Second Call for Papers

Large-scale and HPC data analysis in bioinformatics: 
Intelligent methods for computational, systems and synthetic biology.

26-28 June 2014  
University of Cambridge, UK


Special Session of CIBB 2014:

Eleventh International Meeting on 
Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics

*** Submission deadline: 5th May 2014 ***


Biomedical research is currently facing the Big Data wave created by the 
huge amount of experiments performed every day in omics sciences. 
This new situation demands appropriate IT-infrastructures and scalable 
software to analyse data within an acceptable timespan. Massive parallel 
clusters, distributed technologies, on-Chip solutions such as GPGPU and 
Xeon Phi must be exploited with adequate algorithmic solutions to reach 
their full potential. 

The aim of this special session is to bring together researchers interested in 
cutting-edge methods to address the challenges posed by the huge amount 
of data produced in omics science. The idea is to present the latest 
advancements concerning High Performance Computing solutions required 
to treat multi-omics data and the related Big Data paradigms that are needed 
to manage the large-scale challenges of current computational biology. 

Examples of relevant areas of interest within this context include - but are not 
limited to -

- Next-Generation Sequencing data analysis and interpretation, 
- Genomics patterns identification and mining, 
- Transcriptomics and Proteomics data integration, 
- Systems Biology models simulation and optimization, 
- Structural Biology and Molecular Dynamics, 
- Synthetic Biology circuits design and simulation.



Papers should be submitted in PDF format on the Easy Chair conference system. 
Paper length should be at least 4 pages and should not exceed 6 pages. 
Papers are required to be structured according to the following five sections:

	• 1. Scientific background
	• 2. Material and methods
	• 3. Results
	• 4. Conclusion
	• 5. References (no more than 10)

(Please refer to the latex template on the web page for more accurate instructions).
Please note that only PDF versions of papers can be accepted, as the proceedings 
of CIBB will be produced starting from them.

A correct submission requires selecting this special session in the submission system. 


Each paper will be peer-reviewed and the resulting scores used to determine invitations
for oral or poster presentations. 

Following the conference, an extended version of the presented contributions (12 page 
format) will be considered for publication in the Springer’s Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics 
(LNBI) series. 

Moreover, a selection of the best papers will be considered for pu	blication in a special 
issue of BMC Bioinformatics dedicated to CIBB2014.


Paper submission: 		5th May 2014
Acceptance notification: 	10th May 2014
Camera ready due: 		30th May 2014
Conference: 			26th - 28th June 2014
