Call for Papers

CMSB 2014 solicits original research articles on the analysis of biological systems, networks, and data. The conference brings together computer scientists, biologists, mathematicians, engineers, and physicists interested in a system-level understanding of biological processes.

Papers should be submitted to one of the following categories:

  • formalisms for modelling biological processes,
  • models and their biological applications,
  • frameworks for model verification, validation, and analysis of biological systems,
  • high-performance computational systems biology and parallel implementations,
  • model inference from experimental data,
  • model integration from biological databases,
  • multi-scale modelling and analysis methods,
  • computational approaches for synthetic biology.

Case studies in systems and synthetic biology are especially encouraged.

Submitted papers should describe original work that has not been previously published and is not under review for publication elsewhere. Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the LNCS format and be submitted electronically as PDF files via EasyChair. The limit for submissions is 12 pages. Appendices will not not be counted in the page limit.

There will be a cash prize of $500 USD for the Best Student Paper. The criteria for a Student paper are that the leading (corresponding) author should be registered in a Masters or PhD program, the contributions and percentages of effort by all authors should be clearly stated in an appendix, and the paper should be submitted with the keyword 'student paper' at Easychair. The cash prize is donated by TCSIM - the IEEE Technical Committee on Simulation.

Proceedings will be published in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science / Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics.

Paper submission deadline: 4th July, 2014.

After the conference, a selection of papers will be invited to be extended and submitted to a special issue of a journal.
