*CIBB 2015*
*12th International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods for 
Bioinformatics and Biostatistics*

*CNR Research Area “Napoli 1”, Naples, Italy**
**September 10-12, 2015**

*Scope of CIBB 2015*

CIBB (Computational Intelligence methods for Bioinformatics and 
Biostatistics) is a meeting with more than 10-year history. Its main 
goal is to provide a forum open to researchers from different 
disciplines to present problems concerning computational techniques in 
bioinformatics, systems biology and medical informatics, to discuss 
cutting edge methodologies and accelerate life science discoveries.
Following this tradition and roots, this year's meeting will bring 
together researchers from the international scientific community 
interested in this field to discuss the advancements and the future 
perspectives in bioinformatics and biostatistics. Applied biologists are 
also invited to participate in order to propose novel challenges aimed 
to have high impact for molecular biology and translational medicine.

*Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2015 include, but are not limited to:*

             High dimensional statistical analysis of omic data;
             Next generation sequencing bioinformatics;
             Multi-omic data integration;
             Methods for supervised and unsupervised learning;
             Prediction of protein structures;
             Methods for comparative genomics;
             Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis;
             Mathematical modelling and simulation of biological systems;
             Systems and synthetic biology;
             Bio-molecular databases and data mining;
             Bio-medical text mining and imaging;
             Statistical methods for the analysis of clinical data;
             Methods for the visualization of high dimensional complex 
omic data;
             Software tools for bioinformatics.

*CIBB 2015 is jointly organized by:*

•    INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bioinformatics
•    INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bio-pattern
•    IEEE-CIS-BBCT Task forces on Neural Networks and Evolutionary 
•    Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo, “M. Picone”, CNR Napoli

The scientific programs of CIBB 2015 will include Keynote Speakers, 
contributed papers, tutorial and special sessions. The contributed 
papers will be presented in plenary oral sessions, special sessions, or 
poster sessions.


Accepted papers will be published on a flash drive with a specific ISBN 
number for the conference proceedings. A selection of papers presented 
at CIBB 2015 will appear in a post-conference monograph. We are in 
contact with Springer to have them published in the Springer series of 
Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) as usual for CIBB. Moreover, we 
are planning to publish the best papers in an extended form in a special 
issue of an international scientific journal.
