Call For Papers

Call for Papers
The 10th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. ACM-BCB 2019 is the conference's tenth year anniversary, building upon the success of the first nine meetings in Niagara Falls, Chicago, Orlando, Washington DC, Newport Beach, Atlanta, Seattle, Boston, and Washington DC.
ACM-BCB 2019 will be held in Niagara falls, NY on Sept 7-10, 2019. The conference is the premier conference dedicated to interdisciplinary research linking computer science, mathematics, statistics, biology, bioinformatics, biomedical informatics, and health informatics. The past few decades have seen tremendous growth in the scale and complexity of biological and medical data including recent mainstream recognition of big data challenges. This conference serves to showcase leading-edge research on new technologies and techniques around gathering, processing, analyzing, and modeling of data and information for a variety of scientific, clinical, and healthcare applications, from bench to bedside.

ACM-BCB 2019 welcomes original submissions that have not been published or under review. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM-BCB conference proceedings and appear in the ACM Digital Library (note that ACM copyright permissions are directly compatible with NIH and similar open-access policies, see authors.acm.org/main.html for more information). A subset of selected papers will be invited for being published in a special issue of the IEEE/ACM Transaction on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB), or a special issue of the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI).
In addition, there is a separate Highlights track for authors who wish to present platform talks for papers that have recently appeared in refereed journals; see the conference website (acm-bcb.org) for more information.
Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 10 pages in ACM "sigconf" template on 8.5 x 11 inch paper (http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template). ACM-BCB's technical program committee will review all submissions on the basis of their originality, technical soundness, significance, presentation, and relevance to the conference attendees.
