CIBB 2016 : Thirteenth International meeting on Computational Intelligence methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics
Conference Series : Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics
Call For Papers
The CIBB (Computational Intelligence methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics) is a meeting with more than 10-year history. Its main goal is to provide a forum open to researchers from different disciplines to present problems concerning computational techniques in bioinformatics, systems biology and medical informatics, to discuss cutting edge methodologies and accelerate life science discoveries. Following this tradition and roots, this year's meeting will bring together researchers from the international scientific community interested in this field to discuss the advancements and the future perspectives in bioinformatics and biostatistics. Applied biologists are also invited to participate in order to propose novel challenges aimed to have high impact for molecular biology and translational medicine. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
High dimensional statistical analysis of omic data
Next generation sequencing bioinformatics
Multi-omic data integration
Methods for supervised and unsupervised learning
Prediction of protein structures
Methods for comparative genomics
Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis
Mathematical modelling and simulation of biological systems
Systems and synthetic biology
Bio-molecular databases and data mining
Bio-medical text mining and imaging
Statistical methods for the analysis of clinical data
Methods for the visualization of high dimensional complex omic data
Software tools for bioinformatics
Accepted papers will be presented at the conference (at least one author is expected to register), and will be published on proceedings for conference distribution. Extended and revised versions of the papers presented at CIBB 2016 will be invited for a post-conference monograph. This is traditionally published in the Springer series of Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI), (arrangements undergoing). Continuing the tradition of CIBB, we are planning to publish best papers in one (or more, as appropriate) special issue of an international scientific journal (such as BMC Bioinformatics, in the latest editions).
Papers must be prepared following the guidelines illustrated on the CIBB web site and should be long between 4 and 6 pages.
Papers should be submitted in PDF format on the Easy Chair conference system (link available on the web site).
Tutorials and Special Sessions
CIBB 2016 will run a number of Tutorials and Special Sessions. Any topic of interest for the conference is eligible for a tutorial. Tutorials typically last from one to three hours. Special sessions focus on a specific, possibly cutting-edge, topic of interest for CIBB 2016. Special session organisers will be responsible for call dissemination, reviewing process and organizing oral presentations. Typically, a special session will have at least 4 accepted papers and may have an invited speaker (to be negotiated).
Tutorial proposals including title, one page long abstract, and short CV of presenters, are due by 15th March 2014. Please send proposals to email@example.com.
Special Session proposals including the session's title and scope, short CV of sessions chairs, preliminary list of at least 4 potential authors are due by 15th March 2014. Proposals of special sessions will be evaluated as soon as they are submitted. A special session must have at least 4 accepted papers. Please send proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org
