BSB Symposium

BSB Symposium

The Brazilian Symposium on Bioinformatics 2014 is an initiative sponsored by the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação, and its special interest group in Computational Biology.

BSB provides a general forum for presentation and discussion of original research on COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY, BIOINFORMATICS and SYSTEMS BIOLOGY. BSB 2014 would like to attract contributions from academic and industrial researchers, both in the exact sciences (computer science, mathematics and statistics) and in the life sciences (molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, medicine, microbiology and others).

BSB 2014 will accept both full papers (for oral presentation) and short papers (to be presented as posters). Proceedings containing accepted full papers will be published as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics series, from Springer. We also expect to have best papers invited for revised and expanded submission to a special issue in an international journal.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

  •     Molecular Sequence Analysis, Motifs, and Pattern Matching
  •     Biological Databases, Data Management, Data Integration, and Data Mining
  •     Structural and Functional Genomics
  •     Comparative Genomics
  •     Protein Structure and Modeling
  •     Gene Identification, Regulation and Expression
  •     Gene Networks
  •     Molecular Evolution and Phylogenetics
  •     Computational Systems Biology
  •     Computational Proteomics
  •     Statistical Analysis of Molecular Sequences
  •     Big data applications in Bioinformatics


    Submission deadline: July 17th, 2014.

    Author notification: August 7th, 2014.

    Final version due: August 19th, 2014.

    Poster deadline: August 15th, 2014.
