The main goal of 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, and medical informatics with a particular focus on Neural Networks, Machine Learning, Fuzzy Logic, and Evolutionary Computation methods.

CIBB 2012 is jointly organized by:
 *INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Bioinformatics
 *INNS International Neural Network Society SIG Biopattern
 *IEEE-CIS-BBCT Task force on Neural Networks
 *TMHRI The Methodist Hospital Research Institute
 *Weill Cornell Medical College
 *DISI Dept. Computer and Information Sciences - Univ. Genova (Italy)
 *SHRO Sbarro Health Research Organization

with the sponsorship of:



*GNCS Gruppo Nazionale Calcolo Scientifico (Italy)
 *SIREN Italian Neural Networks Society
 *RNBIO The Italian Network for Oncology Bioinformatics
 *DMI Dipartimento di Matematica e Informatica - Univ. Salerno (Italy)

Technical areas addressed by CIBB 2012 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 functional classification of genes
 * Methods for 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 modeling and simulation of biological systems
 * Heterogeneous data integration and data fusion for diagnostics
 * Biomolecular databases and data mining
 * Algorithms for pharmacogenetics
 * Biomedical text mining and imaging
 * 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 or poster sessions.

Accepted papers will be published on a flash drive with a specific ISBN number for the conference proceedings. A selection of papers presented at CIBB 2012 will appear in a post-conference monograph published by an international publisher.  Moreover, we are planning to publish the best papers in an extended form in a special issue of an international scientific journal.
