APBC - Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Conference
An annual conference held since 2003
Aims of APBC Conference
The Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Conference series is an annual forum for exploring research, development and novel applications of Bioinformatics.
The importance of bioinformatics is
growing rapidly and the volume of biological data is increasing exponentially.
These data are characterized by variety and heterogeneity: they are related to
different organic structures, environments, and spatial scales, and derive
from multiple sources. The aim of this conference is to provide an
international forum for researchers, professionals, and industrial
practitioners to share their knowledge of how to surf this tidal wave of
Database management, artificial
intelligence, data mining, and knowledge representation can provide key
solutions to the challenges presented by biological data. These approaches
require powerful and sophisticated computational tools to provide efficient
solutions to very complex problems. Exciting opportunities are
emerging for integrating molecular biology components of bioinformatics with
computational, physiological, morphological, taxonomic, and ecological
components. Addressing this challenge will facilitate the way life science
researches access, retrieve, analyze and visualize data and relationships in a
collaborative work environment.
We invite submissions that address
conceptual and practical issues of bioinformatics.

may have its own theme and emphasis on different aspects of Bioinformatics.
Conference Formats and Organization
The conference is typically held over 3 days.
The conference consists of a steering committee, an international technical program committee and a local organizing committee. Each submitted paper is reviewed by at least three reviewers.
