journal of Network Modeling and Analysis in Health Informatics and Bioinformatics, Methods (In the past BIBM conference, the number of special issues is: BIBM 2014 – 10 special issues, BIBM 2013 –9 special issues, BIBM 2012—8 special issues, BIBM 2011—8 special issue, BIBM 2010—7 special issues, BIBM 2009—4 special issues; BIBM 2008—4 special issues)

· Student Travel Award: BIBM 2015 will offer as many as possible student travel awards to student authors (including post-doc). We have received a NSF grant for student travel award and expect to offer 25-30 student travel awards. (BIBM 2014—25 student travel awards, BIBM 2013—40 student travel awards, BIBM 2012 -30 student travel awards, BIBM 2011—28 student travel awards, BIBM 2010-22 student travel awards, BIBM 2009—16 student travel awards )
