EvoBIO 2010
8th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics

The European Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary conference that brings together researchers working in Bioinformatics that apply advanced techniques coming from Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning, and Data Mining to address important problems in molecular biology, proteomics, genomics and genetics. The primary focus of the conference is to present the latest advances of these approaches for Bioinformatics and to provide a forum for the discussion of new research directions.

EvoBIO 2010 will be the 8th annual European Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics. The conference will be held in conjunction with the EuroGP (13th European Conference on Genetic Programming), EvoCOP 2010 (10th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimisation) and EvoApplications 2010, the specialist conference on a range of evolutionary computation topics and applications.

Areas of Interests and Contributions

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • biomarker discovery
  • cell simulation and modelling
  • ecological modelling
  • fluxomics
  • gene networks
  • high-throughput biotechnology
  • metabolomics
  • microarray analysis
  • phylogeny
  • protein interaction
  • proteomics
  • sequence analysis and alignment
  • biological networks analysis
  • systems biology
Publication Details

We are interested in papers in three major areas:

  1. Full research articles (maximum 12 pages) describing new methodologies, approaches, and/or applications (oral or poster presentation).
  2. System Demonstrations (maximum 6 pages) outlining the nature of the system and describe why the demonstration is likely to be of interest for the conference. Demonstrations of interest include systems under development or in active use in research or practice domains. Selected demo submissions may be asked to give an oral presentation in the conference sessions.
  3. Short reports (maximum 6 pages) describing new methodologies, approaches, and/or applications (poster presentation).

Each accepted paper will be presented orally or as a poster at the conference and will be printed in the proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series.

The accepted papers of the previous editions of EvoBIO were published in the Springer Verlag LNCS 2611, 3005, 3449, 3907, 4447, 4973, 5483 respectively.

Accepted papers can be found here.

The authors of papers which receive the best reviews will be nominated for the Best paper Award.

Papers nominated for the best paper award will also be invited to expand their publication for a special issue of BioData Mining.

Please use LNCS format
