This symposium will bring together top researchers, practitioners, and students from around the world to discuss the latest advances in the field of Computational Intelligence and its application to real world
problems in biology. Computational Intelligence includes artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary algorithms, and other emerging techniques. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: gene expression array analysis, structure prediction and folding, drug design, molecular sequence alignment and analysis, metabolic pathway analysis, medical imaging and pattern recognition, analysis of large biological data sets, and a variety of other topics. The use of computational intelligence must play a substantial role in submitted papers. Submissions will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

Paper Submission: Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of no more than eight (8) pages including results, figures and references; submission details can be found on the symposium web site: Authors are expected to present their paper at the symposium. IEEE CIBCB 2009 will be held in conjunction with the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence 2009 (IEEE SSCI 2009). Over 20 such conferences will be co-located at this event.

Special Sessions and Tutorials: It is anticipated that the symposium will have a number of special sessions and tutorials. Consult the SSCI symposium web site for instructions on proposing a special session or tutorial. Papers for special sessions must have significant computational intelligence content.

Location: Nashville, Tennessee is well known for its cultural events and moderate climate. It is considered a global music center. Nashville is the capital of Tennessee and located on the beautiful Cumberland River.
