=== Scope ===

The main goal of the CIBB international conference is to provide a
multi-disciplinary forum open to researchers interested in the application
of computational intelligence, in a broad sense, to open problems in
bioinformatics, biostatistics, systems and synthetic biology and medical
informatics. Cutting edge methodologies capable of accelerating life
science discoveries will be discussed.

Following its tradition and roots, this year's meeting will bring together
researchers from the international scientific community interested in
advancements and future perspectives in bioinformatics and biostatistics.
Also, looking at current trends and future opportunities at the edge of
computer and life sciences, the application of computational intelligence
to system and synthetic biology, and the consequent impact on innovative
medicine will be of great interest for the conference. Theoretical and
experimental biologists are also invited to participate in order to present
novel challenges and foster multidisciplinary collaboration.

The scientific program of CIBB 2017 will include Keynote Speakers,
tutorials and special sessions. Contributed papers will be presented in
plenary oral sessions, special sessions, or poster sessions.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Next generation sequencing bioalgorithms

- Multi-omics data analysis

- High dimensional statistical analysis of omics data

- Algorithms for alternative splicing analysis

- Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis

- Methods for the visualization of high dimensional complex omic data

- Software tools for bioinformatics

- Methods for comparative genomics

- Methods for functional classification of genes

- Methods for unsupervised analysis, validation and visualization of
structures discovered in bio-molecular data

- Health-Informatics and Medical Informatics

- Methods for the integration of clinical and genetic data

- Heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics

- Algorithms for pharmacogenomics

- Biomedical text mining and imaging

- Methods for diagnosis and prognosis within personalized medicine

- Statistical methods for the analysis of clinical data

- Prediction of secondary and tertiary protein structures

- Mass spectrometry data analysis in proteomics

- Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis

- Bio-molecular databases and data mining

- Mathematical modeling and automated reasoning on biological and synthetic

- Computational simulation of biological systems

- Methods and advances in systems biology

- Spatio-temporal analysis of synthetic and biological systems

- Network systems biology

- Models for cell populations and tissues

- Methods for the engineering of synthetic components

- Modelling and engineering of interacting synthetic and biological systems

- Software tools for bioinformatics, biostatistics, systems and synthetic

=== Publication ===

Pdf versions of accepted papers will be distributed at the conference. At
least one author of an accepted paper is required to register and present
their paper at the conference.

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of
their work to a post-conference monograph.

We plan to invite all papers for a volume in the Springer series of Lecture
Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI).

Continuing the tradition of CIBB, we are also planning to invite the best
papers, as an alternative to the publication on LNBI, to a special issue of
an international scientific journal (such as BMC Bioinformatics, as in the
latest editions).

=== Submission guidelines ===

Authors should submit papers prepared according to the following

- Papers should be submitted in PDF format (this is the only accepted

- Papers length should be at least 4 pages and should not exceed 6 pages

- We warmly recommend the use of the provided latex template and
instructions <http://cibb2017.unica.it/cibb2017-sample-v.1.3.zip>. Should
this not be possible, authors should reproduce the format and style of the
sample paper available with the latex style.

- Papers should be submitted in PDF format on the Easy Chair conference
system at this link <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cibb2017>.

=== Tutorials and Special Sessions ===

CIBB 2017 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 2017. Special session
organisers will be responsible for call dissemination, the 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

Tutorial proposals, including title, a one page long abstract, and short CV
of presenters, are due by March 25th, 2017. Please send proposals to
cibb2017 from gmail.com.

Special Session proposals, including the session's title and scope, short
CV of sessions chairs, preliminary list of at least 4, possibly more,
potential authors are due by March 25th 2017. Proposals of special sessions
will be evaluated as soon as they are submitted. A special session is
expected to have at least 4 accepted papers. Please send proposals to
