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
