The International Conference on Bioinformatics and Systems Biology, 2018 (BSB-2018) has been scheduled on 26th to 28th October 2018 to provide a leading forum for disseminating the latest research in bioinformatics and systems biology. It will bring together academic and industrial scientists involving in computer science, biology, medicine, mathematics and statistics research, to share the recent trends know-how in the area of computational systems biology.
Call for Papers/Posters
We solicit high-quality original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) on any aspect of bioinformatics and systems biology. New computational techniques and methods involving machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition, knowledge representation, databases, data modeling, stochastic modeling, string and graph algorithms, constraint optimization, data analysis, data visualization, parallel computation, data integration, modeling, and simulation and their application in biological science domain are especially encouraged.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original research papers in electronic format through Easy Chair. Unregistered authors should first create an account on Easy Chair to log on.
All submissions must be in English language only. Papers submitted should comply with the IEEE format, specifications guideline. The manuscript submitted to BSB-2018 should be prepared with general headings like Title, Name of authors, Institutional address, Email ID, Mobile Number, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Result and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgment, and References. Authors are requested to submit the full paper (Maximum 4 pages, double-column A4) using the IEEE conference template. The IEEE paper template can be downloaded from the IEEE website.
All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer-reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. Acceptance of papers (both oral presentation and poster presentation) will be communicated to authors by email. The shortlisted papers will be called for oral presentation whereas few may be invited for poster presentation.
One best presenter each from track oral presentation category will get cash award along with a certificate of appreciation.
Format of Poster Presentation
Your topic could be described on a printed poster which may include photographs, graphics and required text. The top panel of the poster should include the conference logo (right hand) and your university logo. The poster contains Abstract, Introduction, Material & Methods, Results & Discussion, Conclusion and References. For printed posters, the standard ‘A0 size’ i.e. 90cm wide x 120cm high is the minimum size. It is recommended that a printed poster should not be larger than the given size.
Prospective authors are invited to submit original research papers in electronic format through Easy Chair. Unregistered authors should first create an account on Easy Chair.
It is important that applicants describe in their abstract in maximum 250 words and it should also contain Title of the Research work, Authors name & affiliations and Maximum 5 Keywords.
Top 3 Posters will be Awarded!

Journal special issues
Organizers of BSB-2018 are working hard to include few highly reputed journals (SCI, ESCI, SI), to publish selected papers in respective special/regular journal issues. The specific journal to which each manuscript (accepted in BSB-2018) may be sent, will be decided as per the track of the accepted paper in consultation with reviewing committee members.
The Author (Corresponding) will be notified about the layout format and other internal requirements of the said specific journal to which the manuscript needed to be submitted, with sufficient extension of their work. The extended submission of the accepted manuscripts will be considered for publication in one of the following journals (either through special issue or regular issues)
However, the organizer of BSB-2018 is working closely with several other journal publication house for publication of accepted and extended BSB-2018 submissions.
