*************** HiCOMB 2016: Call for Papers **************************

15th IEEE International Workshop on High Performance Computational Biology

Monday, May 23 and Friday, May 27, 2016
Chicago, Illinois, USA


HiCOMB 2016 Call For Papers

High-performance computing is an integral part of research and development in
bioinformatics/computational biology and medical and health informatics. The large size and
complexity of biological data sets, and inherent complexity of the underlying biological
problems have collectively resulted 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- and compute-intensive problems arising from
all areas of computational life sciences. 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, manycores
and GPUs, and design of high-performance software and hardware 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
* Parallel algorithms in chemical genetics and chemical informatics
* High performance algorithms for systems biology
* Big data solutions for systems biology
* Cloud-enabled solutions for computational biology
* Energy-aware high performance biological applications

This year, the HiCOMB workshop will also host multiple sessions specifically dedicated to
parallel sequence analysis libraries. These sessions will be held primarily on Friday, May
27, and are continuation of the pSALSA workshop. The sessions will feature relevant
contributed submissions from HiCOMB, multiple invited talks, and discussion. Consequently,
we also seek paper submissions that focus on parallel Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)
