Call for papers

The 2016 International Conference on Intelligent Biology and Medicine (ICIBM 2016) will be held on December 8-10, 2016 in Houston, Texas, USA. You are invited to submit abstracts with unpublished original work describing recent advances on all aspects of bioinformatics, Systems Biology and intelligent Computing, including but not restricted to the following topics:

Bioinformatics:

  1. Genomics and genetics, including integrative and functional genomics and genome evolution.
  2. Next generation sequencing data analysis, applications, software and tools.
  3. Big data science including storage, analysis, modeling and visualization.
  4. Personalized medicine and translational bioinformatics.
  5. Drug discovery, design and repurposing.
  6. Proteomics, protein structure prediction, molecular simulation and evolution.
  7. Image analysis and processing.

Systems Biology:

  1. Modeling and simulation of biological processes, pathways and networks.
  2. Mathematical and quantitative models of cellular and multi-cellular systems.
  3. Multi-dimensional omics data integration.
  4. Synthetic biological systems.
  5. Metabolomics.
  6. Self-organization in living systems (cells, organisms, swarms, ecosystems, etc.)
  7. Applications of systems biology approaches to biomedical studies.

Intelligent Computing:

  1. Machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition and knowledge and discovery.
  2. Natural langue processing, literature mining, semantic ontology and date privacy.
  3. Neural computing, kernel, methods, feature selection/extraction.
  4. Evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence/optimization, ensemble methods.
  5. Manifold learning theory, artificial life and artificial immune systems.

Paper Submission and Publication:

Prospective authors are invited to submit unpublished work to ICIBM 2016. All papers and abstracts will be submitted through EasyChair Conference System. Detailed information is available through: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icibm20160

By submitting your paper to ICIBM'16, you implicitly state that the paper is based on your own original research and that it was not and will not be submitted elsewhere. All submitted papers should be written in English. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the work associated with the paper submitted.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The accepted papers of registered authors will be published in special issues of several journals, including BMC Systems BiologyBMC Genomics, BMC Bioinformatics and International Journal of Computational Biology and Drug Design (IJCBDD). Authors need to prepare manuscripts in the format of the corresponding journal that they prefer. Although we try our best to accommodate authors’ preferences, the competition is high and there is no guarantee that all accepted papers will be published in authors’ preferred journals. We will contact individual authors in that case. The authors agree to pay the publication fees to the journals (there is no publication fee for the papers published in IJCBDD).

You are invited to submit a paper or abstract through the website at

Abstract Submission

Participants who do not submit papers are encouraged to submit abstract through the website above (see future updates online)

The size of the poster board is 4 x 4. Please ensure that your poster is within the range. Posters will be displayed on each side of the poster board.

Travel Awards:

Up to 20 travel awards are available to students/postdocs. These awards are granted through an NSF grant. The students/postdocs who are the first author of the abstract are qualified for the application. Please visit the website for more information.

Other Information:

  1. If you have any questions, please contact us by email icibm2016-0@easychair.org.
  2. Medical Informatics Thematic Track
