This conference will bring together top researchers, practitioners, academics and students from around the globe to discuss the latest advances in the field of computational intelligence and its informatics, bioengineering and related fields. Computational intelligence approaches include artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary algorithms, hybrid algorithms and other emerging techniques.

Submissions will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be indexed in IEEE Xplorer. Selected papers, after a substantial extension, will be considered for publication in special issue of Elsevier’s Biosystems journal.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Gene expression array analysis
  • Neuromorphic integration of bio- and neuroinformatics
  • Structure prediction and folding
  • Molecular sequence alignment and analysis
  • Metabolic pathway analysis
  • RNA and protein folding and structure prediction
  • Analysis and visualisation of large biological data sets
  • Motif detection
  • Molecular evolution and phylogenetics
  • Systems and synthetic biology
  • Health: physical and mental
  • Modeling, simulation, and optimisation of biological systems
  • Robustness and evolvability of biological networks
  • Emergent properties in complex biological systems
