Call for Papers


The RECOMB conference series was founded in 1997 to provide a scientific forum for communicating advances in computational biology and applications in molecular biology and medicine. The conference aims at bridging the computational, mathematical, statistical, and biological sciences, and bringing together researchers, professionals, students and industrial practitioners from all over the world for interaction and exchange of new developments in all areas of bioinformatics and computational biology. The conference will feature keynote talks by leading scientists, presentations of peer-reviewed high-quality research papers, presentations of exciting research developments that were published within the past year and poster sessions on latest research progress.


Papers reporting on original research (both theoretical and experimental) in all areas of computational molecular biology are suitable for submission. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Molecular sequence analysis
  • Sequencing and genotyping technologies
  • Gene regulation and epigenomics
  • Transcriptomics, including single-cell
  • Metagenomics
  • Population and statistical genetics
  • Evolution and comparative genomics
  • Structure and function of non-coding RNAs
  • Computational proteomics and proteogenomics
  • Computational structural biology
  • Computational metabolomics
  • Protein structure and function
  • Biological networks
  • Computational systems biology
  • Privacy of biomedical data
  • Bioimaging

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should represent original, previously unpublished work. The Program Committee will rigorously review submitted papers. Selected papers will be accepted for presentation at the conference. Accepted abstracts will be published as a proceedings volume in the Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series from Springer-Verlag, which will be available at the conference. Authors who prefer not to publish their papers in the LNBI proceedings, must submit a final extended abstract for inclusion in the Springer LNBI proceedings in lieu of the full paper and must submit the full paper to the preprint servers or by the deadline of the camera-ready version to ensure that the presented paper is accessible. Note that there is no template requirement at the submission stage, but we encourage the authors to use the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science template available here.

Page limits:

Papers are restricted to 10 Letter pages, including all figures/tables and their captions, not including a title page nor the bibliography, in 10pt font or bigger with 1" margins. There is no template requirement beyond this, but we encourage the authors to use the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science template available here. Appendix that exceed the page limit can be submitted as a single PDF file as Supplementary Material.
