18th Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Conference (CIBB 2023)
6 - 8 September 2023
General Chairs
Martina Vettoretti, Erica Tavazzi, Enrico Longato, University of Padova
CIBB 2023 will take place on September 6-8 2023, in Padova, Italy, at the Multifunctional Psychology Hub of the University of Padova (Cittadella dello Studente, Via Venezia, 12, 35131 Padova PD). This year's in-person meeting will bring together researchers from the international scientific community interested in advancements and future perspectives in bioinformatics, biostatistics, and medical informatics. CIBB is also looking for contributions on current trends and future opportunities at the interface between computer and life sciences, and applications of computational intelligence to system and synthetic biology.
Theoretical and experimental biologists are also encouraged to participate and present their experiences in facing novel challenges to foster multidisciplinary collaboration.
Authors are invited to submit a short paper (4-6 pages) describing their original contribution in the fields of bioinformatics, biostatistics, systems and synthetic biology, and medical informatics. All accepted contributions will be presented in plenary oral sessions and special sessions.

In addition to the main track, the conference will provide a number of special sessions focused on specific scientific subjects. Special sessions focus on a specific, possibly cutting-edge topic of interest for the CIBB audience. Special session organisers will be responsible for disseminating their call for papers, managing the reviewing process, and chairing the oral presentations for their session. A special session should have at least 4 accepted papers (oral
presentations) and might have a proposed invited speaker. The submission of the special session proposals is currently open and the deadline for proposal submission is 19 February 2023
Special session proposals should include i) the session's title, ii) its scope, and iii) a short biography of the session chairs. The special session organisers may propose an invited speaker. To do so, the organisers should also submit a short bio of the speaker and a selection of their most relevant publications about CIBB-related topics. Invited speaker submissions will then be evaluated by the CIBB chairs. Reimbursement of travel expenses for the special session speakers will not be provided by CIBB.
