*ACM-BCB 2017 Call for Papers*

Boston, MA, August 20-23, 2017


The 8th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health
Informatics (ACM BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio.
ACM-BCB 2017
is the conference's eighth year, building upon the success of the first
seven meetings in Niagara Falls, Chicago, Orlando, Washington DC, Newport
Beach, Atlanta and Seattle.

ACM-BCB 2017 will be held in Boston, MA, August 20-23, 2017. 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.

In addition, this year ACM-BCB 2017 will be co-located with the Workshop on
Algorithms in Bioinformatics (WABI).

ACM-BCB 2017 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). In addition,
there is a separate Highlights track for authors who wish to present
platform talks for papers that have already appeared in refereed journals;
see the conference website for more information. Examples of relevant
topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
● Systems biology
● Automated diagnosis and prediction
● Biological modeling
● Application to healthcare processes
● Inferring phylogenies and haplotypes
● Text mining and classification
● Sequence analysis and genome assembly
● Knowledge representation applications
● Protein structure and dynamics
● Applications to microbes and imaging genetics
● Protein and RNA analysis
● Advancing algorithms and methods
● Genomic variation and disease
● Cancer genomics
● Big data in bioinformatics
● Clinical databases and information systems

*Submission Link*: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bcb17
(Please choose the most appropriate track for your submission)

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 (Note that ACM copyright permissions are directly
compatible with NIH and similar open access policies, see http://authors.acm
.org/main.html for more information.). Details for the conference can be
found at the acm-bcb.org

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* <http://www.computer.org/web/tcbb> (TCBB), or a
special issue of *IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics*
<http://jbhi.embs.org/> (J-BHI).
