The main goal of 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 2012 is jointly organized by:
  *INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bioinformatics
  *INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Biopattern
  *IEEE-CIS-BBCT Task force on Neural Networks
  *TMHRI The Methodist Hospital Research Institute
  *Weill Cornell Medical College
  *DISI Dept. Computer and Information Sciences - Univ. Genova (Italy)
  *SHRO Sbarro Health Research Organization

with the sponsorship of:
  *GNCS Gruppo Nazionale Calcolo Scientifico (Italy)
  *SIREN Italian Neural Networks Society
  *RNBIO The Italian Network for Oncology Bioinformatics
  *DMI Dipartimento di Matematica e Informatica - Univ. Salerno (Italy)

 Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2012 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 functional classification of genes
  * Methods for 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 modeling and simulation of biological systems
  * Heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics
  * Biomolecular databases and data mining
  * Algorithms for pharmacogenetics
  * Biomedical text mining and imaging
  * Methods for diagnosis and prognosis
  * Software tools for bioinformatics

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

Accepted papers will be published on a flash drive with a specific ISBN
number for the conference proceedings. A selection of papers presented at
CIBB 2012 will appear in a post-conference monograph published by an
international publisher.  Moreover, we are planning to publish the best
papers in an extended form in a special issue of an international
scientific journal.
