Paper Submission and Publication:

Prospective authors are invited to submit unpublished work to ICIBM 2019. For paper submission, participants have two options for paper submissions:

  1. All papers prepared for BMC Genomics, BMC Systems Biology, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Medical Genomics, BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, and International Journal of Computational Biology and Drug Design (IJCBDD) will be submitted through EasyChair Conference System. Please click the following link EasyChair.org to submit to the ICIBM 2019. Please contact Dr. Xia Ning Xia.Ning@osumc.edu for any questions regarding submissions to BMC journals.

  2. Papers for special issue Genes should be directly submitted through this link Genes. Please contact Dr. Yan GuoYaGuo@salud.unm.edu with any questions regarding submission to Genes. The submission for ICIBM-2019 is a conference paper please follow the following steps for submission
    • Open the submission portal link Genes and click on the NEW SUBMISSION button on the top right corner of the page
    • Sign-in with your log-in and ID. If you do not have login information, follow the instructions on the page to setup a new one
    • Select the ICIBM 2019 conference and follow instructions for the submission process
    • Once completed, you will receive the submission approval and you will see the approved abstract under My submission (drop down from the head figure in the top right corner)
    • Then proceed to upload the full manuscript

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted to special issues based on review scores and topics. Publication will also depend on the final approval of editorial office and requires ICIBM registration.
