BIOSTEC 2014 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas. Their names are not yet confirmed.


All accepted papers (full and short) will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library (

SCITEPRESS is member of CrossRef (

A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).


The awards will be announced and bestowed at the conference closing session.
