The International Conference on Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (CIBB) is a preeminent yearly scientific conference focused on machine learning and computational intelligence applied to bioinformatics and biostatistics.
Organization and history
The CIBB conferences are typically organized by members of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE CIS) and International Neural Network Society (INNS), among others. Their main themes are machine learning, data mining and computational intelligence algorithms applied to biological and biostatistical problems.
The CIBB conference was originally started by the Italian professors Francesco Masulli (University of Genoa), Antonina Starita (University of Pisa), and Roberto Tagliaferri (University of Salerno) as a special session within other international conferences held in Italy: the 14th Italian Workshop on neural networks (WIRN 2004), the 6th International Workshop on Fuzzy Logic and Applications (WILF 2005), the 7th International Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent Technologies in Nuclear Science Conference on Applied Artificial Intelligence (FLINS 2006), and the 7th International Workshop on Fuzzy Logic and Applications (WILF 2007). Because of the broad participation of researchers to the CIBB special session at WILF 2007, which included 26 papers, the CIBB steering committee decided to turn CIBB into an autonomous conference starting with the 2008 edition in Vietri sul Mare (Italy).
During their first editions, the CIBB conferences were organized and attended mainly by Italian researchers at various academic locations throughout Italy (Genoa 2009, Palermo 2010, Gargnano 2011). As international audience and importance of the conference grew up, following conference editions moved outside Italy. The 2012 CIBB conference was held in Houston, Texas, in the United States, for the first time outside Europe. The 2013 CIBB meeting took place in Nice, in the Côte d'Azur of Southern France; and the 2014 edition occurred at the University of Cambridge, in Great Britain. After these three editions, the 12th CIBB conference came back to Southern Italy and was organized in Naples in September 2015.
The 13th CIBB conference was organized at University of Stirling, in Scotland (United Kingdom) in the first days September 2016, while the following CIBB conference was held at University of Cagliari, in Sardinia (Italy) in September 2017.
The CIBB scientific conferences usually attract scientists from all over the world.
The conference is a single track meeting that includes invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. It usually lasts three days in September. The conference traditionally includes some special sessions about the application of computational intelligence to specific aspects of biology (for example, the "Special session on machine learning in health informatics and biological systems" at CIBB 2018), and occasionally some tutorials.
The proceedings for CIBB conferences are usually published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, whereas a selection of the best papers undergo extended publication in international peer-reviewed journals such as BMC Bioinformatics.
