International Conference on Biocomputation, Bioinformatics, and Biomedical Technologies 


June 29 - July 5, 2008 - Bucharest, Romania

Call for Papers

Bio-oriented technologies became very popular in various research topics and industrial market segments. Current human mechanisms seem to offer significant ways for improving theories, algorithms, technologies, products and systems. A myriad of theoretical models, dedicated software solutions, and mathematical algorithms and calculi helps improving gathering and representing knowledge on human being. Bioengineering and biomedical computation and representation techniques rely on special biocomputing techniques inspired from this process. Bioinformatics itself constitutes a vast area of research and specialization, as many classical domains such as databases, modeling, and regular expressions are used to represent, store, retrieve and process a huge volume of knowledge. Large scale biosystems opened the need for specific devices, such as biomechanical, biorobotics, nanosensors, human-oriented control systems, etc. As progress is extremely fast, there is a continuous need to keep pace with the developments and achievements, as well as with challenging issues. BIOTECHNO brings together achievements and challenges for practical software and hardware support, highlighting the advances in biocomputation, bioinformatics, and biomedical technologies.

The BIOTECHNO 2008 initiates a series of events targeting traditional and advanced paradigms for biocomputation, bioinformatics, and biomedical technologies and systems. The conference covers also fundamentals on bio-ontologies and theoretical support, and highlights new challenging industrial applications and research topics.

Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations

The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published in the conference’s CD collection, together with the regular papers. Please send your presentations to


Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals can be for half or full day tutorials. Please send your proposals to

Panel proposals:

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies.
