HiCOMB 2015 Call For Papers

High-performance computing became an integral part of research and development in bioinformatics and computational biology. 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 data-intensive and compute-intensive problems arising from molecular biology and related life sciences areas. We are especially interested in parallel and distributed algorithms, memory-efficient algorithms, large scale data mining techniques, including approaches for big data and cloud computing, algorithms on multicores and GPUs, and design of high-performance software for biological applications.

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:

Submission guidelines

Papers reporting on 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 PDF copy of the paper here. Submitted manuscripts may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references (see IPDPS Call for Papers for more details). 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.
