The main goal of CIBB meetings is to provide a forum open to researchers from different disciplines to present and discuss problems concerning computational techniques in bioinformatics, systems biology, and medical and health informatics with a particular focus on Neural Networks, Machine Learning, Fuzzy Logic, and Evolutionary Computation methods. Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2014 include, but are not limited to:
  • Next generation sequencing algorithms
  • Network Systems Biology
  • Multi omics data analysis
  • Methods for the integration of clinical and genetic data
  • Algorithms for alternative splicing analysis
  • Methods for functional classification of genes
  • Methods for unsupervised analysis, validation and visualization of
  • Structures discovered in bio-molecular data
  • Prediction of secondary and tertiary protein structures
  • Mass spectrometry data analysis in proteomics
  • Methods for comparative genomics
  • Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis
  • Mathematical modeling and simulation of biological systems
  • Heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics
  • Bio-molecular databases and data mining
  • Algorithms for pharmacogenomics
  • Biomedical text mining and imaging
  • Methods for diagnosis and prognosis
  • Software tools for bioinformatics
  • Health-Informatics and Medical Informatics.
CIBB 2014 is jointly organized by:
  • INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bioinformatics
  • INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bio-pattern
  • IEEE-CIS-BBCT Task forces on Neural Networks and Evolutionary Computation
  • Dipartimento di Informatica - University of Salerno, Italy

The scientific programs of CIBB 2014 will include Keynote Speakers, tutorial and special sessions. The contributed papers that will be presented in plenary oral sessions, special sessions, or poster sessions.
Accepted papers will be published on a flash drive with a specific ISBN number for the conference proceedings. A selection of papers presented at CIBB 2014 will appear in a post-conference monograph. We are in contact with Springer to have them published in the Springer series of Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) as usual for CIBB. Moreover, we are planning to publish the best papers in an extended form in a special issue of an international scientific journal.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format on the Easy Chair conference system.
Papers length should be at least 4 pages and should not exceed 6 pages; they must have five sections:

  1. 1. Scientific background
  2. 2. Material and methods
  3. 3. Results
  4. 4. Conclusion
  5. 5. References (no more than 10)
Please refer to the latex template for more accurate instructions.

Please note that only PDF versions of papers can be accepted, as the proceedings of CIBB will be produced starting from them.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed and the resulting scores used to determine invitations for oral or poster presentations. Following the conference, an extended version of the presented contributions (12 page format) will be considered for pubblication in the Springer's Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series. Moreover, a selection of the best papers will be considered for pubblication in a special issue of BMC Bioinformatics dedicated to CIBB2014.
