Conference history

The International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (CIBB) conference series was originally founded by Roberto Tagliaferri (Università di Salerno, Italy), Francesco Masulli (Università di Genova, Italy), and Antonina Starita (Università di Pisa, Italy), who formed its initial steering committee in 2004. The conference started as a special session of the 14th Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN 2004) in Perugia (Italy), and was a special session of international conferences organized in Italy for its first four editions. CIBB became an independent conference in October 2008 with its first autonomous edition in Vietri sul Mare (Italy), held few months after the sad demise of the CIBB founder Antonina Starita (1939-2008).
Since then, the conference kept growing with larger international audiences and with contributed studies of higher quality.

Since 2004, the CIBB conference series generated 12 proceedings books, 4 sections of proceedings books, and 9 journal supplements, that together contain around 400 peer-reviewed original scientific publications. Approximately 1,200 participants attended the CIBB conferences so far.
CIBB 2021 has been the first virtual edition of the series.

Future editions

We will soon consider applications for the organization of the next edition of the conference (CIBB 2023), which will hopefully be in person.
Would you like to host the next CIBB edition at your university or research centre?
Or are you interested to help in the organization of the next CIBB conference edition, wherever it will be?
If yes, please send us an email at cibb2021(AT)protonmail.com and let's talk about it.
