The 28th International Conference on Genome Informatics Workshop (GIW) / BIOINFO 2017 will be held in Seoul, Korea from October 31st to November 3rd, 2017. It is great pleasure to announce that we are consolidating BIOINFO, the official annual meeting of Korean Society for Bioinformatics (KSBI), to the conference this year.

Call for Paper

Papers in all areas related to works that are ultimately devoted to the computational understanding of biological systems on a molecular basis will be considered.

GIW does not publish conference proceedings. Instead, all accepted papers by GIW 2017 will be published in a series of special issues of the following journals

  • ● Bioinformatics
  • ● Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology(JBCB)
  • ● Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics(TCBB)
  • ● BMC Bioinformatics
  • ● BMC Systems Biology
  • ● BMC Medical Genomics

Papers must not have been previously published and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format. All papers should be submitted at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=giw2017


In general, you should use the template of the journal whose preferred themes are closest to your submission. Select the button of the journal you think your manuscript fit best when you submit your manuscript through the submission server. Note that you need to pay publication fees in case your manuscript will be selected for publication. Please check the website of the relevant journal for more information. Check the button to state that you can pay the fee in these cases. Otherwise, your manuscript will not be selected for publication in these journals
