The Brazilian Symposium on Bioinformatics is an international conference covering all aspects of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. BSB is organized by the special interest group in Computational Biology ( CE-BioComp ) of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) . The initial editions of BSB, in 2002, were called WOB (Workshop on Bioinformatics) and were indexed by DBLP ; since 2005, WOB was renamed BSB, and the proceedings have been published in the series Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) by Springer Verlag. The previous editions, the proceedings of BSB 2018 will be published in LNBI .
In 2018, BSB will be running at Niteroi, RJ, Brazil. The meeting will happen from Octuber 30th through November 1st. We are looking forward to a lively and very productive meeting.

The submissions should contain original, high quality, not submitted or published elsewhere work. Manuscripts must be written in english and include an abstract.
The format to be used is “Lecture Notes in Computer Science” (LNCS). All the explanations and necessary files for this format (in Latex or Word) can be found at Instructions for Authors. We strongly recommend all prospective authors to download the necessary files from this site as they prepare their submissions; old versions of the LNCS style files could cause problems in the upload of the camera-ready paper.
BSB will accept full papers (up to 8 pages in length), extended abstract (up to 4 pages in length) and abstract (to be presented only as posters).
Manuscripts that deviate significantly from these guidelines may risk rejection without consideration of scientific merit.
Submission will be electronic through the meeting submission system.
You may also like to download the LaTeX and Word templates directly.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three experts in the field.
