2020 IEEE International Conference on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.

October 27-29, 2020 – Viña del Mar, Chile. 2020


The IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (IEEE CIBCB) has become a major technical event in the field of Computational Intelligence (CI) and its application to problems in bioinformatics, computational biology, and biomedical engineering. IEEE CIBCB 2020 provides a global forum for academic and industrial scientists from computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics, statistics, and engineering, to discuss and present their latest research findings from theory to applications.

IEEE CIBCB will take place in Viña del Mar, Chile. Viña del Mar is a coastal city northwest of Santiago, it is one of Chile’s top attractions, known for its gardens, beaches and high-rise buildings. 2020 will be the first time that IEEE CIBCB is held in South America. We believe that Chile and Viña del Mar is the right location to expand the popularity of this exciting research field and the CIBCB conference itself in this part of the world.

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of no more than eight (8) pages in IEEE conference format, including results, figures and references. Papers must be in PDF and written in English. Detailed instructions and templates for preparing your manuscripts can be found here.

At maximum, two additional pages are permitted with over-length page charge of US$100/page, to be paid during author registration.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper at the conference.

All papers and late-breaking abstracts should be submitted via the EasyChair online submission system.

IEEE Member Rates: IEEE members can register at reduced rates. IEEE members are those holding current membership in the IEEE. Non-IEEE members are those without current membership in this organization.

Student Rates: Proof of current student status must be provided at time of registration. 

All quantities are in US dollars.  

The above fees include admission to all tutorials and technical sessions, along with coffee breaks, a reception and a banquet. One copy of the proceedings (in electronic form) is also included. Fees include all applicable taxes.

Each accepted paper must be accompanied by a full (non-student) registration to be included in the proceedings. Each full registration covers a maximum of two papers (or one paper and one late-breaking abstract).
