The 18th International Conference on Data and Text Mining in Biomedical Informatics (DTMBIO)

December 16-19, 2024   


DTMBIO 2024 organizers are pleased to announce that the 18th DTMBIO will be held.

The main focus of DTMBIO is on biomedical and health informatics.

DTMBIO delegates will bring forth interesting applications of up-to-date informatics in the context of biomedical research. 

This year, we are particularly interested in techniques and applications of Big Data Analytics to biomedical and clinical research problems.

Biological researchers face the current challenge of making effective use of the enormous amount of electronic biomedical data 

in order to better understand and explain complex biological systems.

The biomedical data repositories include data in a wide variety of forms, including bibliographic information from electronic medical journals, 

gene expression data from microarray experiments, protein identification and quantification data from proteomics experiments, genomic sequences

gathered by massively parallel sequencing, and patient healthcare records. 

The ability to automatically and effectively extract, integrate, understand and make use of information embedded

in such heterogeneous – structured and unstructured – data remains a challenging task.

We invite the submission of papers that propose ways to address the variety of aspects involved in meeting this challenge.

All accepted full papers will be invited for a special issue of BMC Bioinformatics.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered

for publication in any other forum. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, 

In PDF format and formatted using the BMC Bioinformatics templates

(available in

Full papers:

Submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work.

Full papers may consist of up to eight pages. Full papers will be presented at the conference.

Short papers:

DTMBIO 2024 solicits short papers as well.

Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work.

Short papers will be presented at the conference, and will be given four pages in the proceedings.


We solicit quality posters that describe previously published or unpublished work.

Posters will be presented at the conference. In the last DTMBIO,

we had a session for a lightning talk (~5 min) for each poster.

All accepted full papers will be invited for a special issue of BMC Bioinformatics.

All papers (in PDF format) should be submitted to:
