Scope & List of Topics:

Prologue:
Computational Biology involves the development and application of
data-analytical and theoretical methods, mathematical modeling and
computational simulation techniques to the study of biological,
behavioral, and social systems. An important core of Computational Biology
includes Bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that
develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

– Bioinformatics and Big Data
– Big Data in Genomics and Cancer Research
– High-performance Computing and Applications in Biology
– Microarrays
– Bioinformatics and Cloud Resources
– Molecular Dynamics and Simulation; Molecular Interactions
– Molecular Sequence Classification, Alignment and Assembly
– Molecular Sequence and Structure Databases
– Computational Systems Biology
– Gene Regulation
– Gene Pattern Discovery and Identification
– Gene Expression Analysis; Gene Expression Databases
– Genetic Network Modeling and Inference
– Comparative Genomics
– Evolution of Regulatory Genomic Sequences
– RNA and DNA Structure and Sequencing
– Biomedical Engineering
– Combinatorics and Bioinformatics
– Biological Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
– Bio-ontologies + Semantics
– Biological Data Integration and Visualization
– Image Processing in Medicine and Biological Sciences
– Pattern Classification and Recognition
– Sequence Analysis and Alignment
– Informatics and Statistics in Biopharmaceutical Research
– Software Tools and Methods for Computational Biology and
Bioinformatics
– Protein Modeling
– Proteomics; Protein Folding and Fold Recognition
– Metabolic Modeling and Pathways
– Evolution and Phylogenetics
– Macromolecular Structure Prediction
– Medical Informatics
– Epidemic Models
– Structural and Functional Genomics
– Amino Acid Sequencing
– Stochastic Modeling
– Cheminformatics
– Computational Drug Discovery and Experimental Medicine
– Cancer Informatics
– Experimental Studies
– Application of Computational Intelligence in Drug Design
– Computer-based Medical Systems (automation in medicine, …)

Publisher:

You are invited to submit a paper for consideration.
All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the 2017
International Conference on Computational Science and Computational
Intelligence (CSCI: http://americancse.org/events/csci2017 ):
CPS: https://www.computer.org/web/cs-cps/

All past CSCI proceedings have been indexed into IEEE Xplore Digital
Library and can be accessed via ieeexplore.ieee.org . For the specific
IEEE Xplore links to CSCI proceedings, refer to:
http://americancse.org/events/csci2017/publication

Instructions for Submission of Papers for Evaluation:

All accepted papers will be published by IEEE CPS:
https://www.computer.org/web/cs-cps/
in the proceedings of The 2017 International Conference on
Computational Science and Computational Intelligence (CSCI’17).

All past CSCI proceedings have been indexed into IEEE Xplore Digital
Library and can be accessed via ieeexplore.ieee.org . For the specific
IEEE Xplore links to CSCI proceedings, refer to:
http://americancse.org/events/csci2017/publication

Papers should be typeset by using the general typesetting
instructions available at:
http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html
(i.e., use of regular Times New Roman, font size of 10, single line
spacing, 2-column format). Authors of accepted papers will later
receive more specific typesetting instructions. All submissions must
be original (papers must not have been previously published or
currently being considered by others for publication).

Submissions must be in either MS doc or pdf formats (6 pages for
Regular Research Papers; 4 pages for Short Papers; 2 pages for
Poster Papers – the number of pages include all figures, tables, and
references). The first page should include:

– Title of the paper.
– Name, affiliation, city, country, and email address of each author
(identify the name of the Contact Author).
– Abstract (about 100 words).
– A maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the work
described in the paper (see the list of topics).
– Write the type of the submission as “Full/Regular Research Papers”,
“Short Papers”, or “Poster Papers”.
– Write “CSCI-ISCB”

The actual paper can start from the first page (space permitting).
Submissions are to be uploaded to the submission/evaluation web site
portal at: http://american-cse.org/

Type of Submissions/Papers:

– Full/Regular Research Papers (maximum of 6 pages):
Regular Research Papers should provide detail original research
contributions. They must report new research results that represent
a contribution to the field; sufficient details and support for
the results and conclusions should also be provided. The work
presented in regular papers are expected to be at a stage of
maturity that with some additional work can be published as journal
papers.

– Short Papers (maximum of 4 pages):
Short papers report on ongoing research projects. They should provide
overall research methodologies with some results. The work presented
in short papers are expected to be at a stage of maturity that with
some additional work can be published as regular papers.

– Poster Papers (maximum of 2 pages):
Poster papers report on ongoing research projects that are still in
their infancy (i.e., at very early stages). Such papers tend to
provide research methodologies without yet concrete results.

Review Process:

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by 2 to 4 peers (except for papers that
are philosophical in nature – such papers would be considered for panel
discussions.) Confidentiality of submitted material will be maintained.
Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, impact, significance,
quality of research, quality of writing, and contribution to conference
program and diversity. Papers whose authors include one or more members
of the program committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded
review process. Authors whose papers are not selected for publication
can submit a rebuttal letter; rebuttals will be evaluated by 4 members
of the Program Committee. 161115

Deadlines (EXTENDED) – Dates:

October 22, 2017:     Submission of Papers (11:59pm US Eastern Time Zone).
Paper submission portal (for evaluation):
https://american-cse.org/
Note that authors who have submitted papers in
response to the earlier “Call For Papers” will receive
decisions and status reports by around October 19.
November 02, 2017:    Notification of acceptance (+/- 2 days)
November 12, 2017:    Final papers & Registrations due
