The 11th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM BCB) is the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. ACM-BCB 2020 is the conference's eleventh year, building upon the success of the first ten meetings in Boston, Niagara Falls, Chicago, Orlando, Washington DC, Newport Beach, Atlanta, Seattle, Washington DC, and Niagara Falls. ACM-BCB 2020 will be held as a Virtual Conference due to COVID-19.

The conference is a premier dissemination forum for interdisciplinary research linking computer science, mathematics, statistics, biology, bioinformatics, biomedical informatics, and health informatics. The past few decades have seen tremendous growth in the scale and complexity of biological and medical data including recent mainstream recognition of big data challenges. This conference serves to showcase leading-edge research on new technologies and techniques around gathering, processing, analyzing, and modeling of data and information for a variety of scientific, clinical, and healthcare applications, from bench to bedside.
