Accepted papers will be published in the ACM-BCB conference proceedings and appear in the ACM Digital Library (note that ACM copyright permissions are directly compatible with NIH and similar open-access policies, see authors.acm.org/main.html for more information). A subset of selected papers will be invited for being published in a special issue of the IEEE/ACM Transaction on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB), or a special issue of the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI).
In addition, there is a separate Highlights track for authors who wish to present platform talks for papers that have recently appeared in refereed journals; see the conference website (acm-bcb.org) for more information.

The submission link will be made available on the conference webpage soon (https://acm-bcb.org/). At the time of submission, the author list should be final. Any subsequent changes to the author list post-submission needs to be done with the approval of the program chairs.
