Welcome to the BSB & X-Meeting 2013 website

The Brazilian Symposium on Bioinformatics is an international conference which covers all aspects of Bioinformatics and Computational biology. BSB is organized by the special interest group in Computational Biology of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). The initial editions of BSB 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. X-meeting is an annual event organized since 2005 by the Brazilian Association for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (AB3C), affiliated to the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), to provide a forum for Brazilian and international scientists to report on recent progresses and remarkable issues in the field.

In 2012, both conferences were affiliated to ISCB, and in 2013, for the first time, BSB and X-Meeting will be co-located at Recife, PE, Brazil. The 2013 meetings will happen from November 3rd through 7th. We are looking forward to a lively and very productive meeting.

6th Brazilian School of Bioinformatics - EBB

The Brazilian School of Bioinformatics (Escola Brasileira de Bioinformática - EBB) is organized since 2008 in conjunction with the Brazilian Symposium on Bioinformatics (BSB) in order to offer an opportunity for newcomers or curious students eager to get acquainted with this relatively new research field. The aim of EBB is to allow for students and researchers to learn and discuss about new techniques and trends in bioinformatics and computational biology. Courses are offered that are designed to cover theoretical and practical aspects of subjects both in the exact sciences (computer science, mathematics and statistics) and in the life sciences (molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, medicine, microbiology and others).

Researchers and practitioners willing to promote their areas of competence by disseminating their knowledge and sharing their expertise with a qualified audience are encouraged to submit course proposals. Please, check the call for course proposals for more details.
