Call for papers (Coming soon!)

The 2020 International Conference on Intelligent Biology and Medicine (ICIBM 2020) will be held on August 9-11, 2020 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. You are invited to submit abstracts with unpublished original work describing recent advances on all aspects of bioinformatics, Systems Biology and intelligent Computing, including but not restricted to the following topics:

Systems Biology:

  1. Mathematical and quantitative models of cellular and multi-cellular systems.
  2. Modeling and simulation of biological processes, pathways and networks.
  3. Multi-dimensional omics data integration.
  4. Metabolomics.
  5. Synthetic biological systems.
  6. Applications of systems biology approaches to biomedical studies.
  7. Self-organization in living systems (cells, organisms, swarms, ecosystems, etc.)


  1. Next generation sequencing data analysis, applications, software and tools.
  2. Genomics and genetics, including integrative and functional genomics and genome evolution.
  3. Personalized medicine and translational bioinformatics.
  4. Big data science including storage, analysis, modeling and visualization.
  5. Proteomics, protein structure prediction, molecular simulation and evolution.
  6. Drug discovery, design and repurposing.
  7. Image analysis and processing.

Intelligent Computing:

  1. Evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence/optimization, ensemble methods.
  2. Machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition and knowledge and discovery.
  3. Natural langue processing, literature mining, semantic ontology and date privacy.
  4. Neural computing, kernel, methods, feature selection/extraction.
  5. Manifold learning theory, artificial life and artificial immune systems.

Medical informatics:

  1. Cohort discovery, EHR-based phenotyping, Predictive Modeling.
  2. Data quality assessment or validation.
  3. Mental Health.
  4. Decision support solutions.
  5. Interoperability (e.g., ontology, terminology, and others).
  6. Machine learning for clinical applications.
  7. Mobile health and wearable devices.

Paper Submission: (Coming soon!)

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. Pending agreement with the publishers, selected papers of the registered authors will be published in special issues of several journals, including BMC Genomics, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Medical Genomics, BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, International Journal of Computational Biology and Drug Design (IJCBDD), and Genes. Authors need to prepare manuscripts in the format of the corresponding journal that they prefer.

Paper or abstract submission is not yet open.

Travel Awards: (Coming soon!)

The conference will provide 20 travel awards to students/postdocs via a NSF grant, if successfully funded. All awardees were notified by email.
