Call for Papers
EuroMPI Workshop: International Workshop on Parallelism in 
Bioinformatics (proceedings published by ACM Digital Library)
Special Issue in the Journal Parallel Computing (Elsevier) (Impact 
Factor: 1.311, Quartile Q1)

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:
- MPI implementations in Bioinformatics.
- Parallel and distributed algorithms in Bioinformatics.
- Workload partitioning strategies in Bioinformatics.
- Memory-efficient algorithms in Bioinformatics.
- Parallel tools and applications in Bioinformatics.
- Multicore and cluster computing in Bioinformatics.
- Supercomputing in Bioinformatics.
- Grid/Cloud/P2P computing in Bioinformatics.
- Volunteer computing in Bioinformatics.
- Hardware accelerators (GPUs, FPGAs, Cell processors, etc.) in 

With regard to the Bioinformatics problems, many different alternatives 
exist: 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 DNA computing; etc.

All the details (paper format, submission system, important dates, etc.) at:

Kind regards.
