CSBio2010 Banner

To commemorate the 15th anniversary of the School of Information Technology (SIT) and the 50th anniversary of the King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), SIT is launching the 1st International Conference on Computational Systems-Biology and Bioinformatics (CSBio 2010). CSBio 2010 is a follow up from the successful Special Session on Computational Advances in Bioinformatics (CAB 2009) in the 16th International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP 2009).

CSBio will provide an annual forum for international researchers to exchange the latest ideas

on advances in the interdisciplinary fields of computational systems biology and bioinformatics. CSBio is proposed to be hosted alternately by KMUTT and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore.



Aims and Scope

With the advent of technologies like DNA sequencing and DNA microarray, an enormous amount of information has been generated that can only be efficiently analyzed with computers. As the information becomes ever larger and more complex, more computational tools are needed to sort through the data. These include:

   Development of computational methodologies to perform systematic studies of complex interactions in biological systems to enable discovery of new emergent properties that may arise from the integrated systemic view.
   Development of new algorithms and statistics to assess biological information, such as relationships among members of very large data sets.
   Development and implementation of tools that enable efficient access and management of different types of information, such as various databases, integrated mapping information.
   Visualization of various types of biological data to aid in analysis and interpretation of nucleotide and amino acid sequences, protein domains, and protein structures.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   Modeling and simulation of biological processes, pathways, networks, and so on
   Mathematical and quantitative models of cellular and multicellular systems
   Synthetic biological systems
   Molecular evolution and phylogeny
   Functional genomics
   Metabolomics and other omics
   DNA, RNA and protein sequence analysis
   Structural bioinformatics
   Gene expression analysis
   Biomarker discovery
   Disease classification
   Parallel and Grid computing
   Image and signal analysis
   Qualitative biological model
   Biological network reconstruction and analysis
   Biological databases
   Bio-data visualization
   Medical and biomedical informatics
   Drug discovery and validation
   Discrete/stochastic modeling and language frameworks

Paper Submission

The CSBio 2010 online submission system is opened at EasyChair here (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=csbio2010).

Prospective authors are invited to submit original, high quality manuscripts of up to twelve (12) A4-pages electronically. The submission must conform to the Springer LNCS format. All accepted papers will be published in proceedings of CSBio 2010, preferably as a Springer LNBI volume. Extended version of selected papers will be invited for publication in special issues of international journals after the conference. All submissions will be checked by VeriGuide/VeriConf for originality.


Journal versions of selected papers from the conference proceedings will be invited to the following journals:

Algorithms for Molecular Biology (BioMed Central)
