Call for Highlights Track Submissions

The 15th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. ACM-BCB 2024 will be held for the first time outside of USA in Shenzhen China from Nov 22nd to 25th 2024, after past successes in many USA locations. ACM-BCB 2024 aims to promote AI for Bio-medicine (AI4Bio), including cutting-edge AI advances in computational biology, bioinformatics, and health informatics, at the intersection of computer science, artificial intelligence, statistics, biology, and medicine.
