Best paper award
EURASIP Journal on Bioinformatics and Systems Biology announces the Best paper award. This award honors the author(s) of a paper of exceptional merit published in the journal. The prize will consist of a certificate and a monetary award of $1,000 that will be divided equally among all the authors of the paper. Eligibility is based on a three-year window. The winning paper must have reported in one of the volumes published during the previous three years.
The best paper award for 2015 will be based on papers published during the time interval 2012-2014 and will be announced in March 2015.
The European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) was founded on 1 September 1978 to improve communication between groups and individuals that work within the multidisciplinary, fast growing field of signal processing in Europe and elsewhere, and to exchange and disseminate information in this field all over the world. The association exists to further the efforts of researchers by providing a learned and professional platform for dissemination and discussion of all aspects of signal processing including continuous- and discrete-time signal theory, applications of signal processing, systems and technology, speech communication, and image processing and communication.
EURASIP members are entitled to a 10% discount on the article-processing charge. To claim this discount, the submitting author must enter the membership code when prompted. This can be requested from their EURASIP representative.

Aims & scope
The overall aim of EURASIP Journal on Bioinformatics and Systems Biology is to publish research results related to signal processing and bioinformatics theories and techniques relevant to a wide area of applications into the core new disciplines of genomics, proteomics, and systems biology.
The journal is intended to offer a common platform for scientists from several areas including signal processing, bioinformatics, statistics, biology and medicine, who are interested in the development of algorithmic, mathematical, statistical, modeling, simulation, data mining, and computational techniques, as demanded by various applications in genomics, proteomics, system biology, and more general in health and medicine.
Articles should emphasize original results related to the theoretical and algorithmic aspects of signal processing and bioinformatics, in close connection with the applications to genomics, proteomics, systems biology and medicine. Tutorial articles, especially those emphasizing strong components of signal processing or bioinformatics in multidisciplinary views of genomics, proteomics and systems biology are also welcome.
Review and tutorial (overview) style articles dealing with software and databases presentations are welcomed provided that they address important research topics and problems from the fields of bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics, computational neuroscience and systems biology. Short letters (or regular articles) dealing with the derivation of new results or with new derivations of well-known results of high impact in machine learning and computational statistics algorithms and that find applicability in bioinformatics and systems biology are also welcome.
The journal will embrace a wide range of topics, and will accommodate different exposition styles, to help scientists with various backgrounds, e.g., engineering, bioinformatics, or biology, to interact effortlessly and to facilitate the exchange of information across the multidisciplinary areas involved. EURASIP Journal on Bioinformatics and Systems Biology employs a paperless, electronic submission and evaluation system to promote a rapid turnaround in the peer review process.
The journal has been published under the open access model since 2006.
