13th IEEE International Workshop on High Performance Computational Biology
(In conjunction with the International Parallel and Distributed  
Processing Symposium - IPDPS)

Monday, May 19, 2014
Phoenix, Arizona, USA

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:
      - Bioinformatic databases
      - Computational genomics and metagenomics
      - Computational proteomics and metaproteomics
      - DNA assembly, clustering, and mapping
      - Gene expression analysis with RNASeq and microarrays
      - Gene identification and annotation
      - Parallel algorithms for biological sequence analysis
      - Parallel architectures for biological applications
      - Molecular evolution and phylogenetic reconstruction algorithms
      - Protein structure prediction and modeling
      - Next Generation sequence data analysis
      - Parallel algorithms in chemical genetics and chemical informatics
      - High performance algorithms for systems biology
      - Cloud-enabled solutions for computational biology
      - Big Data Solutions for Systems Biology
      - Energy-aware High Performance Biological Applications

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. The submission portal will be available in September.  
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.
