In Collaboration with:


Universitat de Vic



The purpose of the International Conference on Bioinformatics Models,
Methods and Algorithms is to bring together researchers and practitioners
interested in the application of computational systems and information
technologies to the field of molecular biology, including for example the
use of statistics and algorithms to understanding biological processes and
systems, with a focus on new developments in genome bioinformatics and
computational biology. Areas of interest for this community include sequence
analysis, biostatistics, image analysis, scientific data management and data
mining, machine learning, pattern recognition, computational evolutionary
biology, computational genomics and other related fields.


BIOINFORMATICS encourages authors to submit papers to one of the main topics
indicated below, describing original work, including methods, techniques,
advanced prototypes, applications, systems, tools or survey papers,
reporting research results and/or indicating future directions. Accepted
papers will be presented at the conference by one of the authors and
published in the proceedings. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance
and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexers.

Special sessions are also welcome. Please contact the secretariat for
further information on how to propose a special session. 



BIOINFORMATICS 2013 is part of the International Joint Conference on
Biomedical Engineering Systems and Tecnologies (BIOSTEC 2013) that has 3
more conferences with very strong synergies between them, namely:


- BIODEVICES: International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices


- BIOSIGNALS: International Conference on Bio-inspired Systems and Signal
Processing (http://www.biosignals.biostec.org/)


- HEALTHINF: International Conference on Health


These four concurrent conferences are held in parallel and registration to
one warrants delegates to attend all four.


BIOSTEC Keynote Speakers


Pedro Gómez Vilda, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain

Christian Jutten, GIPSA-lab, France

Adam Kampff, Champalimaud Foundation, Portugal





All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the
conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the
SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/).

SciTePress is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).


A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and
extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a
CCIS Series book.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters
Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI.



Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session.
