The IAENG International Conference on Bioinformatics (ICB'08) will take place in Hong Kong, 19-21 March, 2008.

The conference ICB'08 is held under the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2008. The IMECS 2008 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), and serves as good platforms for the engineering community members to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. The last IMECS 2007 has attracted more than one thousand and one hundred participants from over 50 countries. All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceeding (ISBN: 978-988-98671-8-8). The abstracts will be indexed and available at major academic databases. The accepted papers will also be considered for publication in the special issues of the journal Engineering Letters, in IAENG journals and in edited books.
