The 12th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. The 2021 ACM- BCB conference is the premier conference that is dedicated to interdisciplinary research linking computer science, mathematics, statistics, biology, medicine, bioinformatics, and biomedical and health informatics. ACM-BCB focuses on the grand challenges for life science, bioscience and human health by showcasing cutting-edge research on new technologies, methods, and tools around the processing, integration, analysis, mining, retrieval, and interpretation of biological, medical and health data with the aim of solving problems in life science, biomedical discovery, public and population health, disease prevention, and healthcare delivery. This conference and its posters, workshops, and tutorials collectively serve to showcase leading edge research focused on bioinformatics, computational biology, and health informatics.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference and all its associated events will be held virtually this year.
We especially welcome proposals for tutorials that:
The tutorials will be held virtually on August 1, 2021. We envision tutorials to be 1 to 4 units, where each unit is 50 minutes. We encourage tutorials with multiple units to have more than one presenter, preferably from different institutions, bringing different perspectives.
Tutorial proposals should not exceed 3 pages (excluding speaker biographies) and should include:
Each proposal will be evaluated based on the significance of the proposed tutorial topic, overall quality of the proposal, the qualifications and experience of the presenters, the tutorial's fit to the conference theme, suitability for virtual presentation, and the number of available tutorial slots.
Submission procedure: Each tutorial proposal can be up to 3 pages (11pt font Times New Roman, single line spacing, 1” page margins on all sides, PDF format). Proposers are requested to include all the details listed above in their proposal.
