Biological Computing and Bio-medical Informatics are burgeoning fields of current applications of information and computer science. Information and computational models of living systems play an important role in modern biology, biomechanics, medicine and health care. They enable us to advance both the scientific and practical understanding of behavior and properties of such systems. The workshop on Biological Computing and Biomedical Informatics provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and developers to exchange ideas, promote fruitful discussions and initiate development on novel paradigms, methodologies and architectures for biological computations as well as for applications of computational intelligence in the wide and heterogeneous fields of biology, biomechanics, medicine and health care. It can provide to take a critical glance at the design of novel and emergent computing systems in biological and medical applications.
