Application Areas: Biomedical & Pharmaceutical
Deadlines: November 26, 2007 (abstract)
Type of Event: Workshop, International

Computational Biology is fast emerging as an important 
discipline for academic research and industrial 
application. The large size of biological data sets, 
inherent complexity of biological problems and the ability 
to deal with error-prone data all result in large run-time 
and memory requirements. The goal of this workshop is to 
provide a forum for discussion of latest research in 
developing high-performance computing solutions to problems 
arising from molecular biology. We are especially 
interested in parallel algorithms, memory-efficient 
algorithms, large scale data mining techniques, and design 
of high-performance software. The workshop will feature 
contributed papers as well as invited talks from reputed 
researchers in the field. Topics of interest include but 
are not limited to:

 * Bioinformatic databases
 * Computational genomics
 * Computational proteomics
 * DNA assembly, clustering and mapping
 * Gene expression and microarrays
 * Gene identification and annotation
 * Parallel algorithms for biological analysis
 * Parallel architectures for biological applications
 * Molecular evolution
 * Molecular sequence analysis
 * Phylogeny reconstruction algorithms
 * Protein structure prediction and modeling
 * String data structures and algorithms

Submission Guidelines:

Papers reporting original research (both theoretical and 
experimental) in all areas of bioinformatics and 
computational biology are sought. Surveys of important 
recent results and directions are also welcome. To submit a 
paper, upload a postscript or PDF copy of the paper from 
the workshop web page (  The paper 
should not exceed 12 single-spaced pages (US Letter or A4 
size) in 11pt font or larger. All papers will be reviewed. 
IEEE CS Press will publish the IPDPS symposium and workshop 
abstracts as a printed volume. The complete symposium and 
workshop proceedings will also be published by IEEE CS 
Press on CD-ROM and will also be available in the IEEE 
Digital Library.
