Most research areas of bioinformatics, computational biology and medical 
informatics have experienced significant advances in recent years driven 
by computational techniques in bioinformatics. The 9th International 
Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BICOB) will 
provide an utmost venue for researchers and practitioners in 
bioinformatics to present and publish their research results and 
techniques. Bioinformatics and computational biology continue to be a 
vibrant research area with broadening applications and new emerging 
challenges. BICOB-2017 seeks original and high quality papers in the 
fields of bioinformatics, computational biology, systems biology, 
medical informatics and the related areas. The conference includes a 
*Best Paper Award*to be given during the conference banquet. We also 
encourage work in progress and research results in the emerging and 
evolutionary computational areas. Work in the computational methods 
related to, or with application in, bioinformatics is also encouraged 
including: computational intelligence and its application in 
bioinformatics, bio-data mining and text mining, evolutionary 
algorithms, nature-inspired computation, machine learning and bio-NLP, 
biomedical ontology, biomathematics, modeling and simulation, pattern 
recognition, data visualization, biostatistics. The topics of interest 
include (and are not limited to):

*Genome analysis:*Genome assembly, Next-Gen genomics and metagenomics, 
genome and chromosome annotation, gene finding, alternative splicing, 
EST analysis and comparative genomics.

*Sequence analysis:*Multiple sequence alignment, sequence search and 
clustering, next generation sequencing NGS, function prediction, motif 
discovery, functional site recognition in protein, RNA and DNA sequences.

*Phylogenetics:*Phylogeny estimation, models of evolution, comparative 
biological methods, population genetics.

*Structural Bioinformatics:*Structure matching, prediction, analysis and 
comparison; methods and tools for docking; protein design.
*Analysis of high-throughput biological data:*Microarrays (nucleic acid, 
protein, array CGH, genome tiling, and other arrays), EST, SAGE, MPSS, 
proteomics, mass spectrometry. Also, query languages, interoperability, 
bio-ontology and bio-data mining.
*Genetics and population analysis:*Linkage analysis, association 
analysis, population simulation, haplotyping, marker discovery, genotype 
*Systems biology:*Systems approaches to molecular biology, multiscale 
modeling, pathways, gene networks, transcriptomics - microarray data 
analysis, proteomics, epigenomics.
*Healthcare Informatics:*healthcare data acquisition, analysis and 
mining. Clinical decision support systems, and healthcare information 
*Computational Proteomics:*Filtering and indexing sequence databases, 
Peptide quantification and identification, Genome annotations via mass 
spectrometry, Identification of post-translational modifications, 
Structural genomics via mass spectrometry, Protein-protein interactions, 
Computational approaches to analysis of large scale Mass spectrometry 
data, Exploration and visualization of proteomic data, Data models and 
integration for proteomics and genomics, Querying and retrieval of 
proteomics and genomics data etc.

    Submission Procedures

Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission (in PDF format). A 
full paper, including title, author's name(s) and affiliation, mailing 
address, telephone, fax and email of the principal author, should be 
submitted by***October 31, 2016***at the following web 
site:https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bicob2017.The submitted 
manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in 
the Proceedings which will be a maximum of 6 pages (+2 pages with 
additional page charge). A double-column format will be used; see 
template:http://www.isca-hq.org/sample-isca-manuscript-format.pdf. If 
you encounter any difficulties during submission or if you require 
further information, please contact:isca from ipass.net <mailto:isca from ipass.net>.

    Journal Publication

Authors of selected papers in BICOB-2017 will be invited to submit 
extended version of their papers for possible publication in the*Journal 
of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (JBCB).* 


Accepted papers will be indexed in Scopus, EI, and INSPEC, and submitted 
to DBLP for indexing. All BICOB-2017 Proceedings papers will be 
accessible and available online at www.seachDL.org 
<http://www.seachDL.org> and also will appear in Google scholar full text.
