In cooperation with:

AAAI (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence)



The purpose of BIOSTEC is to bring together researchers and practitioners,
including engineers, biologists, health professionals and
informatics/computer scientists, interested in both theoretical advances and
applications of information systems, artificial intelligence, signal
processing, electronics and other engineering tools in knowledge areas
related to biology and medicine.


BIOSTEC is composed of four co-located conferences, each specialized in at
least one of the aforementioned main knowledge areas.
