COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE METHODS FOR BIOINFORMATICS AND BIOSTATISTICS                                                                                                                                    
           Gargnano del Garda, 30 June - 2 July 2011

The main goal of the CIBB meetings is to provide a forum open to  researchers 
from different disciplines to present and discuss problems  concerning 
computational techniques in bioinformatics, systems biology,  medical 
informatics and biostatistics with a particular focus on Neural  Networks, 
Computational Learning, Fuzzy Logic, and Evolutionary Computation, methods and 
their relationships with Statistical Pattern Recognition, Non-Parametric 
Inference and Computational Statistics.

CIBB 2011 is jointly organized by:
INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bioinformatics
INNS International Neural Network Society  SIG Biopattern BBCT
IEEE-CIS - Task force on Neural Networks

Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2010 include, but are not limited to:
Sequence analysis, promoter analysis and identification of transcription  
factor binding sites; 
Gene expression data analysis; 
Methods for the  integration of clinical and genetic data;
Algorithms for alternative  splicing analysis;
Methods for the functional classification of genes; 
Methods for the unsupervised analysis, validation and visualization of 
structures discovered in bio-molecular data; 
Prediction of secondary and tertiary protein structures;
Mass spectrometry data analysis in proteomics; 
Methods for comparative genomics; 
Algorithms for molecular evolution and phylogenetic analysis; 
Mathematical modelling and simulation of biological systems; 
Heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics; 
Bio-molecular databases and data mining; 
Algorithms for pharmacogenetics; 
Bio-medical text mining and imaging; 
Modeling and evaluation methods for diagnosis and prognosis; 
Software tools for bioinformatics.

The scientific program will include, besides some plenary talks, contributed 
papers that will be presented in plenary oral and poster sessions. Accepted 
papers will be published in the compact disk of conference proceedings. A 
selection of papers presented at CIBB 2011 will be  will be published in 
extend form in a post-conference  volume in the series Lecture Notes in 
Bioinformatics   (LNCS/LNBI) of  Springer (

Moreover, we are planning to publish the best papers in extended form in a 
special issue of an international scientific journal.
