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 calling.
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 systems.
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: i...@ipass.net<mailto:i...@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
