CIBB 2021 Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics
The main goal of this 17th 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 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. Moreover, 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.
After the conference, the authors of all the accepted short papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit an extended version of their manuscripts to the conference proceedings book in Springer Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) or to a journal supplement in BMC Bioinformatics or BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making.
Publication of post-conference proceedings and journal supplements
News: The authors of all the accepted short papers have the possibility to prepare extended versions of their articles and to submit them to the Springer Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) proceedings book, to a BMC Bioinformatics journal supplement, or to a BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making journal supplement.
More information can be found in the post-conference proceedings and journal supplements webpage.
