The International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology 
(BICOB) is one of the main conferences in bioinformatics and 
computational biology in North America. The 10th International 
Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (/BICOB-2018/) 
will be held between 19–21 March 2018 in Las Vegas, USA.  BICOB-2018 
will provide a vibrant atmosphere and venue for bioinformatics and 
computational biology researchers to present and publish their research 
results, investigations, and studies. In recent years, most areas of 
bioinformatics, computational biology and medical informatics have 
experienced significant advances driven by computational techniques in 
bioinformatics. Moreover, bioinformatics and computational biology 
continue to be a vibrant research area with broadening applications and 
new emerging challenges.  BICOB-2018 seeks original and high quality 
contributions in the fields of bioinformatics, computational biology, 
systems biology, medical informatics and the related areas. The 
conference includes a *Best Paper Award* to be presented 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 limited to):

• *Genome analysis:* Genome assembly, Next-Gen genomics and 
metagenomics, genome and chromosome annotation, gene finding, 
alternative splicing, EST analysis and comparative genomics.

• *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.

• *Systems biology:* Systems approaches to molecular biology, multiscale 
modeling, pathways, gene networks, transcriptomics - microarray data 
analysis, proteomics, epigenetics.

• *Healthcare Informatics:* healthcare data acquisition, analysis and 
mining. Clinical decision support systems, and healthcare information 

• *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, Query Languages, Interoperability, 
Bio-ontology and bio-data Mining.

• *Genetics and population analysis:* Linkage analysis, association 
analysis, population simulation, haplotyping, marker discovery, genotype 

Moreover, BICOB welcomes submissions in all areas of computing with 
impact on life sciences including algorithms, databases, languages, 
systems, and high performance computing. For example: Parallel and 
high-performance techniques, Computational biology on emerging 
architectures and hardware accelerators.

_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, and email of the principal 
author, should be submitted online at the submission website: 
<> on or before*October 
31, 2017. *The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final 
paper as it will appear in the Proceedings.  Maximum paper length for 
the proceedings is six pages, with up to two additional pages accepted 
with page charges (6+2).  ISCA double-column format will be used. 
Accepted papers will be indexed in Scopus, EI, and INSPEC, and submitted 
to DBLP for indexing. All BICOB-2018 Proceedings papers will be 
accessible and available online at 
<> and also will appear in Google scholar full text.

_Journal Publication__:_**Authors of selected high quality papers in 
BICOB-2018 will be invited to submit extended version of their papers 
for possible publication in bioinformatics journals including Journal of 
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology /JBCB/ (/selected papers in 
previous BICOB conferences were published in JBCB/).

_Indexing:_ Accepted papers will be indexed in Scopus, EI, and INSPEC, 
and submitted to DBLP for indexing. All BICOB-2018 Proceedings papers 
will be accessible and available online at 
<> and also will appear in Google scholar full text.
