BSB 2012 is organized by the special interest group in computational biology of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). Since 2005 the BSB proceedings (*full papers*) have been published in the series Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics by Springer Verlag.



BSB 2012 is now an affiliated conference of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISBC).  Like SBC members, ISCB members will receive a discount of about 14% on their registration fees.
