Call for papers

Submit paper at easychair

CMSB 2013 solicits original research articles on the computational modeling and analysis of biological systems, pathways, networks, data, and corresponding application domains. The conference brings together computer scientists, biologists, mathematicians, engineers, and physicists interested in a system-level understanding of biological processes. It covers theory, computation, as well as applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • original paradigms, formalisms, and languages for modeling biological processes
  • original models together with their application domains
  • frameworks, techniques, and tools for verifying, validating, analyzing, and simulating biological systems
  • high-performance computational systems biology and parallel implementations
  • inference from high-throughput experimental data
  • model integration from biological databases
  • multi-scale modeling and analysis methods
  • synthetic biology


Case studies in systems and synthetic biology are especially encouraged.

Submitted papers should describe original work that has not been previously published and is not under review for publication elsewhere. Papers must be edited in LATEX using the LNCS format and be submitted electronically as PDF files via EasyChair.  The limit for submissions is 12 pages. Appendices will not not be counted in the page limit.

There will be an award for Best Paper and a cash prize of $500 USD for the Best Student Paper. The criteria for a Student paper are that the leading (corresponding) author should be registered in a Masters or PhD program, the contributions and percentages of effort by all authors should be clearly stated in an appendix, and the paper should be submitted in group 'student paper' at Easychair. The cash prize is donated by TCSIM - the IEEE Technical Committee on Simulation.

Proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS/LNBI.

After the conference, a selection of papers will be invited to be extended and submitted to a special issue of Theoretical Computer Science.
