Call for Papers, Tutorials and Special Sessions


CIBB 2019 - 16th International Conference on Computational Intelligence
methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics

Bergamo, Italy, 4-6 September 2019



The main goal of the 16th edition 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 biology, 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.
In addition, looking at current trends and future opportunities at the edge
of computer and life sciences, the application of computational
intelligence to systems 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 and
present novel challenges to foster multidisciplinary collaborations.

The scientific program of CIBB 2019 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 restricted to:

   - Next generation sequencing algorithms

   - Multi-omics data analysis

   - High dimensional statistical analysis of omics data

   - Algorithms for alternative splicing analysis

Tutorials and Special Session proposals:  15 February 2019

Paper submission deadline:  1 May 2019

Acceptance notification:  1 June 2019

Camera ready due:  1 July 2019

Author registration due:  31 July 2019

Conference: 4-6 September 2019



Prospective authors should submit papers prepared according to the
following instructions:


   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
   Should this not be possible, authors should reproduce the format and style
   of the sample paper available in the latex template folder.

   Papers should adhere, as much as appropriate, to the following structure
   and sections:

      Scientific background

      Materials and methods




The submission website is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cibb2019



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
the paper at the conference.
IMPORTANT: An accepted paper will be published in the proceedings only if
the final camera-ready version is accompanied by the payment of at least
one registration for one of the authors.

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 also plan 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).



CIBB 2019 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 2019. 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 negotiated).
