BICOB-2017 - 9th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational
March 20 - 22, 2017 - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
Paper Submission Deadline: October 31 2016
Notification of Acceptance: December 18, 2016
Pre-registration and Camera-ready Manuscripts: January
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
Genome analysis: Genome assembly, Next-Gen genomics and metagenomics, genome
and chromosome annotation, gene finding, alternative splicing, EST analysis and
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,
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
