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

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.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
-----------------------------
Prospective authors should submit papers prepared according to the following instructions:
Papers should be submitted in PDF format (this is the only accepted format)
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 instructions. 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
Results
Conclusions
References

PUBLICATION
-----------------------------
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 full 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).
