InCoB2013 (http://ictbi.imed-cn.org/incob2013/) will be held in Taicang (China), Sep 20-22, 2013. The main hosts are Taicang Center for Translational Bioinformatics (TCTB), Center for Systems Biology (CSB), Soochow University and Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet).

InCoB2013 has overall objective to provide a platform for experts and budding bioinformaticians to discuss and exchange ideas and thoughts on the development of bioinformatics in the Asia Pacific region. Beginning in 2002, InCoB has grown to become one of the largest bioinformatics conferences in the Asia-Pacific region. This annual conference exhibits the latest researches and technologies in all areas of bioinformatics and now it is attended by practitioners from both biology fields and computing backgrounds in the Asia-Pacific region.

The theme for InCoB2013 will be "Biomedical Informatics in the Big Data Era: Data-Driven Biology and Medicine". Therefore, the conference aims to promote the integration of bioinformatics, imaging informatics, clinical informatics and health informatics for understanding of complex biological and medical phenomenon as well as to encourage the exchange of scientific breakthrough amongst participants. InCoB2013 will include the latest bioinformatics and related topics on translational bioinformatics, population genetics, drug design and discovery, biomarker identification, systems biology, biological sequence analysis, expression data analysis, scalable data storage and other relevant subjects.

Besides InCoB2013, the 2nd International Conference on Translational Biomedical Informatics (ICTBI 2013 http://ictbi.imed-cn.org/ictbi2013) is jointly hosted by TCTB and CSB at the same time period and venue.
