Bioinformatics and Bioengineering are complementary disciplines that 
hold great promise for the advancement of research and development in 
complex biomedical systems, agricultural, environmental, pharmaceutical 
and medical sciences as well as public health, drug designs, genomics 
and so on. The 7th IEEE BIBE provides a common platform for the cross 
fertilization of ideas, to help shape knowledge and scientific 
achievements by bridging these two very important and complementary 
disciplines into an interactive and attractive forum. The 7th IEEE BIBE 
is a large international conference with 7 years of tradition and 
leading reputation.

The synergy of bioinformatics and bioengineering has been well received 
by researchers. This year, the 7th IEEE BIBE has received more than 500 
high-quality full research papers. Each paper was reviewed and ranked by 
at least 3 professors in the program and scientific review committee. As 
a result of the rigorous review process and stringent evaluation, 12% of 
papers has been accepted as full regular research papers. The 200+ 
Professors in the program and scientific review committee have spent 
tremendous amount of time and efforts for this academic event in 
evaluating all submitted papers. The anticipated participation would 
exceed 500 people, most of them from academia, medical and research 
centers. The 7th IEEE BIBE is a large international gathering that is 
aimed to promote synergistic  multidisciplinary research and education 
to solve important but difficult biomedical problems that need both 
expertise in biomedical sciences and engineering.

Major organizers of the 7th IEEE BIBE who hold formal degrees in the 
fields of both engineering and biophysical/biomedical sciences with many 
years of research, teaching and engineering practice experiences 
realized the power and needs of synergistic engineering and biomedical 
research based on their professional experience. They and all other 
organizers are dedicated to promote such inter/multidisciplinary 
research and education. Therefore, the 7th IEEE BIBE has been designed 
to be responsive to the need for synergistic inter/multidisciplinary 
research and education. For that reason, it is the only meeting whose 
components are defined dynamically in response to specific needs of 
largest number of keynote lectures, cutting-edge research tutorial 
lectures, special interest research workshops and special sessions with 
academic supports and contributions from leading scientists at NIH, 
national laboratories and research universities. Each proposal and 
nomination has been reviewed and voted by the 7th IEEE BIBE committee to 
ensure that participants will be benefited significantly from the 
academic event. The symposium is very grateful for the Keynote Lectures 
given by:

Dr.  Keith Dunker       (Indiana University and Purdue University),
Dr. Andy Baxevanis   (National Human Genome Research Institute, National 
Institutes of Health (NIH), United States Department of Health and Human
