Welcome to the X-Meeting & BSB 2013 website


X-meeting is an annual event organized since 2005 by the Brazilian Association for bioinformatics and Computational Biology (AB3C), affiliated to the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), to provide a forum for Brazilian and international scientists to report on recent progresses and remarkable issues in the field. The Brazilian Symposium on Bioinformatics is an international conference which covers all aspects of Bioinformatics and Computational biology. BSB is organized by the special interest group in Computational Biology of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). The initial editions of BSB were called WOB (Workshop on Bioinformatics) and were indexed by DBLP; since 2005, WOB was renamed BSB, and the proceedings have been published in the series Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) by Springer Verlag. 

In 2012, both conferences were affiliated to ISCB, and in 2013, for the first time, X-Meeting and BSB will be co-located at Recife, PE, Brazil. The 2013 meetings will happen from November 3rd through 6th. We are looking forward to a lively and very productive meeting.
