Call For Papers

Due to the safety concerns and travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, EAI BICT 2020 will take place online in a live stream.

Non-authors and Co-Authors of already registered papers can register for access to the live stream completely free of charge.

Scope

BICT 2020 aims to provide a world-leading and multidisciplinary venue for researchers and practitioners in diverse disciplines that seek the understanding of key principles, processes and mechanisms in biological systems and leverage those understandings to develop novel information and communications technologies.

BICT 2020 will feature the state-of-the-art keynote speeches, parallel technical sessions, focused special tracks, interactive demo/poster sessions, tutorials, and informative co-located workshops.
