   [Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message]<br>
on Advances in High-Performance<br>Bioinformatics, Systems and  
Synthetic Biology<br>
<br>of the 22nd Euromicro International Conference on<br>Parallel  
Distributed and Network-base Processing<br>
<br>12-14 February 2014  Turin, Italy<br><a  

<br>The computational approach to biology is dealing with an  
enormous<br>availability of data and an extreme complexity in the modelling  
and<br>analysis of life systems. Both these issues make the  
scaling-up<br>promise of High Performance Computing extremely appealing.  
the possibility of parallelising algorithms and analysis  
techniques<br>exploiting the various HPC emerging frameworks is receiving a  
lot of<br>interest. Examples include the porting of legacy applications  
to<br>clusters, e.g. those for genome analysis, and the use of  
technologies, cloud computing, on-chip supercomputing, GPGPUs,  
and<br>massively parallel architectures for the treatment of  
high-throughput<br>data-sets (e.g. Xeon Phi implementations). Arguably, HPC  
will turn out<br>to be an unifying aspect of the future integration of  
Systems and Synthetic Biology.<br>
<br>The aim of this special session is to present the latest efforts in  
High<br>Performance Computational Biology and to foster the integration  
of<br>researchers interested in HPC and Computational Biology.<br>
<br>Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to,  
HPC<br>experiences in:
<br>- Algorithms for genomics and proteomics<br>- DNA assembly and  
mapping<br>- Bio-Molecular sequence analysis<br>- Gene identification and  
annotation<br>- SNP analysis and classification<br>- Differential gene  
expression analysis and clustering techniques<br>
- Phylogeny reconstruction algorithms<br>- Biological databases for big  
data management<br>- Modelling and simulation of biological systems<br>-  
Automated verification in Computational Biology<br>- Virtual labs and  
- HPC-based approaches in Synthetic Biology<br>- DNA-based biological  
circuits simulations<br>- Modelling of structural protein properties<br>-  
Parallel architectures for Computational Biology<br>- System infrastructure  
for high throughput analysis<br>

<br>Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8  
pages<br>in the IEEE Conference proceedings format<br>
<br>(IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt). Double-bind review: the first page  
of<br>the paper should contain only the title and abstract; in the  
reference<br>list, references to the authors' own work should appear as  
for blind review" entries. Submissions can be made through  
the<br>submission web site at<br>
<br><a href="https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2014"  
<br>Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society<br>
<br><a href="http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/home"  
<br>in the same volume as the main track. Authors of accepted papers<br>are  
expected to register and present their papers at the  
Conference.<br>Conference proceedings will be indexed, among others, by 
IEEE explore,<br>DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.  A  
special issue<br>of a international journal collecting selected papers is  
under consideration.<br>
<br>Paper submission: 31st Jul 2013<br>Acceptance notification: 7th Oct  
2013<br>Camera ready due: 31st Oct 2013<br>Conference: 12th - 14th Feb
