February 05, 2007


Dear Colleagues,

We have received 37 chapters for the proposed call for book chapters focused on 'Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics'. Based on the contents of the accepted chapters, we have decided to divide the contributions into the following two volumes (titles are tentative):

Volume 1: Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics
Volume 2: Computational Intelligence in Medical Informatics

All authors will be notified by February 23, 2007. Please direct all your correspondences to <>


Thanks again for your contribution.


Best regards








Due to the large number of requests for deadline extension for the upcoming book on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics the editors have decided to make the following deadline extensions:



Information technologies have made a tremendous contribution to the development of bioinformatics research in recent years. But to conquer more complicated tasks such as micro-array data analysis, gene mapping, protein-protein interaction, biochemical pathways, and systems biology, more sophisticated techniques have become necessary. A wide variety of techniques from computational intelligence can be used to interpret information from biological sequences and molecules in a more efficient and effective way.

The Overall Objective of the Book

There exists a need for an edited collection of articles in this cross-disciplinary area. The book aims to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and latest empirical research findings in the area. Readers can benefit from this book in understanding the basics and problems of bioinformatics, as well as the applications of computational intelligence technologies in tackling the problems and the essential research topics in the field.

The Target Audience

The audiences of this book are senior or graduate students major in computer science, computer engineering, biostatistics, or management information system as well as professional instructors and researchers. The book is also written for professionals in bioinformatics who want to understand how computational intelligence techniques can be applied to accelerate bioinformatics research.

Recommended topics include but are not limited to the following:


The book is intended to be published in the Springer Verlag, Series - 'Studies in Computational Intelligence'. Please prepare the manuscript using the author guidelines and format given in the following link: Author Guidelines

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before June 30, 2006 , August 15, 2006  a 2-5 page manuscript proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of the proposed chapter.

Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by July 31, 2006 September 15, 2006, about the status of their proposals and sent chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by August 31, 2006 ,  October 30, 2006, November 30, 2006.
