Paper and Poster Submission Guidelines

Paper Submission Guidelines

Submitted manuscripts may not have not been published or be currently under consideration for publication in any other journal or conference with a refereed, archival proceedings. The Program Committee will rigorously review submitted manuscripts. Each accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors at the conference. Accepted papers will be published as a proceedings volume in the Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series from Springer-Verlag, which will be available at the conference. Authors should submit their manuscripts in PDF format according to the LNBI series guidelines: and use the proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf. Authors are encouraged to include their ORCIDs in their manuscripts.

Submitted papers must be at most 15 pages in length (in the LNBI format), excluding references, with optionally a clearly marked appendix containing supplementary material. While appendices will be available to the reviewers, consideration of supplementary material is left to the reviewers' discretion. Manuscripts should provide a complete account of the results presented without referring to the supplementary material. All submissions must be made online, through the EasyChair submission system, at the following address:

Authors must register on that web site before submition of the manuscript. A standard PDF file must be received by midnight on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024 (Anywhere on Earth, UTC-12) in order for a submission to be considered for publication.

Journal Publication:

RECOMB-CG proceedings will be published in LNBI.

Selected papers will be invited to publish extended versions in PLOS Computational Biology (

Alternatively, we invite extended versions of accepted papers to be submitted to PCI Math Comp Biol.

PCI Math Comp Biol has been launched in March 2020. It is a community of recommenders devoted to reviewing, improving and recommending high-level scientific articles previously posted on open archives in mathematical and computational sciences applied to all fields of biology. Evaluation and recommendation by PCI Math Comp Biol are free of charge. When recommenders decide to recommend an article, they write a recommendation text that is published along with all the editorial correspondence (reviews, recommender's decisions, authors’ replies) by PCI Math Comp Biol. The article itself is not published by PCI Math Comp Biol; it remains on the preprint server where it was posted by the authors. PCI Math Comp Biol recommenders can also recommend postprints, but this is done to a lesser extent.

Accepted extended versions will be published in the PCI journal:

Poster Submission Guidelines

We sollicite high-quality poster abstracts on novel computational or experimental results that fall within the general scope of the conference.

Submitted abstracts must be at most 2 pages in length including references and figures, in PDF format according to the LNBI guidelines (same template as paper submissions).
