Call For Papers

IEEE CIBCB 2019 - Call for Papers

Certosa di Pontignano (Siena), Tuscany (Italy) | July 9th-11th.

IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology has become a major technical event in the field of Computational Intelligence and its application to problems in biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, chemical informatics, bioengineering and related fields. It provides a global forum for academic and industrial scientists to discuss and present their latest research findings from theory to applications.

Keynote speakers:
- Pierre Baldi University of California, Irvine, USA (TBC)
- Riccardo Bellazzi University of Pavia, Italy
- Thomas Keane EMBL-EBI, Cambridge, UK

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of 2 to 4 pages (short papers) or of 5 to 8 pages (complete papers) including results, figures and references, or poster abstracts. At maximum, two additional pages are permitted with over-length page charge of US$100/page, to be paid during author registration. Papers must be in PDF and written in English. Detailed instructions and templates for preparing your manuscript can be found here:
The deadline for paper submission is by March 1, 2019. Each paper will be peer-reviewed. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be indexed in IEEE Xplore®. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register ( and present the paper at the conference. All papers should be submitted via the EasyChair online submission system. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.

Special Issues

After the conference, prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts to a Special Issue in "Deep Learning for Genomics/Bioinformatics" to be published in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics or to submit for a Special Issue on IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics.
The Special Issue is open to anyone, i.e. having an accepted paper at CIBCB 2019 is not a requirement. Papers accepted at CIBCB 2019 need to be extended significantly before being submitted to the Special Issue.

Important Dates:

- Paper submission deadline: March 1, 2019
- Final (revised) paper submission deadline: May 31, 2019
- Abstract submission deadline: May 31, 2019


We particularly encourage submissions in emerging topics of high importance for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

CI in Bioinformatics:
- Single cell and bulk transcriptomics
- Machine learning and artificial intelligence in bioinformatics
- Regulatory networks reconstruction/robustness/evolvability
- MicroRNA analysis
- Molecular sequence alignment and analysis
- Pattern recognition/data mining/optimization methods in Bioinformatics
- Visualization of large biological data sets

CI in Computational Biology:
- Metabolic pathway analysis
- Modelling, simulation, and optimization of biological systems
- Biological network
- Structure prediction and folding
- Epigenomics

CI in Biomedical Engineering, Bioprocessing and Healthcare Informatics:
- Biomedical data modelling/data mining/model parametrization
- Biomarker discovery and development
- Personalized medicine and treatment optimization
- Big data analysis and tools for biological and medical data
- Health data acquisition/analysis/mining
- Healthcare information systems/knowledge representation/reasoning
