The 2018 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (IEEE BIBM 2018) being held in Madrid, Spain from December 3-6, 2018. On behalf of the IEEE BIBM 2018 Organizing Team, we would like to thank you for your participation and hope you enjoy the conference. Bioinformatics and biomedicine research is fundamental to our understanding of complex biological systems, impacting on science and technology in fields ranging from agricultural and environmental sciences to pharmaceutical and medical sciences. This type of research requires close collaboration among multidisciplinary teams of researchers in computer science, statistics, physics, engineering, life sciences and medical sciences, and their interfaces. The IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine aims to provide an open and interactive forum to catalyze the cross-fertilization of ideas from these disciplines and to bridge gaps in our knowledge. The IEEE BIBM 2018 promises to provide great scientific quality and to have a broad impact, with world renowned scientists as keynote speakers and invited speakers, contributed talks at a highly competitive acceptance rate, special issue publications in high-caliber scientific journals, and a broad participation of the research communities serving on the Program Committee and the organizing committees for workshops, tutorials, and posters. The scientific program highlights five themes to provide breadth, depth, and synergy for research collaboration: (1) genomics and molecular structure, function, and evolution; (2) computational systems biology; (3) medical informatics and translational bioinformatics; (4) cross-cutting computational methods and bioinformatics infrastructures, and (5) healthcare informatics, which includes approximately 20 topics.
