Conference Call for Papers

IEEE CIBCB 2019 – Call for Papers

Certosa di Pontignano (Siena), Tuscany (Italy) | July 9th-11th.

IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology has become a major technical event in the field of Computational Intelligence and its application to problems in biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, chemical informatics, bioengineering and related fields. It provides a global forum for academic and industrial scientists to discuss and present their latest research findings from theory to applications.

Keynote speakers:

– Pierre Baldi University of California, Irvine, USA (TBC)

– Riccardo Bellazzi University of Pavia, Italy

– Thomas Keane EMBL-EBI, Cambridge, UK

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of 2 to 4 pages (short papers) or of 5 to 8 pages (complete papers) including results, figures and references, or poster abstracts. At maximum, two additional pages are permitted with over-length page charge of US$100/page, to be paid during author registration. Papers must be in PDF and written in English. Detailed instructions and templates for preparing your manuscript can be found here:

The deadline for paper submission is by February 15, 2019. Each paper will be peer-reviewed. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be indexed in IEEE Xplore®. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register ( and present the paper at the conference. All papers should be submitted via the EasyChair online submission system. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.

Special Issues

After the conference, prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts to a Special Issue in \”Deep Learning for Genomics/Bioinformatics\” to be published in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. The Special Issue is open to anyone, i.e. having an accepted paper at CIBCB 2019 is not a requirement. Papers accepted at CIBCB 2019 need to be extended significantly before being submitted to the Special Issue.

All works presented at the event and related to other topics will be invited to submit for a Special Issue on an International peer-review journal with IF (to be announced).

Important Dates:

– Paper submission deadline: February 15, 2019

– Final (revised) paper submission deadline: May 31, 2019

– Abstract submission deadline: May 31, 2019


We particularly encourage submissions in emerging topics of high importance for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

CI in Bioinformatics:

– Single cell and bulk transcriptomics

– Machine learning and artificial intelligence in bioinformatics

– Regulatory networks reconstruction/robustness/evolvability

– MicroRNA analysis
