The International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (CIBB) is a preeminent yearly conference focused on machine learning and computational intelligence applied to bioinformatics and biostatistics.


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 problems.

During their first editions, the CIBB meetings were organized and attended mainly by Italian researchers at various academic locations throughout Italy. As international audience and importance of the conference grew up, conference editions moved outside Italy. The 2012 CIBB conference was held in Houston, Texas, in the United States; the 2013 CIBB meeting took place in Nice, in the Cote 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.[1][2]

Last CIBB conference (the 13th edition) was organized at University of Stirling, in Scotland (United Kingdom) in the first days September 2016,[3] while next CIBB conference will be held at University of Cagliari, in Sardinia (Italy) in September 2017.[4]

The CIBB scientific meetings 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, which usually includes some special sessions about the application of computational intelligence to specific aspects of biology (for example, the "Special session on computational biostatistics for data integration in systems biomedicine" at CIBB 2014).

In the 2011 conference edition in Gargnano sul Garda, the scientific committee assigned a young researcher best paper award.[5]

The proceedings for CIBB meetings 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.
