ACM-BCB 2016 Call for Papers
Seattle, WA, October 2–5, 2016

website: http://acm-bcb.org

The 7th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health
Informatics (ACM BCB) is the flagship
conference of the ACM SIGBio. ACM-BCB 2016 is the conference's seventh
year, building upon the success of the first
six meetings in Niagara Falls, Chicago, Orlando, Washington DC, Newport
Beach, and Atlanta.
ACM-BCB 2016 will be held in Seattle, WA, October 2-5, 2016. The conference
is the premier dissemination forum for
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 2016 welcomes original submissions that have not been published or
under review. Examples of relevant
topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Behavioral, Environmental, and Public Health Informatics
* Biological Network Modeling and Analysis
* Biomedical Imaging and Data Visualization
* Clinical and Health Decision Support Systems
* Computational Systems Biology
* Epigenomics, Gene Regulation and Transcription
* Genome and Sequence Analysis
* Healthcare Data Quality Control, Privacy, and Security
* Microbiomics and Metagenomics
* Mobile Health and Sensor Networks
* Population, Evolution, and Comparative Genomics
* Predictive Modeling and Analytics in Healthcare
* Protein and RNA Structure and Function
* Proteomics and Metabolomics
* Text Mining of Biomedical Literature and Clinical Notes
* Translational Bioinformatics

Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 10 pages in ACM template on 8.5 x
11 inch paper
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). 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. All accepted papers of registered authors will be
included in the proceedings published
by ACM Digital Library. Details for the conference can be found at the
The authors of selected papers will be invited to adapt their papers for
being published in a special issue of
IEEE/ACM Transaction on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB), or
a special issue of IEEE Journal of
Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI).
