ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and
Biomedicine (ACM-BCB 2012): Call for Papers

Deadlines: May 7, 2012 (Abstract submission), May 14, 2012 (Paper submission)

Conference Dates: October 7-10  2012
Conference Venue: Embassy Suites, Downtown Orlando, FL

Conference Website: http://www.cse.buffalo.edu/ACM-BCB2012/

ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and
Biomedicine (ACM BCB) is the main flagship conference of the ACM SIG
Bioinformatics. ACM BCB 2012 is in its third year, building upon the
success of ACM BCB 2010 in Niagara Falls and ACM BCB 2011 in Chicago.
Each of the conference had about 200 attendees. ACM BCB 2012 will be
held in Orlando from October 7-10, 2012.

The conference will provide a premier forum for interdisciplinary and
multidisciplinary research encompassing disciplines of computer
science, mathematics, statistics, biology, bioinformatics, and
biomedicine. The last two decades have led to a tremendous growth in
the size and dimensionality of biological and biomedical data. This
conference serves to provide information on leading edge in research
in processing, modeling and analyzing these datasets for a variety of

The tracks that will be covered include:
•       Systems biology
•       Protein & RNA structure
•       Text mining for biomedical studies
•       Comparative genomics, population & cancer genomics
•       Algorithms for sequence analysis
•       Bioimage Analysis
•       Databases, Knowledgebases & Ontologies

Contributed Papers: ACM BCB’ 12 welcomes original submissions that
have not been published and that are not under review by another
conference or journal.  Papers should not exceed 8 pages in ACM
template on 8.5 x 11 inch paper (see ACM templates). All submissions
will be evaluated on their originality, technical soundness,
significance, presentation, and interest to the conference attendees.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to
register and present the work associated with the paper submitted. All
submitted papers will be reviewed by ACM-BCB’s technical program
committee. All accepted papers of registered authors will be included
in the proceedings published by ACM digital libraries. Selected papers
will be invited to adapt their papers for their publication in several
journals. All accepted papers will be required to submit an online ACM
Copyright Form. Authors will be contacted by ACM requesting this
information. Submissions must not exceed 8 letter-size pages using the
ACM format for conference proceedings.  Details for the submission
website will be released soon.
