Call For Papers

CMSB 2019 - Call for Posters and Highlight talks (

The 17th conference on Computational Methods in Systems Biology (CMSB 2019) will take place from 18th to 20th September 2019 in Trieste, Italy. Its aim is to bring together researchers from across biological, mathematical, computational, and physical sciences who are interested in the study, modelling, simulation, advanced analysis, and design of biological systems. CMSB 2019 will be hosted at the University of Trieste, Italy.

Benenson Kobi, synthetic biology group, ETH Zurich, CH
Adelinde Uhrmacher, Modelling and Simulation Group, Rostock University, DE
Trevor Graham, Bart Cancer Institute, London, UK
Gasper Tkačik, IST Austria, Klosterneuburg, Austria
Manuel Zimmer, University of Vienna, Austria

All deadlines are AOE (Anywhere on Earth).

Highlight talks and poster abstract submission:

Notification to authors

CMSB 2019 solicits original research articles, tool papers, posters, and presentations on the modelling and analysis of biological systems and networks as well as the analysis of biological data. The conference brings together computer scientists, biologists, mathematicians, engineers, and physicists interested in a system-level understanding of biological processes. It covers the broad field of computational methods and tools in systems and synthetic biology and their applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- formalisms for modelling biological processes
- models, methods, tools and their biological applications
- frameworks for model verification, validation, analysis, and simulation of biological systems
- high-performance methods for computational systems biology
- parameter and model inference from experimental data
- automated parameter and model synthesis
- model integration and biological databases
- multi-scale modelling and analysis methods
- design, analysis, and verification methods for synthetic biology
- methods for biomolecular computing and engineered molecular devices
- theoretical systems biology
- data-based approaches for systems and synthetic biology
In general, the conference is open to new theoretical results with potential applications to systems and synthetic biology, as well as novel applications and case studies of existing methods, tools, or frameworks.
The CMSB 2019 proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS series and indexed by ISI Web of Science, Scopus, ACM Digital Library, DBLP, and Google Scholar.

A selection of best papers will be invited to be extended and submitted to a special issue of a Bioinformatics journal.

At this stage, we are still soliciting submissions for the two following categories of contributions:

A) Posters
B) Highlight talks

CMSB 2019 solicits poster abstracts presenting I) original unpublished work and II) recent outstanding results already accepted to a recognised journal or a high-quality conference during the last year. The abstracts should be submitted in Springer LNCS style and should not exceed 2 pages including references. Based on the abstracts the program committee will select posters to be presented at the CMSB 2018 poster session including flash presentations.

CMSB 2019 offers the track of oral presentations without full paper or poster submission. We welcome submissions of work that has been already published in a journal, or that is currently under review or will soon be submitted. The abstracts summarizing the results and their relevance should not exceed 2 pages including references. The document format must be single spaced and written in an 11 point type font. Selected talks will be presented during plenary sessions of the conference. We encourage authors to also bring along a poster on their contribution, to facilitate further discussions.

All poster/ highlight talk abstracts have to be written in English and submitted electronically using the EasyChair online submission system ( in the form of a PDF file.

All accepted contributions must be presented at the conference by one of the authors.
