Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 9th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (ICBCB 2021) will be held in Taiyuan, China, from 25 to 27 May 2021, at the World Trade Hotel Taiyuan. For more information about the conference, please visit the conference website (

Selected papers presented at the conference and included in the conference proceedings are invited to be submitted as extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Computation. The authors of the selected papers will be invited by the Conference Chairs, in due time after the conference, to submit their papers by 31 August 2021. The conference paper should be cited and noted on the first page of the paper, and authors are asked to disclose that it is a conference paper in their cover letter and include a statement on what has been changed from the original conference paper. Each submission to this journal issue should contain at least 50% new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases. All submitted papers will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in an open access format in Computation and collected on the Special Issue website. The papers accepted for publication will be charged with a preferential, discounted Article Processing Charge (APC) of 700 CHF, instead of the 1000 CHF full APC for this journal.

Please prepare and format your paper according to the Instructions for Authors using the LaTeX or Microsoft Word template file of the journal (both are available from the Instructions for Authors page). Manuscripts should be submitted online via the editorial system.

Prof. Dr. Ming Chen
Guest Editor
