Evostar 2015

The Leading European Event on Bio-Inspired Computation.

Copenhagen, Denmark, 8-10 April 2015

The European Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining in Computational Biology

Join us in Copenhagen for EvoBIO, a multidisciplinary conference that brings together researchers working in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology that apply advanced techniques coming from Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning, and Data Mining to address important problems in biology, from the molecular and genomic dimension, to the individual and population level. EvoBIO engages researchers who are developing or applying advanced artificial intelligence or machine learning algorithms to cutting edge problems in bioinformatics and computational biology. Each accepted paper will be presented orally or as a poster at the conference and will be printed in the proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series. Possible topics of interest include:
  • Interpretating genomic or metagenomic data
  • Discovering regulatory or expression pathways
  • Rational drug design and personalized medicine
  • Modeling ecosystems or population dynamics
  • Discovering genome-disease associations
  • Assembling next generation sequence data
EvoBIO and other EvoSTAR conference have significant thematic overlap; often the work of one conference or application is of interest to attendees of another. Selected EvoBIO papers may be considered for presentation in a joint session with other EvoSTAR conferences (EuroGP, EvoCOP, and EvoMUSART). For more information, visit our web page at http://www.evostar.org, or follow us on Twitter @EVOBIO2015, join our evobio2015 group on LinkedIn and our EvoBIO group on Facebook, or email to evobio.conference(at)gmail.com.


Authors of the best paper will receive a waiver for the publication on an extended version in the BioData Mining Journal (http://www.biodatamining.org/)
