Call For Papers
The 11th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. ACM-BCB 2020 will be held in Atlanta, GA on August 30-September 2, 2020. 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.

Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 10 pages in ACM "sigconf" template on 8.5 x 11 inch paper ( ACM-BCB's technical program committee will review all submissions on the basis of their originality, technical soundness, significance, presentation, and relevance to the conference attendees. The submission link will be made available on the conference webpage soon ( At the time of submission, the author list should be final. Any subsequent changes to the author list post-submission needs to be done with the approval of 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
    Metagenomics and Algorithms for Microbiomes
