Submissions for oral and poster presentation are invited from researchers, practitioners and students worldwide. Prospective  authors  are invited  to  submit  papers  in  IEEE  format,  including  results,  figures,  and references. Accepted papers longer than six pages will have an additional per page charge.

Call for Special Sessions/Tutorials

Proposals for special sessions/tutorials within the technical scope of the conference are also encouraged. Special Sessions/tutorials  have become a traditional and important part of IEEE CIBCB. Papers submitted for special sessions are to be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the contributed papers. Special session/tutorial proposal should include the session title, a brief description of the scope, contact information and brief CV of the organizers/tutorial presenter(s).

Plenary Speakers

Byung-Jun Yoon, Ph.D., Texas A&M University: Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.


Dr. Byung-Jun Yoon received the B.S.E. (summa cum laude) degree from the Seoul National University (SNU), Seoul, Korea, in 1998, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Pasadena, in 2002 and 2007, respectively, all in Electrical Engineering. In 2008, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA, where he was an Assistant Professor during 2008-2014 and an Associate Professor since 2014. Recently, Dr. Yoon joined the College of Science and Engineering at the Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU), Doha, Qatar, as a founding faculty member, where he is currently an Associate Professor. Dr. Yoon is a recipient of the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER

 Award, a senior member of IEEE, and editorial board member for several international journals.

To date, Dr. Yoon has authored over 80 peer-reviewed scientific papers and he has organized or co-organized several international conferences and workshops in bioinformatics and computational network biology. One of his recent papers on probabilistic multiple RNA sequence alignment received the Best Paper Award at the 9th Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Conference (APBC 2011). Furthermore, his recent paper on efficient experimental design to reduce uncertainty in gene regulatory networks received the Best Paper Award at the 12th MCBIOS Conference. Dr. Yoon's main research interests include bioinformatics, computational network biology, machine learning, and signal processing.


Steven G. Rozen, Ph.D., Duke-NUS Medical School Singapore: Duke-NUS Centre for Computational Biology, Cancer and Stem Cell Biology Program.


Steve Rozen has made major scientific contributions in the areas of bioinformatics, human genetics, and cancer genomics. He earned a PhD in computer science from New York University, and then worked at the Whitehead-MIT Genome Center on the human genome project. There, he created the widely-used Primer3 software for PCR primer design. He also worked on sequencing the human, chimpanzee, rhesus monkey, and mouse Y chromosomes, and published extensively on mutations in human Y chromosomes and their clinical consequences.
Rozen came to Duke-NUS in 2008, when he began using high-throughput, genomic technologies to better understand cancer and potential therapies. He also founded and now directs the Duke-NUS Centre for Computational Biology. This Centre comprises five faculty, who are engaged in cutting-edge research and education, and who have published > 140 scientific papers since 2011. Rozen's own laboratory focuses on cancer genomics and is part of a team-science effort with Professors Bin Teh and Patrick Tan that has produced multiple high-profile papers. These include papers that used mutation signatures to trace the role of a particular herbal remedy in causing multiple types of cancer, and papers in top-level journals on mutations that cause stomach cancer, bile-duct cancers, and breast fibroepithelial tumors. This team leads the International Cancer Genome Consortium's research on bile-duct cancers and T- and NK-cell lymphomas. Rozen also co-leads the Consortium's Working Group on Mutation Signatures, which aims to computationally extract mutation signatures and deduce carcinogenic exposures in ~20,000 tumors.
