RECOMB 2017 is jointly hosted by The University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The conference aims at bridging the computational, mathematical, statistical, and biological sciences. The conference features keynote talks by preeminent scientists in life sciences, proceeding presentations of peer-reviewed research papers in computational biology, and poster sessions on the latest research progress. RECOMB is partnering with Cell Systems and Journal of Computational Biology. Authors of accepted papers will be invited, but not required, to submit an edited version of the manuscript for a special issue of Cell Systems or Journal of Computational Biology (may subject to an additional expedited review).

RECOMB 2017 will be combined with the RECOMB-Seq satellite workshop. Sequencing related research papers rejected by RECOMB, may be resubmitted to RECOMB-Seq on an expedited review timeline. Please note the deadline for RECOMB-Seq (03 Feb, 2017)
