Conference Location
Call For Papers
The RECOMB conference series was founded in 1997 to provide a scientific forum for advances in computational biology and applications in molecular biology and medicine. The conference aims at bridging the computational, mathematical, statistical, and biological sciences, and bringing together researchers, professionals, students and industrial practitioners from all over the world for interaction and exchange of new developments in all areas of bioinformatics and computational biology. The conference will feature keynote talks by leading scientists, presentations of peer- reviewed high-quality research papers, presentations of exciting research developments that were published within the past year and poster sessions on latest research progress.

Papers reporting on original research (both theoretical and experimental) with an algorithmic focus in all areas of computational molecular biology are sought. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Molecular sequence analysis
Sequencing and genotyping technologies
Regulation and epigenomics
Transcriptomics, including single-cell
Population and statistical genetics
Evolutionary, compressive and comparative genomics
Structure and function of non-coding RNAs
Computational proteomics and proteogenomics
Protein structure and function
Biological networks
Computational systems biology
Privacy of biomedical data

Submissions should represent original, previously unpublished work. The Program Committee will rigorously review submitted extended abstracts (approximately 10 pages).  Selected papers will be accepted for presentation at the conference. Accepted abstracts will be published as a proceedings volume in the Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series from Springer-Verlag, which will be available at the conference.  Authors who prefer not to publish their papers in the LNBI proceedings, must submit a final two-page extended abstract for inclusion in the Springer LNBI proceedings in lieu of the full paper and must submit the full paper to the preprint server or by the deadline of the camera ready version to ensure that the presented paper is accessible.  RECOMB is partnering with Cell Systems and the Journal of Computational Biology. Authors of selected accepted papers will be invited, but not required, to submit an edited journal version for a special issue of Cell Systems (as detailed below).  Authors can alternatively choose to submit extended versions of accepted proceedings papers to the Journal of Computational Biology or to pursue the Parallel Submission option, detailed below, to submit their work to an alternative journal of their choosing in parallel with RECOMB submission.


All papers accepted for oral presentations at RECOMB that are of salient biological interest will be considered for the RECOMB special issue of Cell Systems.  Selected authors will be invited to submit to Cell Systems and, if papers are accepted there, they will be included in the RECOMB special issue. Editors at Cell Systems will actively collaborate with RECOMB authors during a streamlined review process involving the RECOMB reviewers and up to 2 additional biological reviewers. Authors will be notified as to whether their paper is accepted for oral presentation at RECOMB and simultaneously whether they will be invited to submit to Cell Systems for consideration in the RECOMB special issue by December 18, 2020.


If a paper is submitted for oral presentation at RECOMB, the authors can simultaneously submit their full paper to the journal of their choice and elect to have a two-page short paper published in the LNBI proceedings in lieu of a full proceedings paper.  Note that full papers accepted to RECOMB must be submitted to a preprint server by the camera-ready deadline as described above.  Papers accepted for oral presentation that have been accepted to a journal other than Cell Systems or Journal of Computational Biology at the time of the meeting may be moved to the Highlights track at the discretion of the PC Chair.
