2016 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine

Dec 15-18,   2016, Shenzhen,  China,

The IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM)
has established itself as the premier research conference in bioinformatics
and biomedicine. IEEE BIBM 2016 provides a leading forum for disseminating
the latest research in bioinformatics and health informatics. It brings
together academic and industrial scientists from computer science, biology,
chemistry, medicine, mathematics and statistics.

We solicit high-quality original research papers (including significant
work-in-progress) in any aspect of bioinformatics and biomedicine. *New
computa*t*ional techniques and *me*thods in machine learning; data mining;
text analysis; *pa*ttern recognition;* k*nowledge r*epresentation;
databases; data modeling; combinatorics; stochastic modeling; string and
graph algorithms; linguistic methods; robotics; constraint satisfaction;
data visualization; parallel computation; data integration; modeling and
simulation and their application in life science domain are especially
encouraged Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

The Industrial Track solicits papers describing implementations of
Bioinformatics and Biomedicine solutions relevant to industrial settings.
The focus of industry track is on papers that address the practical,
applied, or pragmatic or new research challenge issues related to the use
of bioinformatics and biomedicine technologies in industry. We accept full
papers (up to 8 pages), extended abstracts (2-4 pages), as well as short
abstracts (1 page, 500 words).

·         *Journal special issues:* IEEE BIBM has a tradition to publish
selected papers as special issues in highly respected journals. We will
publish the special issues publications with 8 journals:* IEEE Transactions
on NanoBiosceince, * *IEEE/ACM Transactions on Bioinformatics and
Computational Biology, International Journal of Data Mining and
Bioinformatics*, *  Proteomics, BMC Genomics, BMC Bioinformatics, **BMC
Complementary and Alternative Medicine, * *Journal of Network Modeling and
Analysis in Health Informatics and Bioinformatics, Methods *(In the past
BIBM conference, the number of special issues is IEEE BIBM 2015 – 9 special
issues, : BIBM 2014 – 10 special issues, BIBM 2013 –9 special issues, BIBM
2012—8 special issues, BIBM 2011—8 special issue,  BIBM 2010—7 special
issues, BIBM 2009—4 special issues; BIBM 2008—4 special issues)

·         *Student Travel Award: *BIBM 2016 will offer* as many as possible
student travel awards *to student authors (including post-doc). We have
received a NSF grant for student travel award and expect to offer 25-30
student travel awards.   (*BIBM 2015 – 30 student travel award*, *BIBM
2014—25 student travel awards*, *BIBM 2013—40 student travel awards*, *BIBM
2012 -30 student travel awards*, *BIBM 2011—28 student travel awards*, *BIBM
2010-22 student travel awards,  BIBM 2009—16 student travel awards* )
