About BIBM 2008


IEEE BIBM 2008 will provide a general forum for disseminating the latest research in bioinformatics and biomedicine. It is a multidisciplinary conference that brings together academic and industrial scientists from computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics and statistics. It will exchange research results and address open issues in all aspects of bioinformatics and biomedicine and provide a forum for the presentation of work in databases, algorithms, interfaces, visualization, modeling, simulation, ontologyand other computational methods, as applied to life science problems, with emphasis on applications in high throughput data-rich areas in biology, biomedical engineering. IEEE BIBM 2008 intends to attract a balanced combination of computer scientists, biologists, biomedical engineers, chemist, data analyzer, statistician.

Selected papers will be invited for publication in the following 4journal special issues

- IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine

- BMC Bioinformatics
