ACM-BCB 2015 Call for Papers
Atlanta, GA, September 9-12, 2015


The ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health
Informatics (ACM BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. ACM-BCB
2015 is the conference's sixth year, building upon the success of the first
five meetings in Niagara Falls, Chicago, Orlando, Washington DC, and
Newport Beach. Since 2013, we have incorporated the new area of Health
Informatics in BCB and we look forward to its continual growth.

ACM-BCB 2015 will be held in Atlanta GA, September 9-12, 2015. The
conference offers a forum for premier 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. This conference serves to showcase leading-edge research on
new technologies and techniques for gathering, processing, analyzing, and
modeling these big data for a variety of scientific, clinical, and
healthcare applications, from bench to bedside.

ACM-BCB 2015 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/). ACM-BCB's technical program
committee will review all submissions on the basis of their originality,
technical soundness, significance, presentation, and interest 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 http://acm-bcb.bme.gatech.edu/2015/.

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), a special issue of IEEE Journal of
Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI), or a virtual issue of the
DATABASE journal.
