The IAENG International Conference on Bioinformatics (ICB'18) will take place in Hong Kong, 14-16 March, 2018.

The conference ICB'18 is held under the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2018. The IMECS 2018 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), a non-profit international association for the engineers and the computer scientists. The IMECS conferences serve as good platforms for our members and the entire engineering community to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. Our IMECS committees have been formed with over three hundred conference committees members who are mainly research center heads, faculty deans, department heads, professors, and research scientists from over 30 countries. The last IAENG conference has attracted more than eight 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: 978-988-14047-8-7). 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.
