The aim of this workshop called Bioinformatics and Artificial Intelligence (BAI) is to bring together active scholars and practionners in the frontier of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Bioinformatics. AI holds a tremendous repertoire of algorithms and methods that constitute the core of different topics of bioinformatics and computational biology research. BAI goals are twofolds : How can AI techniques contribute to bioinformatics research ?, and How can bioinformatics research raise new fundamental questions in AI ? Contributions will clearly point out answers to one of these goals focusing on AI techniques as well as focusing on biological problems.
