This conference will bring together top researchers, practitioners, academics, and students from around the globe to discuss the latest advances in the field of computational intelligence and other areas of artificial intelligence, as applied to real-world problems in biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, chemical informatics, bioengineering, and related fields. Computational intelligence approaches include artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary algorithms, hybrid algorithms, and other emerging techniques.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


Computational Intelligence in Computational Biology

- Computational epidemiology

- Surrogate modeling and representation

Regular papers

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 form and written in English. Detailed instructions and templates for preparing your manuscripts can be found on the IEEE website. Each paper will be peer-reviewed. Submission implies the willingness of at least one author to register and present the paper at the conference. Each registration covers a maximum of two papers. Extra papers submitted by one registered author beyond the maximum of two papers per registration will incur a charge of €150 per paper. Papers that are more than 8 pages in length will incur an extra length page charge of €100/page. Papers longer than 10 pages in length will not be accepted.


Short papers (will be included on the conference website but not in IEEExplore)

Short papers may present preliminary findings from work in progress, and industry perspectives on issues relevant to CIBCB 2023. Short papers are expected to discuss a clear and focused central idea, incorporate discussion of relevant research or context, and provide references, as necessary. Short papers must adhere to the IEEE conference template and have a length of no more than two (2) pages. Papers must be in PDF and written in English. Short papers will be desk reviewed by the CIBCB 2023 organizational committee. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper at the conference. Short papers will be presented either as a poster, or as part of a workshop or a competition session.



PDF versions of accepted papers will be distributed at the conference. At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register and present the paper at the conference. 

IMPORTANT: An accepted paper will be published in the proceedings on IEEE Xplore only if the final camera-ready version is accompanied by the payment of at least one full registration for one of the authors.

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a special issue of an international scientific journal.



IEEE CIBCB 2023 will run a number of Tutorials and Special Sessions.

Any topic of interest for the conference is eligible for a tutorial. Tutorials typically last from one to three hours.

Special sessions focus on a specific, possibly cutting-edge, topic of interest for IEEE CIBCB. Special session organizers will be responsible for call dissemination, the reviewing process, and organizing oral presentations. Typically, a special session will have at least 4 accepted papers and may have an invited speaker (to be negotiated).

Special Session proposals must include the session’s title and scope, a short CV of sessions chairs, and a preliminary list of at least 4 (possibly more) potential authors

due by 13 January 2023
