Call For Papers
The 12th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. The 2021 ACM-BCB conference is the premier conference that is dedicated to interdisciplinary research linking computer science, mathematics, statistics, biology, medicine, bioinformatics, and biomedical and health informatics. ACM-BCB focuses on the grand challenges for life science, bioscience and human health by showcasing cutting-edge research on new technologies, methods, and tools around the processing, integration, analysis, mining, retrieval, and interpretation of biological, medical and health data with the aim of solving problems in life science, biomedical discovery, public and population health, disease prevention, and healthcare delivery.

The 2021 ACM-BCB Conference welcomes original submissions that have not been published and are not presently under review. Accepted papers will be published in the 2021 ACM-BCB Conference Proceedings and appear in the ACM Digital Library (note that ACM copyright permissions are directly compatible with those of the NIH and are similar to open-access journal policies). A subset of selected papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of journals. In the past, we have published selected articles in special issues of the IEEE/ACM Transaction on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB), or in a special issue of the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI).

Submitted manuscripts should comply with the requirements delineated on the ACM Master Article Template website. ACM-BCB's technical program committee will review and assess all submissions on the basis of their originality, technical soundness, significance, presentation, and relevance to conference attendees. In order to submit their manuscripts, authors should use the 2021 ACM-BCB Conference webpage on EasyChair. All submissions will be peer-reviewed in a single-blind review process by program committee members. At the time of submission, the author list should be final. Any subsequent changes to the author list post-submission must be approved by the program chairs.

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
