Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Second CCF Bioinformatics Conference (CBC2017), organized by the China Computer Federation, will be held in Changsha, China, 13–15 October, 2017. The conference is supported and sponsored by Central South University, WeGene Company (Shenzhen), Sugon Information Industry Co., Beijing Zhongkejingyun Co., and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).

Bioinformatics have become intensive research topics in the past decade and have attracted many leading scientists working in Biology, Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science. Optimization, statistics, algorithms, and many other informatic methods are widely used in the field.

Following the successful CBC conference series from 2016, the purpose of CBC 2017 is to extend the international forum for scientists, researchers, educators, and practitioners to exchange ideas and approaches, to present research findings and state-of-the-art solutions in this interdisciplinary field, including theoretical methodology developments and their applications in biosciences and research on various aspects of bioinformatics. Excellent speakers in China will present their results. For all details, please see http://bioinformatics.csu.edu.cn/resources/CBC2017/, where a full list of presenters is available.
