We are excited to be holding the 18th Machine Learning in Computational Biology (MLCB) meeting as a two-day hybrid conference on November 30 and December 1, 9am-5pm PST, with the in-person component at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA. The event will be streamed live through YouTube and Zoom. Please feel free to forward this call for papers/participation to anyone who may be interested.
From its inception in 2004 to 2017, MLCB was an official NeurIPS workshop. Given the growth and maturity of the field, MLCB became an independent conference in 2019. For 2020-2022, MLCB was held virtually. The virtual conference format led to a record number of participants, which included 1000 registered participants via Zoom and > 3000 views on the YouTube live stream. Our sponsors include Recursion, Deep Genomics, and Amazon.
We will consider papers describing research on novel learning approaches or application areas in computational biology in two formats: 1) 8-page papers that are eligible to (optionally) be published online in an MLCB section of the Proceedings of Machine Learning Research. 2) 2-page abstracts that can describe work in progress (not eligible for publication).
Paper submission deadline: October 4, 2023.
