                         CIBB 2009
                SIXTH INTERNATIONAL MEETING ON
COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE METHODS FOR BIOINFORMATICS AND BIOSTATISTICS
                Genova (Italy) 15-17 October, 2009
       Conference Website: http://cibb09.disi.unige.it/                        
                            
The main goal of the CIBB meetings is to provide a forum open to researchers
from different disciplines to present and discuss problems concerning
computational techniques in bioinformatics, systems biology and medical
informatics with a particular focus on Neural Networks, Machine Learning, 
Fuzzy Logic, and Evolutionary Computation methods.

CIBB 2009 is jointly organized by:
  *INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bioinformatics 
  *GNCS Gruppo Nazionale Calcolo Scientifico
  *HHF  Human Health Foundation Onlus
  *SIREN  Italian Neural Networks Society
  *RNBIO The Italian Network for Oncology Bioinformatics        
  *DISI Dept. Computer and Information Sciences - Univ. Genova (Italy)  
  *DMI Dipartimento di Matematica e Informatica - Univ. Salerno (Italy)
 
 
Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2009 include, but are not limited to:
    * Sequence analysis, promoter analysis and identification of transcription
       factor binding sites
    * Gene expression data analysis
    * Methods for the integration of clinical and genetic data
    * Algorithms for alternative splicing analysis
    * Methods for the functional classification of genes
    * Methods for the unsupervised analysis, validation and visualization of
       structures discovered in bio-molecular data
    * Prediction of secondary and tertiary protein structures
    * Mass spectrometry data analysis in proteomics
    * Methods for comparative genomics
    * Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis
    * Mathematical modelling and simulation of biological systems
    * Heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics
    * Bio-molecular databases and data mining
    * Algorithms for pharmacogenetics
    * Bio-medical text mining and imaging
    * Methods for diagnosis and prognosis
    * Software tools for bioinformatics
                          
Gilles Bernot (University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France) and L. Gwenn 
Volkert 
(Kent State University, OH, USA) have confirmed to deliver an invited talk 
at CIBB 2009.

The scientific program will include, besides some plenary talks, contributed
papers that will be presented in plenary oral or poster sessions.

Accepted papers will be published in the compact disk of conference 
proceedings. 
A selection of papers presented at CIBB 2009 will be published a in post 
conference 
volume printed by an international publisher.  Moreover, we are planning to 
publish 
the best papers in extended form in a special issue of an international 
scientific 
journal.
