It is with great pleasure that we are presenting the 12th IRIC International Symposium about Machine Learning Applied to Biological Systems that will take place in Montreal on October 23rd-24th 2018.

The rapid convergence of technological advances for high-throughput genomics and proteomics has created an unprecedented level of rich data sources in diverse biological contexts. The parallel development of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence approaches has likewise allowed innovative methods to discover meaning in complex datasets. This international symposium focuses on the intersection of these two domains and will offer a unique opportunity to hear eminent scientists describing their latest discoveries, from both the biological and computational perspectives.

We encourage students to communicate their findings in the format of poster presentations to stimulate the exchange of ideas and promote collaborations. Among the submitted abstracts, a few will be selected for 15-minute oral presentations.

We look forward to your participation in this exciting symposium which promises to be a unique interdisciplinary educational experience.
