CIBB 2019 - 16th International Conference on Computational Intelligence
methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics

Bergamo, Italy, 4-6 September 2019


The main goal of the 16th edition of the CIBB international conference is
to provide a multi-disciplinary forum open to researchers interested in the
application of computational intelligence, in a broad sense, to open
problems in bioinformatics, biostatistics, systems biology, synthetic
biology, and medical informatics. Cutting edge methodologies capable of
accelerating life science discoveries will be discussed.

Following its tradition and roots, this year's meeting will bring together
researchers from the international scientific community interested in
advancements and future perspectives in bioinformatics and biostatistics.
In addition, looking at current trends and future opportunities at the edge
of computer and life sciences, the application of computational
intelligence to systems and synthetic biology, and the consequent impact on
innovative medicine, will be of great interest for the conference.
Theoretical and experimental biologists are also invited to participate and
present novel challenges to foster multidisciplinary collaborations.

The scientific program of CIBB 2019 will include Keynote Speakers,
tutorials and special sessions. Contributed papers will be presented in
plenary oral sessions, special sessions, or poster sessions.



Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

   - Next generation sequencing algorithms

   - Multi-omics data analysis

   - High dimensional statistical analysis of omics data

   - Algorithms for alternative splicing analysis

   - Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis
