Call for Highlights

The 9th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. ACM-BCB 2018 is the conference's ninth year, building upon the success of the first eight meetings in Niagara Falls, Chicago, Orlando, Washington DC, Newport Beach, Atlanta, Seattle and Boston.
