The 15th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Technology (ICBBT 2023) will be held on 26-28 May 2023 in Xi’an, China.  Juan Manuel Corchado Rodríguez, director of the BISITE Research Group and president of the AIR Institute will participate as publicity chair of the ICBBT, where interesting data on bioinformatics and projects in this field, such as DeepNGS, a solution that automates the workflow of genetic analysis and can help in diagnostic procedures.

Each year, ICBBT gathers leading academics, innovators and industry experts in the field of Bioinformatics and Biomedical Technology at a shared forum. The main objective of the conference is to promote research and development activities in Bioinformatics and Biomedical Technology. It also promotes the exchange of scientific information among researchers, developers, engineers, students and professionals working in China and abroad.

In this regard, ICBBT invites you to participate with both oral and poster presentations of high quality. It also welcomes academics and industrial experts who do not wish to present and publish papers to register as listeners and attend all sessions. For the past six years, accepted and registered ICBBT papers have been published in ACM Conference Proceedings, which is indexed by Ei Compendex and Scopus. This time they will be published in the International Conference Proceedings, which will be indexed by Ei Compendex and Scopus, and reviewed by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI Web of Science). You can submit your papers until 25 December 2022, check the conference website for more information.
