VENUE: Barcelona, Spain, 23 September 2018

We seek original, high-quality research papers, clearly focused on the 
application of Parallelism to any possible Bioinformatics problem. In 
particular, contributions are solicited on, but are not limited to, the 
following topics:
- Parallel and distributed algorithms in Bioinformatics.
- Workload partitioning strategies in Bioinformatics.
- Memory-efficient algorithms in Bioinformatics.
- Parallel tools and applications in Bioinformatics.
- Data-intensive Bioinformatics (including Big Data storage and processing).
- Multicore computing in Bioinformatics.
- Multithreaded computing in Bioinformatics.
- Cluster computing in Bioinformatics.
- Supercomputing in Bioinformatics.
- Cloud/Grid/P2P computing in Bioinformatics.
- Volunteer computing in Bioinformatics.
- Hardware accelerators (GPUs, FPGAs, etc.) in Bioinformatics.
- Heterogeneous computing in Bioinformatics.
- Green computing in Bioinformatics.
- Mobile computing in Bioinformatics.
- Emerging parallel programming models in Bioinformatics.
- Parallel performance evaluation, analysis, and optimization in 
- Parallel visualization, modelling, simulation, and exploration in 

With regard to the Bioinformatics problems, many different alternatives 
exist: bioinformatics applied to biomedicine and drug design; biological 
sequence analysis, comparison and alignment; motif, gene and signal 
recognition/discovery; molecular evolution; phylogenetics and 
phylogenomics; determination or prediction of the structure of RNA and 
protein; DNA twisting and folding; gene expression and gene regulatory 
networks; deduction of metabolic pathways; microarray design and 
analysis; proteomics; functional genomics; molecular docking; design of 
DNA sequences for molecular computing; etc.
