CIBB 2023


CIBB’s main goal is to provide a multidisciplinary forum for researchers interested in the application of computational intelligence, in a broad sense, to open problems in bioinformatics, biostatistics, systems and synthetic biology, and medical informatics. 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 experience 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. Authors of accepted short papers are encouraged to post their short papers on preprint servers such as arXiv, bioRxiv, or medRxiv.

After the conference, the authors of all the accepted short papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit an extended version of their manuscripts to the conference proceedings book in Springer Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI), or to a supplement in a journal such as BMC Bioinformatics or BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making.


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, 16, 35131 Padova PD). Padova is in a strategic location, just 40 km from Venice and its artistic treasures.


The final programme of the conference will include keynotes, a main track, and several special sessions. Each oral presentation is expected to last up to 15 minutes.
