With the advancement in next-generation molecular technology in generating the high-throughput “omics” data, life science has come to the era of “big data”. To extract biological knowledge from the data and translate it into benefits for society (e.g. better medicine and healthcare), novel and advanced computational tools are needed for data analysis. The current trends are to leverage AI and application of cognitive computing that combines domain knowledge with machine learning.

Call for Papers

The call for paper targets contribution in the field of computational approaches designed to face the challenges aroused by biological systems. It aims at giving an overview of the cutting-edge methods and tools to address biological systems. A Special Session on COVID-19 Health, Analytics, and Technologies (CHAT-2020) will provide an opportunity for global research linkages and experience sharing.

CSBio 2020 would like to invite researchers and industrial counterparts to meet at this event to exchange ideas and stimulate research collaborations.
