Bioinformatics, computational biology, and bioengineering present a number of complex problems with large search spaces. Recent applications of Computational Intelligence (CI) in this area suggest that they are well-suited to this area of research. This special session will highlight applications of CI to a broad range of topics. Particular interest will be directed towards novel applications of CI approaches to problems in these areas. The scope of this special session includes evolutionary computation, neural computation, fuzzy systems, artificial immune systems, swarm intelligence, ant-colony optimization, simulated annealing, and other CI methods or hybridizations between CI approaches. Applications of these CI methods to bioinformatics, computational biology, and bioengineering problems are the main focus of this hybrid special session. There is a clear interest in both the Computational Intelligence community and Biology communities for this special session. This hybrid special session is sponsored by the IEEE CIS BBTC (Computational Intelligence Society - Bioinformatics and Bioengineering Technical Committee).
Particular interest will be directed towards novel applications of computational intelligence to problems in these areas.
The special session on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics is soliciting high quality papers of original research and application papers that have not been published elsewhere and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard format and page limit of regular papers specified in the WCCI 2016 website. All papers will be rigorously reviewed by at least two reviewers. Accepted papers will be treated in the same way as regular papers and published in the WCCI 2016 conference proceedings.
