UPDATE (as of April 1, 2020):
We have been closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19 and its impact on various events. In the interest of ensuring health and safety for all attendees, and in anticipation of any continued travel restrictions extending later into the year and the uncertainties that may create, we have decided to move the ACM-BCB 2020 into a completely “virtual” mode. The precise format and platform details are being worked out and we will post those details as and when they become available. The conference and associated events will still happen around the designated dates albeit in a virtual mode. All calls (for papers, workshops, tutorials, highlights, posters) are on and will proceed as per original plan. Please refer to those individual links on this webpage for more details. We thank you for your interest in ACM-BCB.

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.
