Call for Papers: Special Session for WCCI 2014: "Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics"

The special session "Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics" (CIB) is intended to bring together top researchers, practitioners, and students, from around the world. CIB will serve as a platform to discuss applications of Computational Intelligence in the field of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Bioengineering, for solving problems in medicine, pharmacy, health and life sciences, biology, and forensic sciences.

This CIB special session is sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Bioinformatics and Bioengineering (IEEE BBTC). Further details on the CIB session can be found at:

We cordially invite you to submit research articles in this special session.
We also encourage you to distribute this "call-for-papers" to your

WCCI 2014

The 2014 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (IEEE WCCI 2014) is the largest technical event in the field of computational intelligence. It will host three conferences: the 2014 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2014), the 2014 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2014), and the 2014 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2014).

IEEE WCCI 2014 will be held in Beijing, the capital of the People's  Republic of China. Beijing is the nation's political, economic, and  cultural center as well as China's most important center for international  trade and communications. The congress will provide a stimulating forum for scientists, engineers, educators, and students from all over the world to discuss and present their research findings on computational intelligence.

Important dates

Paper submission deadline:          December 20, 2013
Paper acceptance notification date: March 15, 2014
Final paper submission deadline:    April 15, 2014
Early registration Deadline:        April 15, 2014
Conference Dates:                   July 6-11, 2014

Paper Submission

Paper Submission: Electronic web submission in PDF format at the WCCI 2014 website: http://www.ieee-wcci2014.org/

Authors can select the conference through which they will like their  paper(s) to be reviewed and published (if accepted). When an author submits  a paper for a given track of the CIB special session, s/he should:

  1. select the conference associated with the given CIB track, and then
  2. tag the paper using the CIB name (available from the paper topic roll-down menu) as the first topic. The same paper can only appear in one conference proceeding and it will be available from IEEEXplore (from that proceeding).

Accepted papers will be integrated and presented in a coherent manner in one multi-disciplinary track at WCCI 2014. Each paper will be published in the proceedings of the conference that was selected for submission. The same paper will not appear in three conference proceedings, even if though  the CIB session may span three conferences.

We look forward to seeing you in Beijing, China!

With Best Regards,
