The 11th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference and all its associated events will be held virtually. The conference is the premier conference dedicated to interdisciplinary research linking computer science, mathematics, statistics, biology, bioinformatics, biomedical informatics, and health informatics. The past few decades have seen tremendous growth in the scale and complexity of biological and medical data including recent mainstream recognition of big data challenges. This conference serves to showcase leading-edge research on new technologies and techniques around gathering, processing, analyzing, and modeling of data and information for a variety of scientific, clinical, and healthcare applications, from bench to bedside.

ACM-BCB 2020 welcomes original submissions that have not been published or under review. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM-BCB conference proceedings and appear in the ACM Digital Library (note that ACM copyright permissions are directly compatible with NIH and similar open-access policies, see for more information). A subset of selected papers will be invited for being published in a special issue of the IEEE/ACM Transaction on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB), or a special issue of the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI). In addition, there is a separate Highlights track for authors who wish to present platform talks for papers that have recently appeared in refereed journals; see the conference website ( for more information.

Examples of relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Sequence Analysis
  • Genomic Variation and Disease
  • Haplotypes and Population Genomics
  • Protein and RNA Analysis, Structure, and Dynamics
  • Metagenomics and Algorithms for Microbiomes
  • Cancer Genomics
  • Infectious Disease Networks and Computational Epidemiology
  • Systems Biology
  • Phylogenetics
  • Biological Networks and Integrative Analysis
  • Computational Drug Discovery
  • Biological Modeling
  • Imaging Genomics and Radiation Genomics
  • Automated Diagnosis and Prediction
  • Application to Healthcare Processes
  • Clinical Databases and Information Systems
  • Text Mining and Classification
  • Knowledge Representation Applications
  • Advancing Algorithms and Methods
  • Big Data in Bioinformatics

geplant in Atlanta, GA Aug 30-sep 2,20
