The Fourth International Workshop on Computational Network Biology: Modeling, Analysis, and Control (CNB-MAC 2017) will be held in Boston, MA, August 20. The workshop will be organized in conjunction with the 8th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB 2017), the flagship conference of the ACM SIGBio. The workshop aims to provide an international scientific forum for presenting recent advances in computational network biology that involve modeling, analysis, and control of biological systems and system-oriented analysis of large-scale OMICS data.

CNB-MAC 2017 solicits original research papers that report new research findings that have not been published elsewhere, highlights that present advances in the field that have been reported in recent journal publications, and poster abstracts for rapid dissemination of the latest research results in computational network biology. The main emphasis of the workshop will be on rigorous mathematical/computational approaches for studying biological networks, systems, and pathways and the analysis of large-scale OMICS data from a systems perspective.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

    • Inference of biological networks
    • Modeling and simulation of biological networks
    • Multi-scale modeling of human-microbiome-environment interactions
    • Network-based analysis of OMICS data
    • Network dynamics and network control
    • Detection, modeling, and analysis of regulatory modules in biological networks
    • Network-based prediction of drug response and potential drug targets
    • Pathways and networks in complex diseases
    • Incorporation of prior knowledge in biological system and data analysis

All paper, highlight, and abstract submissions should be made through the EasyChair online submission system:

[Partner journals] Original research papers accepted for presentation at CNB-MAC 2017 will be published in special issues of CNB-MAC 2017 partner journals: BMC Bioinformatics, BMC GenomicsBMC Systems Biology, and IET Systems Biology. Authors of an accepted research paper will have the opportunity to choose between a BMC journal and IET Systems Biology (further info). In the previous year, CNB-MAC 2016 papers were published in BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Genomics, and BMC Systems Biology.

[NSF Travel Award]  Thanks to the generous support provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Student Travel Awards will be given to student authors of outstanding research papers, posters, or highlight papers that have been invited for presentation at CNB-MAC 2017.  To be eligible, the potential applicant should be a US-based student at the time of paper/poster submission. In order to apply for the award, please send the following application materials to the Award Chair Prof. Ranadip Pal <>: (i) cover letter (describe the applicant’s current affiliation and student status, main research topics, and  research/academic achievements); (ii) current CV; (iii) support letter from main research advisor.
