Current high throughput genomics technologies generate large quantities of high dimensional data. Biological data are scattered across thousands of biological databases and hundreds of scientific journals. The challenge for Integrative Bioinformatics in the e-Science age is to capture, model, integrate and analyse these data in order to provide systematic insights into complex biological systems.

This tenth meeting on Integrative Bioinformatics will be of interest to Bioinformaticians, Computer Scientists, Systems Biologists, Synthetic Biologists and others working or interested in the developing area of integrative bioinformatics. The meeting will provide an excellent environment and a range of opportunities to present and discuss methods, theoretical approaches, and their practical applications.

Publication in the Journal of Integrative Bioinformatics

Accepted papers will appear in a special issue of the Journal of Integrative Bioinformatics (JIB) and will be available as printed conference proceedings. JIB is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in all aspects of integrative bioinformatics. JIB (ISSN 1613-4516) is indexed/tracked/covered by PubMed (since 2008), DBLP Computer Science Bibliography and Google Scholar.
