Fellow Colleagues,
following the experience of the previous edition, we propose our Special Session on Computational Intelligence for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology also at IEEE WCCI 2020 (Glasgow, UK).

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology deal with a wide range of problems and applications which, in recent years, have been successfully solved by means of Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning techniques. Moreover, due to technological progress, huge amounts of data concerning biological organisms are  gathered and collected (e.g. genes transcript, protein structures and the like), thereby demanding the use of parallel and distributed computing for facing Big Datasets and/or high-throughput application requirements. Further, in such fields, data usually encodes complex information, which is natively represented by structured records, such as sequences, graphs and images, most of which lie in so-called “non-metric spaces”, i.e. input spaces for which a meaningful (dis)similarity measure might not be metric, making the problem more challenging since ad-hoc (dis)similarity measures or embedding functions need to be defined.

This Special Session aims at collecting the latest research in Computational Intelligence applications for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, with emphasis on parallel/distributed computing and non-metric spaces analysis, by means of different (or hybridization of) Computational Intelligence techniques, from evolutionary meta-heuristics to neural computation, from pattern recognition to fuzzy systems.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

	• Network and Systems Biology
	• Gene expression, gene regulatory networks
	• Sequence analysis, alignment and comparison
	• Biological complex systems modelling
	• Predictive medicine and medical image analysis
	• Network medicine
	• Large-scale data mining and pattern recognition
	• Distributed and parallel computing systems for machine learning and data mining
	• Network generative models
	• Graph kernels and string kernels in biology
	• Exact/inexact motifs and pattern matching
	• Granular computing approaches for non-metric space analysis
	• Protein folding/function prediction
	• Analysis of metabolic pathways
	• RNA/protein structure prediction
