Call For Papers

CIBB 2009
Genova (Italy) 15-17 October, 2009
Conference Website:

The main goal of the CIBB meetings is to provide a forum open to researchers
from different disciplines to present and discuss problems concerning
computational techniques in bioinformatics, systems biology and medical
informatics with a particular focus on Neural Networks, Machine Learning,
Fuzzy Logic, and Evolutionary Computation methods.

CIBB 2009 is jointly organized by:
*INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bioinformatics
*GNCS Gruppo Nazionale Calcolo Scientifico
*HHF Human Health Foundation Onlus
*SIREN Italian Neural Networks Society
*RNBIO The Italian Network for Oncology Bioinformatics
*DISI Dept. Computer and Information Sciences - Univ. Genova (Italy)
*DMI Dipartimento di Matematica e Informatica - Univ. Salerno (Italy)

Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2009 include, but are not limited to:
* Sequence analysis, promoter analysis and identification of transcription
factor binding sites
* Gene expression data analysis
* Methods for the integration of clinical and genetic data
* Algorithms for alternative splicing analysis
* Methods for the functional classification of genes
* Methods for the unsupervised analysis, validation and visualization of
structures discovered in bio-molecular data
* Prediction of secondary and tertiary protein structures
* Mass spectrometry data analysis in proteomics
* Methods for comparative genomics
* Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis
* Mathematical modelling and simulation of biological systems
* Heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics
* Bio-molecular databases and data mining
* Algorithms for pharmacogenetics
* Bio-medical text mining and imaging
* Methods for diagnosis and prognosis
* Software tools for bioinformatics
