ABSTRACT
The International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB), the annual conference of the Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet), is hosted in one of countries of the Asia-Pacific region. The 2010 conference was awarded to Japan and has attracted more than one hundred high-quality research paper submissions. Thorough peer reviewing resulted in 47 (43.5%) accepted papers out of 108 submissions. Submissions from Japan, R.O. Korea, P.R. China, Australia, Singapore and U.S.A totaled 43.8% and contributed to 57.4% of accepted papers. Manuscripts originating from Taiwan and India added up to 42.8% of submissions and 28.3% of acceptances. The fifteen articles published in this BMC Bioinformatics supplement cover disease informatics, structural bioinformatics and drug design, biological databases and software tools, signaling pathways, gene regulatory and biochemical networks, evolution and sequence analysis.

Figure 1: Submitted vs. accepted articles by country.

Mentions: Of the 108 submissions received, we accepted 15 articles for BMC Bioinformatics, 25 for BMC Genomics[2] and six for Immunome Research[3], an independent BMC journal that publishes bioinformatics-driven immunology research, and one for IPSJ Transactions on Bioinformatics. The submitted articles originated from 19 countries with Taiwan and India contributing almost 43% of submissions and 28% of accepted articles (Fig. 1). Taiwan's proximity to Japan and the success of IncoB2008 [4] in Taipei may explain this very high submission rate. The lower acceptance rate of manuscripts from India compared to that of Taiwan is the result of several submissions that were outside the scope of the three concerned journals. Each submission was peer-reviewed by three PC members and/or sub-reviewers, excepting two, both of which had excellent scores from the reviewers, verified by the editors. In an attempt to raise the quality and impact of manuscripts, we introduced a second round of reviews for revised submissions that were originally judged as borderline papers. Two submissions underwent three rounds of revisions and reviewing before being accepted. We wish to thank the 83 Program Committee members and 56 sub-reviewers (Additional File 1) for lending their precious time, providing objective comments and responding promptly to our multiple review requests.
