ACM SIGBioinformatics
(Special Interest Group in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Biomedical Informatics)

The ACM Special Interest Group on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology,
and Biomedical Informatics (SIGBioinformatics) has been established
since January 1, 2011 with the aim of focusing on research on bioinformatics
data management topics, roughly covered by the so-called biological and
bioomedical data, knowledge, and information management. The focus of
SIGBioinformatics is to bridge computer science, mathematics, statistics
with biology and biomedicine sharing research interests in the management
of data related to life sciences. The mission of ACM SIGBioinformatics is
to support advanced research, training, and outreach in Bioinformatics,
Computational Biology, and Biomedical Informatics by stimulating interactions
among researchers, educators and practitioners from related multi-disciplinary felds.

SIGBioinformatics membership rates:
Researchers are invited to join and participate in SIGBioinformatics activities.
SIGBioinformatics membership is open to both ACM members and non-members.
You can join at:

Membership rates are:
* Professional: 	 $25.00
* Students:	 $15.00
* Affiliate:	 $25.00
* Subscribers:	 $35.00

Professional and Student memberships refer to those who are already ACM Professional
or Student members, adding a SIGBioinformatics membership. Affiliate refers to any
non-ACM member who wishes to join SIG Bioinformatics, only. A subscriber is someone
who subscribes to the SIG Bioinformatics newsletter.

SIG Bioinformatics members will benefit for reduced registration fees at conferences
and workshops sponsored by SIGBioinformatics and conferences in cooperation with
SIGBioinformatics. One main conference sponsored by SIG Bioinformatics is:

ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Biomedicine (ACM-BCB)
Chicago, Illinois, August 1-3, 2011
