ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Biomedicine

Chicago, Illinois, August 1-3, 2011

The ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and
Biomedicine (ACM BCB) is the main conference of the newly formed ACM
SIG Bioinformatics.

This is the second year of the ACM BCB Conference. Over 200 people
attended ACM BCB 10, which took place in Niagara Falls, NY on August
2-4, 2010.

ACM BCB 11 will be held in Chicago at the Hilton Suites Chicago –
Magnificent Mile from August 1-3, 2011. The conference welcomes high
quality, original research papers. Papers should contain new
algorithms or novel computational approaches in the broad areas of
bioinformatics, computational biology and biomedicine. Papers that
use existing computational techniques in new and interesting ways
leading to novel biological discoveries are also welcome.
