Our sponsor Bioinformatics Italian Society awards a travel grant to its associates. More information on the Financial support session.
Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2014 include, but are not limited to: next generation sequencing bioinformatics; multi omics integration; methods for the integration of clinical and genetic data; algorithms for alternative splicing analysis; methods for the functional classification of genes; methods for the unsupervised analysis, validation and visualization of structures discovered in bio-molecular data; prediction of protein structures; mass spectrometry data analysis in proteomics; methods for comparative genomics; algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis; mathematical modelling and simulation of biological systems; systems and synthetic biology; heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics; bio-molecular databases and data mining; algorithms for pharmacogenetics; bio-medical text mining and imaging; modeling and evaluation methods for diagnosis and prognosis; software tools for bioinformatics.
The scientific program will include, besides some plenary talks, contributed papers that will be presented in plenary oral and poster sessions. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. A selection of papers presented at CIBB 2014 will be published a in post conference volume printed by an international publisher. Moreover, we are planning to publish the best papers in extended form in a special issue of BMC Bioinformatics.
Two new special sessions have been added to the conference. Find the full description in the special session page.
Also note that the submission deadline has been extended for the new special sessions.
We have published the preliminary list of the people in the program committee.
The date for submission deadline is now April 5. Also the notification of acceptance will be slightly shifted, to May 10. Check the new dates here.
Registration is now open! Register now!
The keynote speakers have confirmed their presence. The list is now available here.
The flyer of the conference is available for download. We encourage you to print it out and hang it on the bulletin boards of your institution to promote the conference.
Today we launched the new conference website. More attractive, easier to surf, more fun to explore. It even works with mobiles and tablets. Try it with your phone!
