    Paper Submission and Publication


    Prospective authors are invited to submit unpublished work to ICIBM 2013. All papers and abstracts will be submitted through EasyChair Conference System. Detailed information is available through: http://www.zhaobioinfo.org/icibm2013/submission.html.

    By submitting your paper to ICIBM'13, you implicitly state that the paper is based on your own original research and that it was not and will not be submitted elsewhere. All submitted papers should be written in English. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the work associated with the paper submitted.

    All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The accepted papers of registered authors will be published in special issues of several journals, including BMC Systems Biology, BMC Genomics, and International Journal of Computational Biology and Drug Design (IJCBDD). Authors need to prepare manuscripts in the format of the corresponding journal that they prefer. Although we try our best to accommodate authors’ preferences, the competition is high and there is no guarantee that all accepted papers will be published in authors’ preferred journals. We will contact individual authors in that case. The authors agree to pay the publication fees to the journals (there is no publication fee for the papers published in IJCBDD).


    Abstract Submission


    Participants who do not submit papers are encouraged to submit abstract through the website above (see future updates online)


    Travel Awards


    Up to 20 travel awards are available to students/postdocs; awards will be granted through an NSF grant (pending). Detailed information is available at here.
