Program committee of CIBB 2016


I’m a member of the program comittee of CIBB 2016, the 13th International meeting on Computational Intelligence for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics. You’re all invited to submit your papers before 15th May 2016.


New book chapter on Springer LNBI book post-CIBB 2014

Our chapter entitled “Extended Spearman and Kendall Coefficients for Gene Annotation List Correlation”, written by me, Marco Masseroli and Eleonora Ciceri, has been published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) book of the Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (CIBB) 2014 conference selected papers.

New journal paper published on IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics

Our paper “Software Suite for Gene and Protein Annotation Prediction and Similarity Search“, which I wrote with Marco Masseroli, has been published in the leading journal IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (volume 12, issue 4).

This journal issue is entitled Special Issue on Databases and Softwares in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, and our paper is related to the Search Computing project.

Take a look to it!


Support our running team at!

Our research group will have a team at run, an important event to collect money for cancer scientific research. The run will happen on Sunday 12th September 2015, and we’re collecting money for our goal.

You’re invited to make a donation and/or to participate to the run!


New journal paper published on BMC Bioinformatics

A paper that I wrote with Pietro Pinoli and Marco Masseroli from Politecnico di Milano just got published by the pre-eminent scientific journal BMC Bioinformatics. It is entitled “Computational algorithms to predict Gene Ontology annotations” and it’s been selected among the papers presented at the CIBB 2013 conference.

It is contained in the Volume 6 Supplement 6 of BMC Bioinformatics, entitled Selected articles from the 10th International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics. Take a look to it!

My poster at NIPS 2014

This year I will be again at NIPS 2014 international conference, and I will defend a poster entitled “Deep Autoencoder Neural Networks for Prediction of Biomolecular Annotations” at two workshops. One is MCLB 2014 – Workshop on Machine Learing in Computational Biology, and the other one is MLCDA 2014 – Workshop on Machine Learning for Clinical Data Analysis, Healthcare and Genomics.

NIPS 2014 will be held in Montreal (Quebec, Canada) from 8th to 13th of December 2014.

See you in Montreal!
