Until 2012, CIBB meetings were held annually in Italy with an increasing number of participants.
From 2004 to 2007, CIBB had the format of a special session of larger conferences, namely, WIRN 2004 in Perugia, WILF 2005 in Crema, FLINS 2006 in Genoa, and WILF 2007 in Camogli. Given the great success of the special session at WILF 2007 that included 26 strongly rated papers, the Steering Committee decided to turn CIBB into an autonomous conference starting with the 2008 edition in Vietri. The following editions in Italian venues were held in Genoa (2009), Palermo (2010) and Gargnano (2011).
CIBB 2012 was the first edition organized outside Italy, in Houston, while the 2013 edition was organized in Nice, France.

A rigorous peer-review selection process has been applied every time to ultimately select the papers included in the program of the conference, in the post-conference Proceedings published by LNBI-LNCS book series by Springer Verlag, and in some cases, selected papers were published in special issues of well qualified international journals.
